How A Connecticut Attorney Can Help In a Truck Accident Case
It is rare to travel along Connecticut roadways and not see a commercial truck. Accidents involving these types of vehicles are a small percentage of all accidents that occur on our roadways, but they do tend to be some of the most deadly or cause the greatest permanent injuries.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration estimates 4,440 deaths caused by truck accidents in the United States in 2016. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident like this it can feel extremely overwhelming. The trucking industry is heavily regulated by both the federal and state government and this can sometimes be challenging to navigate.
An experienced attorney who has helped clients in Connecticut truck accidents, like those at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan, will work hard to provide you with the best possible legal counsel. Utilizing a experienced attorney you can determine the following:
- Legal strategy. An experienced attorney will be able to determine the best possible strategy for your case. Not all cases go to court, but sometimes, arbitration, or mediation is a better strategy.
- Establishing liability and fault. It can be difficult to establish this because there are so many rules and regulations truckers must comply with. Was the trucker drowsy, carrying too heavy a load, driving an improperly maintained vehicle?
