Truck Accidents in Connecticut
Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. In just one year’s time in the entirety of the U.S., approximately 110,000 injuries resulted from truck accidents. These accidents happen in the blink of an eye due to reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more. Though truck drivers are expected to abide by the rules of the road at all times, this does not always occur and truck accidents continue to take place. If you have been hurt in one of these accidents, you should seek the help of a legal advocate.
