Lawyers For Delivery Truck Accidents

Drivers of delivery trucks are under pressure to make their deliveries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, this leads some drivers to speed, run red lights and take other risks that endanger others.

For more than two decades, the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke has represented people who have been injured in accidents involving commercial vehicles such as delivery trucks and semi trucks. With offices in Stratford, Shelton , our attorneys represent clients throughout the Greater Bridgeport area.

Holding Commercial Drivers And Their Employers Accountable

Delivery truck drivers are required to follow the rules of the road. In addition, commercial vehicles may be subject to safety regulations that other vehicles are not. For example, in Connecticut trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds are subject to federal motor carrier regulations, including:

  • Hours-of-service laws to help prevent accidents caused by driver fatigue
  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Driver qualification
  • Size and weight laws
  • Safety and equipment checks

Whenever a delivery truck is involved in an accident, our lawyers will act promptly to collect and preserve evidence of safety violations. We will obtain background information about the driver to determine if her or she:

  • Has a record of motor vehicle violations such as speeding
  • Has been involved in accidents in the past
  • Has a record of alcohol and/or drug use
  • Was properly rested

When delivery truck drivers break the law, it is the rest of us who pay the price. Our job is to ensure you recover the maximum compensation from the trucking company and its insurance company for everything you have lost.
