Connecticut Truck Accident Lawyer Tim Moynahan
Personal Injury: Truck Accidents
Waterbury Truck & Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyer
As we know, truck, tractor trailer accidents often result in serious life threatening injuries and death. If you or a loved one are hurt or killed as the result of the negligent operation of a truck or tractor trailer, select an attorney who knows the federal and state laws which regulate the trucking industry. These laws define the amount of time in which a trucker may drive, when he should take short breaks and when he has to stop and take a long break. Overloaded trucks, distracted drivers (e.g. by cell phone use) mirrors with blind spots which violate the law, are some of the causes of truck accidents. A lawyer will also find out if proper logs were maintained and if the driver was overly tired or violating other regulations which contributed to the accident causing injury or death.
It is always essential that you contact a truck, tractor trailer accident attorney such as myself for a free consultation. Do so as soon as possible as there is a statute of limitations on these accidents and the time to take action is limited.
