Bridgeport Truck Crash Attorneys
Truck drivers are expected to maintain a commercial driver's license, obey strict federal trucking laws and closely abide by the rules of the road. Truckers are held to exacting standards for a reason. Semi trucks and other large tractor-trailers can cause serious and fatal injuries to other motorists.
Despite strict laws and regulations designed to prevent truck accidents, such accidents are still far too common. Truck driver errors are often the cause of such accidents. Examples of truck driver errors include:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Failure to properly secure loads
- Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
- Weight violations
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions

Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys
Truck accident cases are very distinct from car accident claims. To properly handle a truck accident case, a personal injury attorney must have a thorough understanding of complex insurance coverage issues, trucking company policies and commercial trucking laws.
Our firm has more than a dozen personal injury attorneys. We have handled thousands of personal injury claims, including numerous truck accident claims. Our experience handling truck accident claims is a distinct advantage in this highly specialized area of personal injury law.
Serious Injuries and Wrongful Death Claims
Because truck accidents often cause serious or fatal injuries, it is important that such cases be handled with a high degree of competence and care. Our attorneys have experience representing clients who have sustained life-altering injuries such as brain damage, severe back and neck injuries, spinal cord damage and other serious injuries. We have also obtained compensation on behalf of many family members in wrongful death claims.
Our attorneys take time to properly investigate the cause of truck accidents and gather evidence that is critical to the success of such claims. Where necessary, we have access to accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, vocational experts, life care planners and other expert witnesses who can be helpful in complex truck accident claims.
