How we assist Connecticut victims of truck accidents

Monday August 4, 2014

Last week, we discussed how fatal truck accidents are on the rise in Connecticut and the rest of the United States. One of the reasons for this is that as the economy continues to make improvements Americans are making more purchases, therefore requiring more trucks on the roads to deliver the goods.

Even though there are numerous federal regulations in place attempting to reduce the number of fatal accidents involving semi-trucks, they continue to occur because of problems such as fatigued driving, faulty parts or a lack of proper screening for drivers.

As we mentioned in the last post, people who are injured or families who lose loved ones in truck accidents involving these problems or other acts of negligence are often entitled to compensation in personal injury lawsuits.

In fact, our law firm has been representing Connecticut victims of truck accidents and their families for many years. We understand that truck accident cases are different from regular car accident cases for a variety of reasons, and they need to be treated as such.

For example, insurance companies for trucking companies often begin investigating immediately following an accident and their “findings” often minimize the liability of the truck driver or trucking company. The settlement offers they make to accident victims can then be deceptively low.

That’s why it’s important to never accept an insurance company’s initial offer. Instead, the accident victims need a fierce advocate of their own to make sure that an independent investigation takes place and that the accident victims get the compensation they are entitled to.
