Connecticut residents like you have a lot to lose in a crash with a commercial truck. Not only will you be the one sustaining the most damage, but you will also be up against the defense of the trucking company. Loughlin Fitzgerald, P.C., is here to help guide you through these tough times as you seek fair compensation.
Trucking companies have a lot of power behind them, and this translates to a lot of hurdles for you when you’re seeking compensation for your injuries. Companies often want to avoid having to pay large sums of money. They also don’t want the black spot of being responsible for a crash on their record, especially if serious or even lethal injuries had occurred.
Not only could both federal and state agencies become involved post-crash, but the investigators that work for trucking companies can also be hard to deal with. They’re extremely prompt, often arriving at a scene to investigate even before the law enforcement has fully cleared out yet. They can also employ aggressive tactics in an attempt to get you to sign away your rights to fair compensation or agree to something that you might not necessarily understand in full.
