Truck Accident Attorney in Fairfield County
If you're dealing with the aftermath of a devastating big rig accident in Connecticut, talk to Vishno Law Firm immediately. A delay may affect your rights.
Truck accidents are among the most serious accident cases handled by Vishno Law Firm. Accidents involving large trucks tend to be several times more severe than car accidents and typically result in serious traumatic brain injuries and fatal injuries resulting in wrongful death claims. That's because 18-wheelers can weigh as much as 30 times more than a typical passenger vehicle.
To further complicate matters, the driver of the smaller car often has done nothing wrong. Often, the truck driver - or the company that hired the truck driver or maintained the truck - violated a regulation or made an error that causes the horrific accident.
Attorney Jeremy Vishno, a Fairfield County truck accident lawyer, understands truck accidents on I-95, I-84, Route 8 and other busy roadways can be particularly catastrophic. Thousands of vehicles pass through cities such as Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport and Danbury each day. A fully loaded truck can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. That's why tractor-trailer accidents in Fairfield County and throughout the Connecticut can be so devastating.
But whether it's large or small, any kind of commercial truck can cause serious accidents:
In any accident involving a commercial truck, the trucking company usually begins its investigation shortly after the wreck, sometimes in a matter of hours. The "accident team" for the trucking company will work hard to find ways to minimize the trucking company's liability. That's why it's critical that victims retain their own "accident team" to level the playing field. You can turn the tables by retaining an experienced trucking accident lawyer - Attorney Jeremy Vishno.
How do truck accidents happen in Connecticut?
Attorney Vishno is familiar with many of the common causes of truck accidents on Connecticut roads and highways. The causes of truck accidents cover a wide range. A driver might be texting while driving. In order to meet delivery times or stay awake behind the wheel, a driver might be speeding, driving recklessly or even under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Truck companies may neglect to maintain a vehicle or fail to conduct routine safety inspections, leading to a brake failure or tire blowout.
Truck drivers and truck companies are held to a higher standard than other drivers for a reason. But oftentimes, dealing with the aftermath of a truck accident becomes a complicated and complex legal matter. Accident victims seldom deal directly with the truck driver. Truck companies may try to hide or destroy evidence. They may even accuse you of causing the accident, even when rules, regulations and safety laws were clearly violated.
