After getting injured in a truck accident, you deserve comprehensive medical care, compensation for your lost income, and recognition of your suffering. In other words, you deserve justice. A New Haven truck accident lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers works to get you what you deserve.
Your Losses Deserve Recognition
Truck accidents take a heavy toll on your health and finances. Many of your losses could qualify for compensation from a claim or injury lawsuit. Damages you may recover include:
- Emergency services
- Burn care
- Medical equipment
- Prescription medications
- Counseling and therapy
- Long-term costs
- Lost income
No two injuries are the same, so these costs are tailored to your circumstances. For instance, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), inpatient hospital stays for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) tend to be 74 percent more costly than other injuries. We take those nuances into account when fighting for reimbursement.
We take the same approach when arguing for your lost income. We make sure even your side gigs are included when identifying lost revenue. From your regular salary to your extra cash from driving for Uber Eats, we consider all the ways your finances have been impacted.
Your Pain Is Personal
The aftermath of your collision has likely influenced your everyday life. To cover those consequences, we seek compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Any way your injury has impacted your hobbies, relationships, independence, or mental health can qualify you for damages. Afraid to drive after your accident? No longer able to volunteer at a charity that brought you meaning? We consider that too.
Our truck accident attorneys consult you as well as your New Haven doctors, therapists, economists, and other experts to understand the crash’s subtler ramifications. Every part of your life touched by this accident should be considered.
Your Loved One Deserves Justice
If you lost someone in a truck collision, there are many losses involved that you may be eligible to receive compensation for.
Wrongful death claims and lawsuits help cover:
- Funeral and burial costs
- End-of-life medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of companionship and guidance
Fatalities are sadly too common in truck crashes, with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reporting that most deaths are of people in passenger vehicles. If this happened to your loved one, your loss deserves acknowledgment.

- Drafting an official statement about the accident
- Compiling evidence to support your version of events
- Obtaining police reports and medical records
- Determining the statute of limitations for your lawsuit
- Identifying liable parties
While Indiana’s statute of limitations for injury lawsuits is typically two years after the crash, some factors can shorten that period or require earlier notification of a suit (IC § 34-11-2-4). Similarly, even though a truck driver hit you, other parties may be the ones held liable, such as the company that employs the driver or even a third party, like an auto parts manufacturer.
Leave these details to us. If you are at all overwhelmed by any aspect of your case, we can take over.

Possible Causes of Your New Haven Truck Accident
We always caution accident victims not to speculate or make assumptions about the crash when speaking to an insurance adjuster. This is because you probably don’t have the full picture. Our truck accident attorneys can help put together the disparate pieces of information to identify the negligent act that caused your New Haven crash. In collisions involving big rigs, that negligent action could have been:
- Drowsy driving
- Distracted driving
- Illegal or improper turns
- Failure to yield
- Wrong-way driving
- Aggressive driving
Substance abuse could have played a role in your crash, too. We can investigate this by obtaining police reports and using drug or alcohol tests as evidence of negligence.
Other negligent behaviors are commonly associated with truck accidents, such as following too closely. Large commercial trucks require more distance to come to a full stop, especially in inclement weather.
If a driver did not leave enough room or adjust their driving due to road conditions, they can be considered negligent. Several poor choices could have caused your accident. When investigating your case, we evaluate all possible factors, compiling evidence to identify what went wrong and why.
