Trucking Accident Lawyers Who Will Fight For Your Recovery

We represent survivors of truck accidents, and we help them aggressively pursue the compensation that they deserve. If you have lost a loved one to a serious truck accident, our law firm can help you get justice.

Trucking companies are notoriously difficult to deal with, and they will vigorously fight liability claims. When a truck driver's or trucking company's negligence or recklessness has caused serious injuries and vehicle damages, the guilty party needs to be held accountable, and only a determined, experienced personal injury lawyer can effectively lead that charge.

At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, our Southington-based attorneys handle trucking accident cases from Hartford to Waterbury. If you or a loved one was injured in Connecticut, we can represent your case and fight for your best interests. With over 25 years of experience, we have handled hundreds of motor vehicle accident cases involving incidents on major interstates (I-691, I-84, I-95, I-91), state highways, county highways, rural roads and city streets.

Semitruck accidents often involve one gigantic vehicle weighing 60,000 pounds or more — roughly 20 times heavier than the average passenger vehicle. The smaller vehicle loses very disproportionately in any wreck.

We Fight For Your Maximum Compensation And Protect Your Rights

Tractor-trailers, semitrucks, tanker trucks, logging trucks, construction trucks and other massive vehicles are prone to rollovers, jackknifing and extended stopping distances. Negligent operation of these trucks can lead to devastating wrecks:

  • Unsecured cargo can fall and hit others on the road or cause a vehicle imbalance that results in a rollover.
  • Distracted driving (texting, cellphone use, eating, etc.) can cause rear-end collisions, sideswipes and more.
  • Speeding and other forms of reckless driving endanger everyone on the road.
  • Driver fatigue can result when drivers are encouraged to push the federally regulated limits of their driving time and time between shifts.
  • Negligent hiring of unqualified or poorly trained drivers is a disaster waiting to happen.

Driver fatigue is a contributing factor in nearly half of all truck accidents in the United States, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Every truck accident case requires serious investigation, which your insurance company is not willing to conduct.

Get An Accomplished Fighter In Your Corner

Rather than settling for a significantly reduced compensation estimate, you should consult an attorney who will independently investigate your claim, collaborate with accident and medical experts, preserve evidence before it is "lost" by the trucking company, and take your case to trial if full and fair compensation cannot be negotiated.
