Car, Truck & Motorcycle Accidents Are Everyday Realities.
We’ve witnessed the life-altering impact motor vehicle accident victims and their families are forced to endure, damage and pain often go beyond physical injuries.
A Driver's Obligation
Traveling along the highways and byways of New York and New Jersey, whether commuting to work or while on a family outing, is a necessary daily reality for the majority of individuals. There exists a level of trust and legal obligation for all drivers of motor vehicles to follow the laws of the road and show the proper level of caution and respect for fellow motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
As it is stated within the law, all drivers are charged with the specific duty to "see what is there to be seen" and make every effort to safely navigate the roads without causing accident or injury. When a driver operates a vehicle negligently or in violating of the many rules and operating standards, they can and should be held implicitly responsible for the injuries they cause.
We've Seen The Aftermath Of Accidents. We Are Here To Help.
The personal injury attorneys at Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek have witnessed the life-altering consequences that motor vehicle accident victims are forced to endure, and we aggressively pursue cases where negligence is evident. Whether you were behind the wheel or a passenger of a vehicle impacted by an inattentive or drunk driver, or were a pedestrian or bicyclist struck a moving vehicle, we use the most effective modern methods of determining fault and demonstrating driver negligence beyond a reasonable doubt.
Truck Accidents . . .
Large Vehicles Cause Serious Injuries
Because of the size and mass of trucks compared with those of cars, pedestrians, bicycles or other vehicles, injuries sustained in a truck accident tend to be severe. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident in New York, you deserve intelligent and exceptional representation from a lawyer who cares about the outcome of your case. At Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek, we are prepared to fight for every penny of compensation from every negligent party in a truck accident case.
Complicated Cases Require An Experienced Attorney
Truck accident cases can become complicated because there can often be many parties that bear some responsibility for the accident. Our firm ensures that we pursue every avenue of compensation for your injuries, whether that be driver fatigue and negligence, or negligence on the part of the trucking company, the truck manufacturer or another party. Because the layers of liability involved in a truck accident can be so complicated, there is often a good deal of money at stake in these cases. However, because the injuries sustained in a truck accident are often catastrophic, the person who has been injured and/or their family need all the compensation they can get. We can help you secure the maximum possible amount after a truck injury that results in a serious injury or even death.

Motorcycle Accidents . . .
When Yours Is The Vehicle That Nobody Sees
Motorcycles offer a great deal of freedom and exhilaration — until you get hit by a car and end up in a body cast. While unfair, it's true that many cars just don't see motorcycles on the road — in part because motorcycles are smaller than cars, and in part because drivers often aren't looking for bikes. If you're a motorcyclist who's been injured because of driver negligence — you're certainly not alone, nor do you have to fight for compensation alone. At Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek in New York, we provide strong representation for motorcyclists who are seeking compensation for injuries sustained by a negligent party.
Vulnerable Riders Endure Serious Injuries
In a collision between a motorcycle and a car, the motorcyclist usually ends up with more severe injuries because they lack the protection that a car provides. Injuries can include:
- Multiple broken bones
- Facial and dental injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
Our firm also handles wrongful death claims stemming from motorcycle accident cases. While another driver may not have seen you on the road, this doesn't absolve them from responsibility for your injuries. While you focus on healing, our firm will focus on securing the maximum possible compensation for your injuries.

Public Transportation Accidents . . .
The Double-Edged Sword Of Public Transportation
The good thing about public transportation is that you don't have to worry about driving, and can read, listen to music or just rest on your commute. The bad thing is that you have no control if or when an accident occurs. But you do have some control over what happens next. If you or a loved one has been injured on the subway, a bus or a ferry, you deserve compensation to help pay for your medical bills and lost wages. The smart and committed personal injury attorneys at Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek can help. We also represent the families of those who have been killed while taking public transportation. When your trust in the public transportation system is betrayed, you can trust us to secure the maximum compensation you deserve to help you and your family recover.

Pedestrian Accidents . . .
An Injury When You Least Expect It
New York City is a city of walkers. On any given day, the sidewalks are jammed with people commuting on foot — particularly in busy areas of the city. Some might be listening to music while they walk; some are texting; some even walk while reading a book. What none of them expect is to be hit by a car or a truck. But it happens. And when pedestrian accidents happen, those who are injured may face hefty medical bills and lost wages while they can't work. At Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek, we represent those who have been injured while getting around on foot. You don't have to go through this alone: contact us.
Poorly Lit Streets, Speeding Cars
New York pedestrians can be an aggressive bunch; many don't wait for stoplights to change before they enter crosswalks, and jaywalking is not an unknown occurrence. But that doesn't mean pedestrians are always to blame in a collision with a car. Some areas of Brooklyn have poorly lit stretches of roadway where the combination of speeding cars and pedestrians crossing the street wearing dark-colored clothes ends in hit-and-run accidents, severe injury or even death. Injured individuals and their families deserve full compensation to help pay for the aftermath. We are here to help our neighbors recover.
