Federal transportation regulations and road safety rules exist to prevent serious semi-truck accidents. Unfortunately, truck operators and their employers often neglect safety precautions, increasing the likelihood of severe collisions and catastrophic injuries.
You could be dealing with life-threatening injuries if you’ve been in a truck crash. Times like these can be difficult, but the personal injury lawyers from Connecticut Trial Firm are here to help you recover. A Connecticut truck accident lawyer from our firm can fight for the damages you need to cover your medical bills and manage lasting injuries.
Types of Truck Accidents a Connecticut Attorney Can Seek Damages For
There are many negligent driving behaviors and other factors that can result in a serious truck collision. Our team has years of experience investigating a wide variety of truck crashes, so we’re familiar with all the common causes behind these types of incidents.
Our Connecticut truck accident lawyers can use their valuable experience and legal knowledge to take action for a crash involving any of the following factors:
- Driver fatigue
- Intoxicated driving
- Distracted driving
- Poorly trained driver
- Failure to follow hours of service regulations
- Defective or malfunctioning truck part
- Poor or lack of truck maintenance
- Cargo loading issues
- Failure to follow road safety rules
These are just a few of the factors that can lead to a dangerous highway accident. If you’ve been involved in a collision caused by one of the safety hazards listed above or something else, our team can get to the bottom of your case and find the evidence we need to build a strong claim for compensation.
Holding the At-Fault Party Liable for Your Truck Accident
To get the compensation you need to afford quality medical treatment, repair your vehicle, and manage other issues caused by the crash, we’ll have to determine who should be held liable. To do so, our truck accident lawyers in Connecticut must investigate your accident and collect evidence that shows how the incident occurred and who caused it.
Every personal injury case needs a foundation of facts and hard evidence to be successful. Our team can visit the scene of the incident, work with accident reconstructionists, and gather the following forms of evidence to build a strong claim on your behalf:
- The official police accident report
- Footage of the crash from nearby traffic and security cameras
- Photos of the accident scene and your injuries
- Eyewitness testimony
- Your medical records
- Statements from accident reconstructionists
Once we’ve collected the evidence listed above, we’ll analyze it and work hard to determine who should be held liable for your injuries and losses. Depending on the factors that caused your accident and the evidence we find, we may choose to take action against one of the following parties:
- The truck driving
- The trucking company
- A truck parts manufacturer
- The party in charge of maintaining the truck
- The cargo loaders
- Another driver
Compensation a Truck Accident Lawyer from Connecticut Can Fight For
At Connecticut Trial Firm, we understand how financially stressful the aftermath of a truck collision can be, which is why we’re here for you. Whether we pursue compensation for your injuries and accident-related losses from the insurance company or in the courtroom, we’ll fight relentlessly to recover the following damages for you:
Economic damages can provide life-changing compensation for the medical bills, future treatment costs, vehicle repair costs, and other expenses you’ve incurred due to your accident. These damages can also replace the wages you’re unable to earn during your physical recovery period.
If you’ve sustained a long-term injury or disability that medical professionals predict will affect your ability to work and earn money, economic damages can also make up for your reduced earning capacity. Our truck accident attorneys in Connecticut can work hard to calculate how much you’re owed for your economic losses and fight for the correct amount of compensation.
While economic damages are an important part of your personal injury claim, you’ll also want to pursue compensation for the intangible and emotional impacts that the incident has had on you. That’s where non-economic damages come into play.
These damages can help you cope with any pain and suffering, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life you experience due to your accident and injuries. Our team can work with you to identify the non-economic losses you’ve been burdened with and determine how much compensation you need to deal with each one.
