Our Norwalk Truck Accident Lawyers Hold Liable Parties Accountable

When a driver violates a traffic law causing a crash to occur, Connecticut law allows the crash victim to hold them legally responsible for any injuries or financial damages. Our car accident lawyers can build a case against the driver and file a claim or lawsuit.

While the same applies to commercial truck accidents, this is not the only option. Instead, we usually pursue compensation from the at-fault trucker’s employer.

Under the doctrine of respondeat superior, the negligent driver’s employer is generally vicariously liable for an accident. This is true when:

  • The driver is an employee of the company
  • They are working when the accident occurs
  • They are engaged in work-related tasks

The trucking company or corporation might also be directly liable under some circumstances. This could occur when:

  • The driver has a history of careless or reckless driving
  • The driver lacked training or the appropriate license
  • The company pressured the driver to violate hours of service laws
  • The company failed to provide adequate maintenance or repairs
  • The accident occurred because of a cargo shift or similar concerns

Our truck accident lawyers in Norwalk, CT, know how to investigate a collision to determine who might be at fault and how this affects liability. Typically, we pursue these cases against trucking companies and base our insurance claims on their larger corporate liability policies. This may allow us to seek more money for clients with severe and catastrophic injuries without worrying about policy limits.

How Can a Norwalk Truck Crash Attorney Help Me Get Justice?

In Norwalk, CT, personal injury cases, our lawyers get justice for our clients by:

  • Holding liable parties accountable
  • Recovering fair compensation based on recoverable damages

You can expect our truck accident attorneys to:

Protect Your Rights

The insurance carriers, trucking company, and defendant’s lawyers will do everything they can to pay as little as possible to settle your case. This could include employing unfair tactics to use your own words against you, settling before you understand the value of your case, or denying your claim. Our attorneys handle all communication with them to protect your right to seek and secure fair compensation.

Build a Compelling Case for Financial Recovery

We have the knowledge, skills, and resources to develop strong support for your insurance claim or lawsuit. We investigate the crash to determine what happened and the role the driver, trucking company, and other parties played.

Document and Value Your Recoverable Damages

As a part of our investigation, we gather all necessary documents and information to show your full range of expenses and losses. We use this to estimate a fair settlement range for the case, which is crucial to our settlement negotiations. We can also present this evidence at trial if we need to show the jury the damages you suffered because of their truck accident injuries.

Advocate for Your Best Interests

Throughout your case, our attorneys will fight for the best possible outcome for you. We provide legal representation, guidance, and support from start to finish. You can expect constant communication and quick answers whenever you have a question.

Represent You Based on Contingency

We do not ask Norwalk truck accident victims to pay any upfront fees or costs when we handle their case. Instead, we get reimbursed for the money we spend from the compensation we recover. You only pay if we win your case.

Our Norwalk Truck Crash Attorneys Seek Fair Compensation in Collision Cases

Whether we negotiate a fair settlement or take a personal injury lawsuit to trial, our goal is to recover maximum compensation based on your expenses or losses. We use the evidence we collected to show your damages and demand an appropriate payout from the trucking company’s insurer.

Each case is unique, including their injuries, costs, and losses. However, many of our clients suffer the same types of injuries. The recoverable damages we often pursue for clients hurt in a truck collision include:

Economic Damages

Economic damages include all the financial expenses and losses incurred because of a Norwalk truck crash. This primarily focuses on your medical care. It begins with ambulance transportation from the scene, emergency department assessment, treatment, surgery, hospitalization, inpatient rehabilitation, follow-up, prescribed medications, therapies, and more.

We also consider the costs associated with the damage to your vehicle, your lost income, and out-of-pocket expenses.

Non-Economic Damages

We can recover compensation for intangible losses suffered because of a truck accident. Examples include pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, scarring and disfigurement, reduced enjoyment of life, and more.

Future Damages

Many severe and catastrophic injuries are not fully healed when we negotiate for a fair settlement. We seek damages for future care costs, diminished earning capacity, and long-term intangible losses. This could include ongoing care and support for permanent disabilities.

Wrongful Death Damages

When a Norwalk truck accident victim dies, our attorneys can file a wrongful death case. Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 52-555 only allows the estate executor to file a wrongful death action. Our attorneys work with the executor to build a case and seek damages for surviving family members.
