Thousands of large trucks and semis travel the highways each day. Moving at high speeds in a large vehicle, a truck driver has little room for error. Any negligence can result in devastating accidents, catastrophic injuries, and even wrongful death. Truck drivers must follow strict procedures. When they fail to do so, they must be held liable for the pain they cause.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck crash, it is crucial that you have experienced representation on your side. The trucking companies will do everything possible to avoid liability and the payout you deserve. At Jacobs & Jacobs, we understand the truck companies' tactics and how to fight them for our clients. We have the experience and knowledge needed to thoroughly and accurately investigate a truck accident. Our attorneys leverage those findings to hold the trucking companies responsible.
If you have been injured or lost someone in a trucking accident, we want to help. Contact an attorney at our New Haven office today at 203-777-2300 for an initial consultation. We are committed to helping you and your family get through this.
