Trucks and Commercial Vehicles


When a truck is involved in an accident, the accident is almost always severe. We are familiar with the devastating injuries when a large commercial vehicle hits another motor vehicle, a motorcycle, a bicycle or a pedestrian. We also know firsthand that the larger the case the harder our adversaries will try to defeat or devalue the claim.

The Gucciardo Law Firm overcomes this increased resistance on a regular basis. We have fought and won cases against trucking companies, corporations and their insurance carriers, with notable recoveries for a myriad of injuries and fatalities. Preserve your rights by calling our attorneys without delay.

Truck Accidents Demand A Thorough And Aggressive Approach

When a tractor-trailer or commercial fleet vehicle is involved in a traffic crash, the news is quickly relayed to their headquarters. The trucking company and its insurance company will dispatch their own investigators and “damage control” crews to the scene. This advantage must be countered swiftly. Prompt and full attention to the case is paramount. Evidence proving the fault of the truck must be viewed, photographed and preserved. Statements from witnesses must be obtained as soon as possible.

If your family member was involved in such an accident, our seasoned representation can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. Charles Gucciardo and all of the trial lawyers of our firm are respected by the insurance companies and defense firms for their courtroom record from decades of plaintiffs’ representation. Those entities know that they will not be able to intimidate us or to settle the case quickly and quietly for a fraction of the value.

“If the defense does not want to settle the case with me for the amount it is legitimately worth, then we are going to try the case. It is that simple.” ∼ Charles Gucciardo

Our Approach Works

Some lawyers do not appreciate the legal issues or powerful forces at play. Some lawyers buckle at the first hint of a trial. (Most lawyers have never tried a case to verdict — ask for proof.) Our firm invests in cases, hiring professional investigators, accident reconstruction specialists and other professionals who can help us establish the defendants’ negligence. We place the trucking firm or employer on notice to preserve black box and GPS data, maintenance records, driver’s logs and other telltale evidence that may sway negotiations or persuade a jury. We are always prepared to go to court to prove our case.

We have been prosecuting truck, taxi, livery and commercial vehicle cases for well over 30 years across all five boroughs of New York City and Long Island: 18-wheelers, freight trucks, UPS and FedEx package trucks, delivery vehicles, taxis, and shuttles. We identify all sources of insurance coverage and seek the maximum compensation, knowing that the money must cover many needs for many years.
