Accidents involving semitrucks often result in catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. The lawyers at Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, in North Haven, Connecticut, have extensive experience helping individuals and families recover optimal compensation in motor vehicle accident cases involving 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles.
When Serious Injuries Have Occurred
Causes of trucking accidents are not like other vehicle accidents. When a semitruck is involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle, there are almost always serious or catastrophic injuries. Brain injuries, spine injuries, paraplegia and wrongful death are not uncommon. We assist the loved ones of individuals who were in fatal truck accidents. In addition, commercial vehicles are highly regulated. Truck drivers and trucking companies must follow strict guidelines established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Our lawyers have an in-depth understanding of the state and federal laws that regulate commercial vehicles operating in the state of Connecticut. Our firm regularly works with accident reconstruction experts, medical experts and rehabilitation experts to determine the cause of the accident and the long-term consequences our clients' injuries will have on them and their family.
Hiring A Trucking Accident Attorney
It is extremely important to quickly hire an experienced accident lawyer. Once hired, our attorneys quickly begin preserving evidence that may otherwise be lost, including driver's logs and vehicle black boxes that record speed and braking at the time of the accident. In addition, we recognize the importance of obtaining the maintenance records of vehicles involved in accidents as well and the driving record of the truck driver.
