Causes of Fatal Trucking Accidents in CT

Trucking companies and their drivers have a legal obligation to operate their vehicles safely, and companies that neglect safety should be held accountable. Overworked, tired drivers and negligent trucking companies are common causes of fatal truck accidents. Some truck drivers may not be appropriately trained or licensed, and others may illegally drive while fatigued. Some trucking companies do not adequately maintain their vehicles, leading to equipment failures or malfunctions that cause accidents. If your loved one lost their life due to a trucking accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

The insurance company’s primary goal is to preserve their profits, and they will often try to settle your case for significantly less than you deserve. Our attorneys have decades of experience negotiating with insurance companies to get the highest settlements possible for our clients. However, if the insurance company refuses to pay what your claim deserves, you may decide not to settle and file a civil lawsuit.

Parents, children, and spouses of fatal truck accident victims may be able to bring a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties. Wrongful death claims are complex because the plaintiff has the burden of proving that the defendant was negligent, which may require extensive investigating and hiring experts. The wrongful death lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo have the experience and resources necessary to prove your case and recover the total amount you deserve for your loss.

What Type of Compensation is Available?

While no amount of money can ever replace a loved one, surviving family members should not have to suffer financially after such a devastating loss. Our attorneys have over 80 years of experience helping families of fatal truck accident victims get compensation for things like:

  • Funeral and burial costs;
  • The victim’s medical bills before death;
  • The victim’s pain, suffering, and mental anguish before death;
  • Surviving family members’ pain, suffering, and mental anguish;
  • Loss of companionship;
  • Loss of future earnings; and
  • More.
