Truck Accidents Archives

Trucks can bring destruction far from the roadway

When we think about automobile accidents, we generally imagine scenes of destruction on the road, but not all accidents are confined to roads. This can be especially true of truck accidents. Because trucks are so large, they can take devastation off of the roadway and into surrounding areas and buildings.

Man receives $1.5 million settlement after truck accident

Many people think of body cameras worn by police officers as part of a larger measure to hold officers accountable for conduct. While this is certainly a component of their use, in many cases they provide valuable evidence to establish liability, especially when officers respond to an injury accident. Body camera footage proved to be quite useful in helping a man receive a strong settlement after a truck struck him while he was riding a motorcycle.

To settle or not to settle

If you've been injured in an accident involving a large truck, there is a likelihood that the liable parties will seek to settle your personal injury claim out of court. Settling out of court in a personal injury case has both advantages and potential disadvantages, and should be approached soberly.

Officer injured in in multi-car collision in construction zone

The innate danger that those who choose to serve their communities put themselves in was brought into stark relief recently when a drunk driver injured a long-serving state police trooper and damaged several vehicles in an already complicated construction zone.

Impaired drivers can cause deadly car vs. truck accidents

Crashes involving drivers who are under the influence are some of the most preventable since all a driver typically has to do is not get behind the wheel after drinking or taking drugs. Sadly, that does not stop many people here in Connecticut and across the country from doing so anyway. Numerous car vs. truck accidents that occur each year are caused by impaired drivers.

Injuries suffered in truck accidents can cause disorientation

In the aftermath of an accident, there is no way to predict how the people involved will react. Depending on the circumstances and their injuries, they could cry, scream or become unruly. This can present a challenge for Connecticut's emergency personnel who respond to car and truck accidents. How first responders deal with these situations might not be helpful, and in some cases, could further injure a victim.

Victims of truck accidents often touched many lives

Fatal accidents in Connecticut often affect the lives of many people beyond the victims and the families involved. Victims of truck accidents often touched many lives -- some without even knowing it. Entire communities may mourn the loss of those whose lives were cut short by such tragedies.

Truck accidents must be investigated thoroughly for liability

Connecticut drivers are nearly always sharing the roadways with 18-wheelers. Most drivers have a healthy fear of big rigs due to their size and weight, which keeps motorists alert while in the proximity of these massive vehicles. Unfortunately, even the most diligent drivers can become the victims of truck accidents.

Determining responsibility in some truck accidents is complex

Semi-truck drivers are required to go through extensive training before going onto public roadways. Yet, Connecticut residents can rent something like a U-Haul truck without any training other than a normal driver's license, which can lead to truck accidents. These larger vehicles require a different driving style than a passenger vehicle, which makes it easier to make serious or deadly mistakes.
