Types of Motor Vehicle Crashes and Collisions

Jim knows the unique considerations of these types of cases, and is prepared to help in a variety of claims, including:

  • Car collisions and crashes: Car wrecks are some of the most common collisions that occur on Connecticut roadways. They can leave you severe, debilitating injuries that will affect the rest of your life.
  • Truck collisions and crashes: Because of their sheer weight and size, eighteen wheelers and other large commercial trucks are usually involved in the most devastating wrecks in America. In addition, determining liability can be more complex, potentially involving truck drivers, maintenance crews and trucking companies.
  • Motorcycle collisions and crashes: While riding a motorcycle is an exhilarating experience, wrecks can occur, and the results are often catastrophic. More times than not, the crash is the fault of another reckless or careless driver.
  • Bus collisions and crashes: Thousands of people depend on the public transportation every day to get to work, school and other daily activities. With so many buses traveling along Connecticut roadways, collisions occur frequently.
  • Bicycle crashes: Bicycle accidents have two collision points for cyclists: the vehicle and the ground. Depending on your speed at the moment of impact, these collision points can cause serious permanent damage.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Thousands of people are injured every year for the seemingly harmless act of crossing the street. Anyone can be the victim of a pedestrian accident, but the greatest number of fatalities involve young children and the elderly.

Consequences of a Motor Vehicle Wreck

Although no two wrecks are identical, the common element in serious crashes is that they dramatically and negatively alter the lives of those who are injured in them. The long-term consequences of motor vehicle-related injuries affect victims physically, financially and emotionally.

If you’ve been hurt in a collision, you may be facing:

  • Time away from work that you and your family can’t afford
  • Staggering medical bills
  • A loss of physical mobility
  • Pain and suffering

In the most tragic cases, lives are lost. If you lost a loved one in a wreck due to another driver’s reckless, careless or negligent actions, you may be eligible for compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
