When you’re driving in your car, or out and about on foot, there’s nothing you can say or do to protect yourself from the impact of a large truck. With tens of thousands of pounds behind it, an improperly operated big rig can be a dangerous weapon with serious—or even deadly—consequences. That’s why, if you’ve been hurt in a Connecticut truck accident, you need an experienced Groton injury lawyer on your side to make sure you are properly compensated for your injuries.
You should never try to handle the aftermath of a truck accident on your own. Tractor-trailer crashes come with a lot of confusion, including figuring out exactly who was to blame; sometimes, it isn’t always just the truck driver’s fault. Other negligent parties can include the truck company, the person charged with maintaining the truck, the person tasked with loading the cargo, or even the local government that did not pave a road properly. Your Groton truck accident attorney knows how to evaluate your case thoroughly to determine who should pay for your pain and suffering.
No Two Connecticut Truck Accidents Are Exactly the Same
Your case is special. You should not accept a low-ball offer from the trucker’s insurance company. The insurance adjuster want to clear away your case file as quickly as possible, while settling for the smallest amount of money she can get away with. When you work with a personal injury attorney, he should look all the factors that make your accident unique— including the type and severity of your injuries—as well as investigate what may have caused the wreck.
At our Groton law office, we meet with truck accident victims suffering from many different injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Serious head trauma
- Confusion, memory loss, blurred vision, and other issues caused by brain injuries
- Deep, painful lacerations
- Loss of limbs
These injuries are due to the negligence of another person and can be caused by:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Pressure from the truck company on the driver to drive faster
- A defect in the vehicle’s design, or one that occurred in the manufacturing process
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Unsafe driving conditions
- A poorly maintained vehicle
- Distracted driving
