Injured by a Commercial Vehicle in Connecticut?

Most drivers are familiar with what a fender bender is and the possibility of accidents involving semitrucks and 18-wheelers. But what should you do if you have been hurt in an accident involving a commercial vehicle? It is important to discuss your options with an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

At Tremont Sheldon P.C. in Bridgeport, we represent injury victims throughout Connecticut who were harmed as a result of a commercial vehicle accident. This includes commercial vehicles such as:

  • Taxicabs
  • Moving vans
  • Delivery trucks
  • Cube trucks
  • Courier cars

We fight aggressively for you, building a strong case to maximize recovery. Truck drivers are held to a high standard of safety and conduct, which is reflected in stringent laws against texting and driving. Accident victims are often left with injuries that go beyond physical damage, with many of them scared to drive on the road and petrified of being in a lane next to a truck. We fight to make sure these victims are compensated for the full damages they have suffered and continue to suffer.

Protect Your Potential Claim

We understand that at the time of the accident, you may have gotten out, exchanged information and went on your way. But injuries are not always apparent right away after an accident. You could start having neck or back problems in the weeks to come that require costly medical procedures. It is important to get checked out by a doctor and, if you are experiencing symptoms, speak to our personal injury lawyers about your legal options.

We are here to do what the insurance company is not in the business of doing: helping you. Speak to one of our attorneys today to learn more about your rights after an accident. Call 203-212-9075 or contact us online to arrange a free consultation.
