Truck Accident

Connecticut truck accidents present unique fact patterns and issues that require specialized attention when someone is injured as a result of a negligent truck driver. Our Connecticut personal injury lawyers have decades of experience in representing injured parties and their families in a variety of different types of truck accidents and the development of these types of cases.

Due to the fact that trucks are generally heavier and many times are traveling at higher speeds on the interstate highways the damage caused by these vehicles can be quite significant. There are a great number of different types of trucks that cause significant personal injuries and in certain cases death which could include some or all of the following:

  • Truck
    Personal trucks;
  • Commercial trucks;
  • Delivery trucks;
  • Peapod;
  • UPS;
  • Federal Express;
  • Garbage trucks; 
  • Food delivery trucks;
  • Landscaping trucks;
  • Tractor-trailers;
  • 18 wheelers; 
  • Fuel oil trucks; 
  • Tanker trucks; 
  • Construction trucks;
  • Dump trucks;
  • Concrete trucks;
  • Store delivery trucks;
  • Furniture trucks;
  • Refrigeration trucks; and
  • Unregistered or uninsured trucks.

Depending upon the circumstances of your case there could be a great number of issues that need to be investigated and developed, experts may need to be consulted or hired, witnesses may need to be interviewed and a number of other tasks may need to be accomplished as soon as possible to preserve evidence and to properly develop your case.

There may also be liability issues, liability insurance issues, health insurance issues, deductibles, co-pays, determining what doctors need to be seen, conducting an investigation as to your loss of income claim, and hiring economics experts to properly develop this aspect of your damages and many other potential complications that could exist.

It is incredibly important that you contact an experienced Connecticut truck accident attorney at the earliest possible moment so that you do not make a mistake that could cost you tens of thousands of dollars if not completely destroy your case altogether. Our Connecticut injury lawyers take these cases on a contingency fee basis and advance the costs to develop your case. In other words, you will not have to come up with any money out of your own pocket to hire our law firm to represent you. We only get paid when we collect money damages for you. If there is no recovery you will owe no legal fees and no costs.
