Recovering Compensation for Damages after a Hartford Area Auto Accident
Connecticut maintains an at-fault car insurance system. This means that to recover compensation from the other driver’s insurance company, you will need to prove that the other driver was at fault for your accident. You will also need to provide evidence of the damages that you have suffered. When you hire Stanger Stanfield Law, we work hard. We assess the strength of your claim and diligently gather evidence that supports your story and verifies your injuries.
West Hartford Truck Accident Lawyers Helping You Recover
Nearly 4,000 people died in large truck accidents in 2016. And in Connecticut, semi truck accidents were responsible for nearly 4% of all accidents.
Due to their sheer size, accidents with big rigs, 18-wheelers, and other commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) can cause serious injury.
If you were in a truck accident in Connecticut, you likely need an attorney. After a truck accident, trucking and insurance companies try to protect their assets by low-balling your settlement. A truck accident attorney will protect your best interests and even take your case to court if the settlement isn’t fair (although this rarely happens). While you focus on recovering, a truck accident lawyer will take care of your case by securing your financial future.
You can recover economic and noneconomic damages for these accidents. Economic damages cover your medical bills and lost wages during recovery while noneconomic damages account for the psychological and emotional pain and suffering as a result of the accident.
Facing a large trucking company isn’t easy to do on your own. It’s best to hire experienced Connecticut and Massachusets trucking accident lawyers.
Liability in Truck Accidents
There are many factors at play in a truck accident.
Any of the following can be held liable for the accident:
- The trucking company;
- Owner of the truck;
- The driver;
- A mechanic who worked on the truck;
- The company responsible for loading the truck;
- A designer of a motor vehicle part;
- A manufacturer of a motor vehicle part;
- Another driver.
As you can imagine, these cases are complicated–but we can help.

We want to help you get compensation to cover the costs of your medical bills, property damages, lost wages, and other actual economic expenses.

The Clock on the Statute of Limitations Is Ticking
After an auto accident, hiring an attorney and initiating the claims process as soon as possible is critical if you are injured. Even if you are still recovering from injuries or coping with psychological harm, it’s important to start right away. There is a limited amount of time you have to bring forth an auto accident lawsuit in Connecticut. If wait too long, you will be permanently barred from recovering compensation at all. The statute of limitations is two years from the date of your auto accident, as found in Title 52, Chapter 926, Section 52-584 of Connecticut code.
