Being involved in a commercial vehicle accident can be a scary situation for a Connecticut motorist. Semis, delivery trucks, buses, tractors and other commercial vehicles are much larger than passenger vehicles, with the end result being serious injury, disability or even death. This can mean substantial medical bills as well as lost wages. These two situations combined can mean financial disaster. Fortunately, with the right legal team, you can receive the compensation you need for all the damages incurred.

Many Connecticut motorists may think that DUI laws are strict enough. What they may not know is that the laws for truck drivers and other commercial motorists are even harsher. Why is this? Because commercial vehicles often carry valuable, heavy or fragile loads, whether they consist of lumber, hazardous chemicals, cars or people. Therefore, if an accident were to occur, the stakes would be very high, and the result could be serious injury, permanent disability or even death.
