What Should Happen After a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, you should seek medical treatment for your injuries. You should also call 911 to report the collision. Next, you should obtain the truck driver’s name and contact information, along with the names and contact information of possible witnesses. Finally, get in contact with one of Carter Mario’s truck accident attorneys in North Haven to represent you during your claim and possible lawsuit.

Responsibility & Liability in Truck Accidents

The commercial trucking industry is subject to extensive oversight by the Federal and State government. Due to the large size of commercial trucks and the potentially lethal cargo they transport, truck drivers must hold special licenses. Despite government oversight and licensing requirements, common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Drivers who lack sufficient training
  • Lack of proper maintenance
  • Excessive loads
  • Improperly secured loads
  • Drivers who drive after consuming alcohol or drugs
  • Negligent driving

Proving Negligence in Your Claim

To obtain a favorable settlement or judgment at trial, you must prove the truck driver caused the collision. You have a better chance of proving the truck driver’s negligence if you produce evidence supporting your claim. Fortunately, Federal law requires the commercial trucking industry to maintain extensive records such as rest logs, maintenance records, black box data, and travel logs.

Differences in Truck & Other Motor Vehicle Accidents

Compared to regular motor vehicle accidents, commercial truck collisions are more complex. Truck accidents require more time and resources to investigate and prosecute. This is because commercial truck collisions tend to involve multiple vehicles and cause significant casualties.

Potential Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents

A commercial truck is a 40-ton object. Accordingly, an impact involving a commercial truck can cause severe injuries. Truck accident victims frequently suffer:

  • Bone fractures
  • Torn muscles
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Torn muscles and ligaments

What Damages Can You Seek in a Truck Accident Claim?

Due to the severity of the injuries they suffer, truck accident victims often need extensive medical treatment to recover from their injuries. The cost of this medical treatment often causes truck accident victims to declare bankruptcy. Fortunately, injured victims can claim compensatory damages for the cost of their medical treatment and general damages for the pain and suffering they experienced.

Trucking Accident Claims FAQ

No one expects to be involved in or injured due to a truck accident. Injured victims must deal with the challenges of their recovery along with the challenges of everyday life. The North Haven truck accident lawyers at Carter Mario Law Firm routinely provide advice to injured victims.

Is There a Time Limit to File a Truck Accident Claim in North Haven?

Yes. Pursuant to 52-584, the statute of limitation for personal injury claims in Connecticut is two years. This means you must file a lawsuit against the truck driver within two years of the collision, or else you forfeit your right to sue.

Is it Possible to Sue a Truck Driver or Company for an Accident?

You may be able to sue both. You could sue the truck company if the truck driver was an employee under a theory of respondeat superior. Additionally, you can sue the truck driver for negligence.
