The highways of Connecticut are busy routes for truckers, especially those driving on I-95, I-84, I-91, Route 7 or Route 8. Many truck accidents occur on these highways that cause devastating, life-altering injuries to people who live in Connecticut or are just passing through. At the Bridgeport, Danbury and Middletown personal injury law firm of Adelman Hirsch & Connors LLP, our long experience with the investigation and proof of claims in serious accident cases enables us to provide prompt and effective client service in complex commercial trucking accidents.

Truck accidents are different than car accidents and require an in-depth understanding of the action of brakes, lines of sight, stopping times, and other factors that differ from the operation of normal vehicles. In truck accident cases, our attorneys emphasize a prompt and thorough investigation of the facts that bear upon liability and causation through inspection of the vehicles involved, forensic analysis, interviews with lay witnesses, and review of the driver logs and vehicle maintenance records relating to the truck. Preservation of the evidence is often critical to the success of a truck accident case, so our early involvement with your claim can help your case significantly. Our familiarity with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations helps us know what to look for as we compare the circumstances of the accident to the requirements of federal law.
Another characteristic of our approach to trucking accidents is our careful identification of all potential defendants. Due to the complex ownership, contractual, and lease relationships in the commercial trucking industry, we often find that multiple defendants can be held accountable for your injuries. Given the severity of the physical injuries that can result from truck accidents at any speed, the availability of multiple sources of compensation can make a significant difference to the plaintiff whose projected losses might be shown to be several millions.
