Proving liability in a Connecticut truck accident

Each year, a number of people are seriously injured or killed in Connecticut accidents involving commercial trucks or other commercial vehicles. If your or your loved one has suffered a serious injury in such a collision, you may find that the trucking company and its insurer may fight to keep from paying you the damages that you should receive.

In order to prove your claim, you might need to get the help of several different types of professionals. In many truck accident cases, people need to hire accident reconstruction experts, investigators and medical experts to prove the truck driver’s liability as well as the extent of their injuries and losses.

In many cases, truck accidents may be caused by such things as driver distraction, truck driver fatigue and other forms of negligent driving behavior. Others might be the result of improper maintenance. You might need to secure copies of the truck driver’s log books, maintenance records and other documents to identify problems that may have led to your accident. In order to prevail, you will need to prove that the truck driver or the trucking company was negligent and that the negligence caused the accident and your resulting losses and injuries.
