I consulted with Brooke and found her to be genuine, informative, knowledgeable and a person who would advocate for me. Her demeanor and compassion made it very evident that should I ever need further assistance, she is truly the one I would hire.”
I just want everyone to know that I had Brooke represent me after a big box firm treated me like just another paycheck like I was nothing. I’m glad I made the swap.”
Brooke gave me her cell number and usually returns my call that day or the next if I don’t reach her. Brooke is the type of lawyer I want in my corner!”

    Connecticut Truck Accident Attorneys

    Representing Truck Drivers Throughout Connecticut

    Generally speaking, you may need to file a third-party liability claim if someone other than the truck driver was responsible for the accident.

    Other parties that could be liable include:

    • Another Motorist: In many cases, truck accidents occur when truck drivers are forced to react to another motorist’s careless or reckless driving behavior. If the accident involved multiple vehicles, it’s possible that another driver than the truck driver was to blame. In this case, you may be able to seek compensation from the other liable motorist.
    • The Party Responsible for Truck Maintenance or Repairs: While many truck drivers are responsible for conducting routine inspections and maintenance on their own vehicles, a trucking company may hire a third-party inspection/maintenance company to do this in some cases. If that entity failed to properly inspect, maintain, or fix noted problems with a vehicle, which then led to an accident, that entity could be held liable.
    • A Manufacturer: If a defective truck or truck part, such as defective tires or brakes, caused an accident, the manufacturer could be held liable for any resulting injuries and damages. Manufacturers have a duty to create and distribute vehicles and vehicle parts that work properly and do not pose an unreasonable risk to others.
    • The Cargo Loader: If a third party was responsible for loading a truck’s cargo, and that cargo was not properly loaded, you may be able to hold the third-party cargo loader responsible for any damages you suffered as a result. Improperly or over-loaded trucks can lead to devastating truck accidents, and those responsible can be held accountable.

    As you can see, there are many potentially liable parties apart from truck drivers and their employers. However, determining who is liable for an accident is no easy task. At Goff Law Group, we work with trucking industry experts, including accident reconstructionists, in order to determine exactly how an accident occurred and, therefore, who is liable for your damages.
