Advocating For Victims Of Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Each year, the U.S. Department of Transportation attributes thousands of fatalities and roughly 100,000 injuries to collisions with commercial vehicles such as big rigs and other large freight carriers. Due to the extreme difference in weight, the physical damage to victims in cars is catastrophic.

At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, L.L.P., we help you take action after a crash with an 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle. We stand up to big trucking companies in Southington, Connecticut, to seek the maximum possible amount of compensation.

Holding Truckers Accountable

While you are on the phone with friends and family to tell them what happened, the driver of the commercial rig is already talking to the company's attorneys. Trucking businesses are highly skilled in limiting signs of damage almost as soon as a motor vehicle accident happens. Our lawyers do not let these practices dictate the outcome of a case. We use our own investigation to call out negligence and demonstrate how a trucker failed to exercise reasonable care, causing you injuries or the death of a loved one. Our firm vigorously represents you whether your accident was due to:

  • Excessive speed
  • Insufficient training
  • Lack of sleep
  • Mechanical failure
  • Unsafe driving techniques

We also help you recover from damages caused by a truck that jackknifed or made too wide of a turn.
