Truck accidents: Standing up against trucking companies

Commercial vehicle accidents may result in catastrophic injuries, especially when a large tractor-trailer collides with a small personal automobile. Most of these smaller vehicles are no match for the sheer size and weight of a semi. When negligence of any kind is a factor in these truck accidents, Connecticut victims and their families will face many decisions. One such decision involves choosing who to target when pursuing compensation for injuries.

Truck insurance policy limits correlate with the danger they pose

If you have any doubts about how truck accidents compare to automobile ones, then all you have to do is to ask a first responder about the difference between the two. They'll likely tell you that crashes where a truck collides with a passenger vehicle are particularly catastrophic. Victims who survive them often endure long recovery times while others die. Fortunately, compensation is available no matter what the outcome.

Rear-end truck crashes are completely preventable

Data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that 4,300 individuals lost their lives in crashes with tractor-trailers in 2016 alone. This marked a 28 percent increase over those who died in similar crashes in 2009. Some traffic safety advocacy groups argue that this increase in fatal truck crashes is indicative of the federal government's failure to change trucking regulations in recent years.
