Protecting Victims of Accidents in All Types of Transportation and Truck Driving Cases
Truck drivers are the backbone of our economy. They work long hours, drive incredible distances, and are asked to make impossible deadlines every day. But if you are hurt while doing your job, you need an experienced truck and transportation lawyer to help.
When there is an accident, truck drivers often take the blame. But at CT Injury Lawyers, we know that many times truck drivers are injured on-the-job due to negligence by an employer, customer, or another driver. At our law firm, we stand up for truckers suffering injuries and will advocate for your rights.
CT Injury Lawyers: We Understand Truck Accidents
More than 1 million over-the-road drivers are involved in a major incident each year. But the fact is, truck drivers have fewer accidents per mile driven than any other type of vehicle. The problem is that when accidents do occur, truck-related accidents result in more fatalities and serious injuries than other type of vehicles.
Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers are ready to serve if you’ve been injured in a work accident. We know that transportation workers are exposed to special risks, including:
- Loading and unloading injuries
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Falls from wet, icy, or other conditions
- Falling cargo injuries
- Chemical exposure
- Internal injuries
- Repetitive motion injuries/repetitive trauma injuries
We have helped countless truck drivers with legal help, including local delivery drivers and long-haul truck drivers. We know what you are going through and will help you get your life and, if needed, your rig back on the road.
Facing Down Insurance Companies
Insurance companies and trucking companies will frequently defend against claims in truck accidents by putting the blame on drivers. Our lawyers have worked for insurance companies, and we know how to challenge those tactics and how to prove the extent of your injury.
Getting hurt while driving is not only painful, but it makes it impossible for you to earn a living. Our truck accident lawyers know how to make a claim no matter where you are hurt, and will fight for the maximum legal benefit in any truck accident, whether on the road, in the warehouse, or garage.
And of course, you pay nothing unless your lawyer is successful in obtaining benefits for you. Call our office today if you or a loved one was involved in a truck or transportation-related incident.
Do You Have a Personal Injury Claim?
Our attorneys know that workers’ compensation insurance is not always sufficient to cover the necessary recovery from truck driving accidents. We will file all appropriate claims and, when necessary, a civil lawsuit against potential third parties for personal injury damages. Whenever necessary, our lawyers will evaluate the specific facts in your transportation-related accident to determine if a third party, such as another driver on the road, was negligent.
In a personal injury claim or lawsuit, you are entitled to recover all of the damages that you have suffered. This includes lost earnings, lost earning capacity, medical bills, future medical expenses, permanent impairment, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
