Wrongful Death From Truck Accidents

Big rig, commercial trucks travel hundreds of miles a day throughout Connecticut to deliver goods within the state at all times of day and night. Because of this, accidents can happen and often occur without prior warning. Commercial trucks including 18 wheelers / semi tractor trailers are heavy, which means accident victims traveling in compact cars, SUV's, motorcycles and other passenger vehicles often suffer serious injuries or death. The following is an overview of how personal injury law is designed to help the families of those killed in truck accidents obtain compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit
