In this particular case, Steve’s client was an over-the-road trucker who was involved in a collision in the state of Connecticut.
Steve’s client’s semi-tractor/trailer was struck from behind by another semi-tractor/trailer in rush hour traffic. The trucking company was not convinced Steve’s client’s injuries were due to the accident. After filing a lawsuit in Federal Court, the case settled for $150,000 without a trial.
Taking on trucking companies & insurers after a crash
Trucking companies are highly responsive after a trucking accident, as there are many thousands of dollars on the line. By the time you’ve been transported from the scene of the truck accident, they may already have a team at the site to collect or potentially destroy evidence to hurt your case against them and protect their own interests.
Victims of trucking accidents need an experienced truck accident lawyer intimately familiar with federal motor carrier safety (FMCSA) regulations to fight for your rights and secure the settlement you deserve.
