Causes of truck accidents in Connecticut

Truck driver negligence is one of the most common causes of truck accidents. Because of the long distances many truck drivers travel, truck accidents are often caused by driver fatigue or the use of drugs while driving. Because a truck can weigh up to around 80,000 lbs. with an average length of 45 to 65 feet, the simplest mistakes can mean disaster. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver negligence
  • Employer negligence
  • Dangerous or defective truck design or manufacture
  • Dangerous or defective truck parts
  • Dangerous or negligent road design or maintenance

Our high-quality personal injury lawyers provide thorough and aggressive representation to help truck accident victims recover compensation for all types of driver negligence and liability:

  • Speeding
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driver fatigue
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Failure to stop
  • Failure to yield

Depending on the circumstances, our trucking accident attorneys may also be able to hold employers liable for truck accidents, including for the negligence of their employees, for the following reasons:

  • Improperly loaded or oversized vehicles
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Negligent hiring or employee training
