Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Westport, Connecticut
Large, powerful vehicles like trucks can have serious consequences if they are involved in road accidents. When trucks collide with smaller vehicles many outcomes
can result including head-on collisions, rollovers, and underride accidents.
Poor conditions on the road that can blur visibility, unsafe driving practices, negligence, recklessness, mechanical problems, and drowsy drivers can all lead to truck accidents. Most trucks contain a “black box” which will record the speed of the truck before an accident happens and this information can be crucial to your claim if you have been involved in a trucking accident.
