Truck accidents, like all auto accidents, happen for a number of reasons. Brakes can fail, drivers may be overly tired or cargo may not be properly secured — among various other causes. In any of these and other situations, negligence on part of the truck driver or his or her employer may be to blame. In Connecticut, victims of negligent truck drivers may be able to seek compensation for any resulting damages.
Injuries suffered in a truck wreck can completely change a person’s life. They are often disabling, making it difficult or impossible for one to provide for him or herself or a family, or even to physically care for oneself. The need for life-long medical assistance can be emotionally and financially devastating.
For those who lose loved ones in trucking accidents, again, life will never be the same. Not only must surviving family members try to cope with the loss of a loved one on a emotional level, but they must figure out how this changes their economic situation as well. Unfortunately, many families struggle in a number of ways as they try to move forward following such unexpected and untimely losses.
Victims of negligent truck drivers in Connecticut — either individuals or surviving family members of deceased victims — may have legal recourse. While seeking compensation for losses sustained in a truck accident may not be a swift and easy road, with legal assistance it may be a possibility.
