Were you in an accident with a tractor-trailer truck? Call our Waterbury truck accident lawyer now.

This is a complex type of motor vehicle accident case. There are many causes and factors that we need to investigate for you as soon as possible:

  • Rollovers
  • Drunk, intoxicated, or DUI truck drivers
  • Overloaded vehicles
  • Sleep deprived drivers
  • Distracted drivers such as texting while driving
  • Unsafe trucks
  • Trucks that have not corrected issues found during inspections

One of Attorney Bartlett’s first cases over fourteen years ago involved a tractor-trailer accident. Because of Attorney Bartlett’s hands-on experience with the total restoration of vehicles as a hobby, he was able to ask the needed technical questions about the construction and maintenance of the braking system on the truck. These questions changed the outcome of the case. You not only need someone that knows the law, but you also need someone that can challenge the other side’s experts.
