Our Connecticut Truck Accident Attorneys Help You Recover Damages
When corporations and drivers of tractor-tailors and commercial vans act negligently
Even though the trucking industry is highly regulated to protect the public, hundreds of Americans die in truck accidents each year. Many more are catastrophically injured. The total damage to the victims and their families is incalculable. Many of these accidents could be avoided if the trucking companies and their drivers simply obeyed the laws. The Pickel Law Firm, LLC is composed of dedicated personal injury attorneys who feel passionate about helping you and your family through the difficult time following your truck crash. With more than 65 years of combined experience, our team has the resources and knowledge to prove that negligence caused your truck accident on the Connecticut roadway.
Responsibility of corporate trucking giants
Many trucking companies are owned and operated by large corporations that have the financial resources to put safe vehicles and drivers on the road. Yet, even corporations that are hauling toxic and volatile substances often put the public in jeopardy by cutting corners on fleet maintenance and driver training.
Supervisors may look the other way when their distracted drivers talk on cell phones, text or eat while dangerously piloting large trucks down the highways of Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport, Greenwich, Darien, Stratford and our surrounding communities. These corporate giants may even pressure their drivers to act negligently — including speeding, taking stimulants and foregoing sleep in violation of Connecticut’s laws — to transport more goods in fewer trips.
Negating the corporations and their insurance companies’ head start
Trucking companies and their insurers know what to do after an accident occurs. They do not waste any time taking action to limit their liability — often arriving at the scene to investigate in only a matter of hours. Their goal is to gather evidence that they can use to avoid responsibility completely or, failing that, to get you to agree to a settlement as quickly and as cheaply as possible.
Our managing attorney, Alan Scott Pickel, began his career defending insurance companies against plaintiffs who had been injured in motor vehicle accidents. From this valuable experience, we know how insurance companies operate and what they are willing to do to get what they want. Our lawyers successfully counter their actions to ensure that justice is served in your case.
