Truck Accidents

Middlebury Truck Accident Attorneys

Fighting for Maximum Compensation

On account of their huge size and inability to quickly brake from a high velocity, trucks, as well as trailers and tractors, can cause some of the worst kinds of collisions, in turn leading to some of the most horrific injuries or even death. While the drivers of these massive commercial vehicles are supposed to take extra precautions, they can still commit human error due to negligence, exhaustion, distraction, carelessness, or rash driving responses.

Moreover, even if the truck drivers themselves are following all traffic codes or on the alert for hazardous road conditions, they cannot help it if the truck manufacturers did not check for faulty parts, or if the loading operators improperly weighed a truck’s cargo. Regardless of whatever caused the accident, you do not deserve to pay for the extreme financial costs of extensive medical treatments. Let our Middlebury truck accident lawyers here at Griffin Injury Law, LLC support you during this difficult time.

Causes of Truck Accidents in Connecticut

One of the most typical reasons that truck drivers get involved in collisions is tragically due to negligence. The actual causes of such negligence can be quite varied, however. Sometimes drivers are simply fatigued by driving thousands of miles on the highway without enough rest breaks. Alternatively, poor weather could cause dangerous driving conditions, but some truck operators may want to reach their destination as fast as possible and try to take the risk.

Just a few examples of other kinds of factors which lead to truck collisions include:

  • Malfunctioning of the truck due to faulty or defective truck parts or design during manufacturing
  • Negligent design of the highways or roads, or lack of proper road maintenance
  • Lack of training on the part of the truck driver
  • Reckless and irresponsible driving
  • Rest/ sleep policies to prevent exhaustion related accidents
  • Failure to obey traffic laws, road signs, lights, and other signals
  • Failure to yield or stop in time at intersections
  • Trucks being overloaded or improperly loaded with cargo
  • Lack of proper maintenance of the truck or its cargo bed
  • Dangerous weather conditions
