Fight Negligence with Our Trusted Attorneys in Waterbury, Danbury & Norwalk

Due to the large size and weight of 18-wheelers, even a minor mistake on the part of the driver or the trucking company can lead to devastating injuries and even wrongful death. If you have been injured in a truck accident, don’t leave yourself without defense against the large trucking companies and insurance companies who will become involved in your case. Unfortunately, these companies are notorious for trying to get you to take the least amount of compensation possible.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Trucking Accident?

Determining who can be held liable for a trucking accident depends largely on the facts of the case and it might not be as simple as holding the actual driver responsible for everything.

Different parties that can be held liable in a truck accident case:

  • Truck driver: In some cases, the truck driver is an independent contractor and may be able to be held liable for distracted driving, drunk driving, and other negligent behaviors.
  • Trucking company: The trucking company is responsible to enforce thorough training, maintenance, repair, and other standards to prevent accidents from happening.

Our attorneys can investigate your case and help determine who is liable for your injuries.

Can I Obtain Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault?

Connecticut has a comparative fault rule. This means that if the jury rules that the accident is partially your fault, you may get a percentage deducted from your compensation. For example, if it was determined that your compensation was $100,000, but that you were 20% at fault, you would receive $80,000. These numbers are purely hypothetical and may not reflect actual case results.
