New York Failure to Use Turn Signals Lawyers
If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident with a truck in the New York area, and the truck caused the accident by failing to use their turn signal, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Because of the massive size of commercial trucks, they can cause devastating, often deadly injuries in accidents. Truck drivers should exercise caution when operating these vehicles. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable via a personal injury claim.
The injuries from a trucking accident can lead to physical and mental trauma, a lengthy recovery, and financial strain from missed work and lost wages. You should never have to handle a personal injury case alone.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
A lawyer can often be the make-or-break factor in a personal injury case. In cases involving commercial trucks, the trucking company will likely get involved, using aggressive insurance agents and corporate lawyers to defend against your claim. They will likely try to claim that you were at fault for the accident, often using sneaky tactics to trick you into making damaging recorded statements. When you hire a lawyer, they will be able to handle all communications with the opposition on your behalf to protect your claim.
Lawyers are also helpful because they take the burden of the claim off your shoulders. After an accident involving a commercial truck, you need to spend time focusing on your health and recovery, not trying to teach yourself the law. An experienced lawyer will be able to assess your claim, gather the evidence, hire experts, and understand the options in your case. While you rest, they can ensure you get the full amount of compensation you deserve, whether through a negotiated settlement or through a trial. With a lawyer, you have a higher chance of recovering the full amount of compensation you deserve, and with far less stress.

Cases We Handle
If a truck driver fails to use their turn signals, it can cause serious injuries. Common injuries resulting from a failure to use a turn signal include:
- Broken Bones
- Torn ligaments
- Head or neck injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Wrongful death
All of these injuries, plus many others, can have a significant and lasting impact on your life. Through a personal injury claim, you can recover compensation for any damages resulting directly from your accident, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Property damage
- Rehabilitative expenses
- Disability expenses
- Pain and suffering
Furthermore, if a family member passed away as a result of a truck accident, you may be able to recover compensation for losses including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income, lost emotional support, and more.
While a failure to signal case will usually mean the driver themselves was negligent, it may be possible to hold their employer negligent as well. If the trucking company failed to run background checks or ignored a bad driving record when hiring the driver, or if they failed to train them properly, the company may share responsibility for your injuries. This can be highly beneficial to your case, as the company will likely have a far larger insurance policy than the driver alone.
