Hartford Truck Accident Attorney

Thousands of semi and big-rig truck accidents occur every year, leading to injuries and fatalities, high-dollar insurance claims, and long traffic delays while the wreckage is cleared. Over the last decade, the number of injuries and fatalities caused by truck accidents has steadily increased. 2016 saw a 27% increase over 2009 in all truck accident fatalities, and a 47% increase in fatalities of truck drivers.

As the state capital and a major industrial and commercial hub, Hartford has seen a significant increase in semi- and big-rig truck traffic over the last decade, and truck accidents have become all too frequent here. The most common type of truck accidents in Connecticut are those in which the truck jackknifes and causes a collision. With weight up to twenty times greater than the average passenger vehicle, semi-trucks and big rigs fare the best in such collisions, and it is unfortunately the case that people in passenger vehicles account for the majority of truck-accident fatalities.

If you or a loved one have been injured because of a truck accident, an experienced Hartford truck accident lawyer can help discuss your rights and your options for bringing a claim against the trucking company at fault. At Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, our knowledgeable and compassionate team members are here to listen to you and advise you on how to proceed with your truck accident claim. You don’t have to deal with the aftermath of this accident alone, so call us at (860) 722-9923, chat with us live, or fill out the free case evaluation form to the right.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer to Handle My Truck Accident Claim?

You need an attorney who is experienced in handling truck accident cases and will know how to investigate your case, collect all the relevant evidence, and build the most convincing case on your behalf. Truck accidents are exceptionally complicated claims, because there is a much greater volume of evidence to sift through, and the potential for multiple liable parties.

You may know, for example, that your accident was caused because the truck driver fell asleep at the wheel, but without a lawyer to investigate, you may not realize that their employer forced them to work illegal hours, preventing them from getting the rest they needed and causing them to fall asleep. There are many cases where an accident caused by apparent driver negligence was actually caused by the negligence of a trucking company, truck manufacturer, mechanic, or governmental agency. An experienced lawyer can conduct a thorough investigation of your case to identify all the liable parties and win you the highest possible amount of compensation.

Why Choose Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers?

At Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, our experienced truck accident attorneys are committed to fighting for your rights and for fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

We not only cover every legal aspect of the case, but we also make sure that our clients are taken care of during the process. If you engage our services, we will remind you of upcoming medical appointments, and make sure that you have transportation to get to them.

Truck Accident Claims

Truck accident injuries often lead to death, either upon impact or a short time after the accident. Survivors of truck accidents usually have serious and in many cases life-changing injuries that result in long-term health issues and expensive medical bills. Many truck accident victims require extensive medical care as a result of their injuries, sometimes for the rest of their lives.

The most common types of truck accident injuries are:

  • Neck and back injuries – These can include muscle tears in the neck, whiplash, and compressed or ruptured discs in the spine. These injuries often delay victims from returning to day-to-day activities and work.
  • Broken bones – These may include bones in the face, fingers, wrists, arms, ribs, legs, ankles, heels, and toes, due to the high impact of truck accidents.
  • Head trauma – Traumatic brain injuries can occur from the ferocity of the collision or from hitting the head on some part of the car in a second impact. Many times, TBIs are so severe that comas and even death may occur. Even those truck accident victims who survive their TBIs may find their lives permanently altered as a result, sometimes so severely that they require constant medical care.
  • Spinal cord injuries – Because of the spine’s importance to mobility and motor function, injuries to the spinal cord can be especially debilitating. In severe cases, partial or full paralysis is possible.
  • Internal injuries – The so-called “third impact” — in which the force of a vehicular impact causes internal organs to collide inside the body — can result in internal injuries. These injuries can be especially serious, as they require immediate expert medical attention at a hospital.

If you have suffered any of these or other injuries after a truck accident of any kind, Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you pursue financial compensation against the at fault parties. This compensation may include funds to pay for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and rehabilitation, as well as compensation for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
