New Haven Truck Accident Lawyer
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has enacted a set of regulations that govern the way truck drivers do their jobs. These regulations were developed specifically to ensure their safety and the safety of everyone sharing the road with them. Failure to follow these regulations can result in serious accidents that lead to severe injuries.
Negligent truck drivers, their employers and the insurance companies that carry their policies will go to great lengths to avoid their responsibility in these matters. If you have been injured in an accident involving any kind of commercial truck, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified Connecticut personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You have an advocate at the Law Office of Carl A. Secola, Jr., LLC.
I was the attorney for the estate of Fred Held, one of the victims who was killed and included in the case of Thomas Dugas, et al. v. Northeast Carriers, et al. which resulted in a verdict that totaled $15,795,600.The case involved a tanker truck driver who was estimated to be traveling approximately 75 miles per hour on I-95. The driver jumped the median near the I-395 interchange and caused an accident that resulted in multiple deaths and numerous severe injuries.
Accidents involving tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles can be very difficult matters to prove. There are frequently multiple parties who can share in the liability for the accident, and each one will attempt to place the blame on another. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the driver, the trucking company, the maintenance company, the truck manufacturer and others can all be held partially liable in these cases.
I have been practicing personal injury law in Connecticut for nearly 30 years. I know how to investigate truck accidents and uncover the truth. I will hold the negligent parties accountable and seek maximum compensation on your behalf. When appropriate, I will bring in accident reconstructionists, medical experts, life-planning specialists, economists and others who can help us present a more compelling case in pursuit of maximum compensation.
