Connecticut Truck Accident Attorneys

Serving Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford & All of Connecticut

Commercial truck accidents are some of the most devastating wrecks that occur on America’s highways. Each year, around 130,000 injuries are sustained in truck accidents. The size, weight, and mass of a tractor-trailer all combine to make it a dangerous threat in Connecticut’s heavy, congested traffic.

If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a Connecticut truck accident, our Ridgefield truck accident attorneys at Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP can help you effectively fight for the compensation you deserve.

What to Do If You Are Injured in a Truck Accident

The first thing you should do after a tractor-trailer accident is seek medical attention. Even if you feel “fine,” some injuries – such as brain injury – do not show symptoms immediately. You should be examined by a qualified medical practitioner as soon as possible.

Every time a tractor-trailer accident occurs, the motor carrier company will send investigators, representatives, and lawyers to the scene as quickly as possible to protect the company’s best interests. With this in mind, the most important thing you can do after a truck accident is contact our firm. We work to make sure essential evidence is preserved in your case, and help you thoroughly document the accident scene.

Do not sign any authorizations or give any statements in the aftermath of your truck accident, since this could potentially harm your case; instead, take immediate action to retain legal representation from our experienced truck accident attorneys.

Compensation in a Truck Accident Case

If your truck accident case is successful, the person (or parties) who are found liable for your injuries can potentially pay you:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Property damages
  • Long-term or permanent physical disability or disfigurement
  • Punitive damages (in some cases)

In a personal injury case, “damages” are designed to restore you to the position you were in before the accident and your resulting injuries.

Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers in Connecticut

Our personal injury law firm hires the necessary experts to strengthen your case. For example, we may seek the testimony of an accident reconstruction specialist, a forensic tire expert, or a trucking expert who specializes in the standard of care of truck drivers.

All fees and expenses related to your case are covered by our attorneys. You only need to reimburse us at the end of a case if you collect a settlement or award. If no compensation is recovered in your case, you do not owe us anything.
