If you do not select Gordon, Elias & Seely as your truck accident lawyers, you could lose twice.

An automobile will never win in an accident with a 18-wheel truck. Even worse, you could sustain serious and life-threatening injuries because of negligence. An insurance company may want to settle quickly. Resist that temptation. Don't make that mistake. Retaining dedicated truck accident attorneys may mean the difference of receiving tens of thousands of dollars or millions of dollars.

Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Liable for Your Injuries

Shortcuts amount to negligence that results in injuries. Truck drivers may feel the pressure from their employers, but that is no excuse for shortcuts that take the form of excessive time on the road with few, if any breaks. By law, a trucking company can be held liable for the negligence of its drivers.

Though there are many streets, roads, and state highways where truck accidents occur, often times they occur on Interstates such as I-84, I-691, I-91, I-95, I-395, or other major truck routes like US 7, US 202, US 44, US 1, US 6 and other state routes that include 41, 126, 63, 67, 317, 47, 34, 58, 59, 33, 35, 37, 104, 68, 10, 17, 80, 77, 79, 81, 99, 66, 16, 85, 156, 2, 165, 164, 49, 138, 14, 101, 12, 198, 197, 169, 190, 159, 8, Berlin Turnpike, Gold Star, Wilbur Cross, John D.

When Safe Truck Driving is Not a Priority

It does not matter what kind of truck is involved in your accident. They can include:

  • Tanker Trucks - Oilfield Trucks- Pipe Haulers- Chemical Trucks and other trucks with trailers carrying hazardous materials
  • Slow Moving - Log Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Dump Trucks, Cement Trucks, Gravel Trucks and Construction Zone Trucks entering and exiting a highway construction zone, Wide-Load Convoys, Bulldozers, Farm Equipment and slow moving Paving Equipment
  • Freight Liners, UPS, DHL, Fed-Ex, U-Haul, Mayflower and other van lines
  • Shuttle Bus, Vacation Bus, Tour Bus, and Greyhound Buses
  • Casino Buses going to and from the Mohegan Sun or the Foxwoods are constantly having collisions
  • Most all other 18-wheeler, Big-Rig, Flatbeds, Tractor/Trailer combinations or any type truck that involves a pre-trip inspection.

The Need for Compensation That Reflects Your Injuries

The difference in size of cash settlements in commercial truck cases are potentially much larger than auto to auto accidents is due to the severity of the injuries and the size of the insurance policy. Your personal auto insurance is sometimes as low as the Connecticut state mandatory minimum limits require which is $20,000.00. A commercial truck carries insurance coverage with much higher limits. That way, you can be fairly and fully compensated when the driver is negligent.
