Experienced Truck And Tractor-Trailer Crash Attorney

Truck drivers and trucking companies need to be held accountable for their unique ability to cause harm to smaller passenger vehicles, especially on major highways. Driving errors that may not be significant when made by small vehicles could result in catastrophic accidents and injuries when they are made by semitrucks and 18-wheelers. The causes of truck accidents can vary, but many are related to negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company or poorly maintained equipment.

At the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz, I thoroughly investigate truck accidents to determine their causes and the liability of those involved. My firm provides experienced representation for accident victims and will pursue maximum compensation from those who are responsible for client's injuries and damages. For 25 years, I have recovered substantial verdicts and settlements for Connecticut drivers involved in truck and tractor-trailer accidents.

Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

Operating a large semitruck or other commercial vehicle requires proper training, maintenance and realistic schedules from trucking companies. The failure to meet these basic requirements can put other drivers on the road in jeopardy. Common causes of truck accidents may include:

  • Lack of proper training and experience
  • Poor driver technique, speeding or aggressive driving
  • Insufficient truck maintenance
  • Unrealistic schedules or expectations that encourage poor safety
  • Driver fatigue
  • Overweight or overloaded trucks
  • Other unsafe acts performed by commercial truck drivers

If you have been involved in a truck accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses related to the accident. By talking with a lawyer, you can better understand your options and how my firm can help you protect your rights.

The Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz also provides compassionate representation to the families of drivers and passengers who have been killed in accidents with trucks and commercial vehicles.
