Truck Accidents

With three major and several minor trucking routes crisscrossing the state of Connecticut, residents are involved in hundreds of truck accidents each year, often resulting in serious injury or death.  The attorneys Cooper Sevillano have significant experience representing clients who have been injured in trucking accidents and have recovered millions of dollars in damages for such clients:

 

  • For example, our attorneys recovered $1.2 million dollars* for a plaintiff who was rear-ended by a tractor trailer on Interstate 95.  He was severely injured suffering from a lacerated intestine, numerous spinal injuries, and cognitive difficulties.

 

  • Our attorneys also obtained a confidential settlement well in excess of $500,000* in a wrongful death case on behalf of the estate of a woman killed after being rear-ended by a tractor-trailer truck on Interstate 95.

Accidents with commercial trucks are often more complex than other car accidents.  There may be many responsible parties and multiple sources of recovery.  We at Cooper Sevillano have specialized knowledge of the state and federal regulations governing commercial truckers which gives us an advantage in handling your claim.  Truck accidents may be caused by driver fatigue, alcohol or drug use, lack of driver training, schedule overload leading to speeding, failure to adapt to poor driving conditions, and poor vehicle maintenance or defective brakes or tires.  We will investigate all avenues of recovery including from the driver, his employer, the truck’s owner and anyone responsible for the truck’s maintenance.

 

Claims Handled on a Contingency Basis

 

Remember that all of our cases are handled on a contingency-fee basis which means we are only paid when we win a case and recover money for our clients.  If you or someone you love has been injured by an 18-wheeler or other commercial vehicle, or if a loved one has been killed in such an accident, please don’t hesitate to call us for a free, no obligation, confidential consultation at (203) 366-0660 or email us at info@coopersevillano.com
