What Causes Truck Accidents in Fairfield County?

Hundreds of people are killed every year in large truck accidents and tens of thousands are injured. Understanding the causes of truck accidents is a key to preventing them.

Vishno Law Firm has decades of experience working with people injured in a wide range of truck accidents. Attorney Vishno has personally handed cases involving a variety of factors, ranging from alcohol and drug-impaired drivers to truck companies who fail to properly maintain or inspect their vehicles. We're familiar with the most common causes of truck accidents - and we're familiar with what it takes to earn injury victims the compensation they deserve after an accident.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents in Fairfield County include the following:

  • Operator error
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Brake failure
  • Tire failure

Large trucks are a potentially dangerous presence in Bridgeport, Stamford and throughout Fairfield County. And with major highways such as I-95 and I-84 used by thousands of drivers each day - including truckers - both truck drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to share the road safely with others. Truck accidents routinely involve significant damage and devastating brain injuries or other devastating conditions and wrongful death. Often, drivers of smaller vehicles could have done nothing to avoid being hit by a large truck.

Knowledgeable advice from a Fairfield County truck accident lawyer

Knowing what to do after a truck accident can be difficult and confusing. You or a loved one may face a long, painful recovery process. Medical bills may skyrocket. You may be unable to work to pay your household expenses.

Chances are you did nothing to cause your accident. But you may find that the truck driver denies any wrongdoing. The trucking company might be difficult to track down. The trucking company's insurance carrier may argue you were at fault. They might even hide or destroy critical evidence indicating truck driver error or negligent maintenance records.
