  • Improper loading of freight

  • Inexperienced drivers

Many parties may be liable for the injuries you sustain during a wreck with a semi-truck. We will work with you to pursue claims against the responsible parties, including the trucking company, trailer owner, truck driver, or others.

Investigating Your Truck Accident: Connecticut Truck Accident Attorneys

We will fully investigate your trucking accident to evaluate all critical evidence. Many trucks are equipped with a black box that records vital information regarding the truck's speed and brake conditions. Many are also equipped with global satellite positioning systems. We will gather and review all of this electronic data, and our investigators will interview witnesses and examine log books to prepare the strongest case.
