Denver Trucking Accident Lawyer

Denver County 18 wheeler accident lawyers

Denver Trucking Accident Attorney Serving Colorado

When a passenger car or truck, which typically weighs around 4,000 pounds, is directly involved in an accident with an 80,000-pound 18-wheeler or big rig truck, the results can be catastrophic. Commercial trucking accidents often result in serious, life-threatening, and even fatal injuries. Even though strict laws are in place to govern these large trucks on Colorado's roadways and help ensure that everyone can use the roads safely, truck accidents happen regularly. The results of these collisions can be devastating, and drivers or passengers who are injured will need to determine who was responsible and how they can receive financial compensation that will allow them to make a full recovery.

We know how to demonstrate that a collision was caused by the negligence of a truck driver and how to prove that a trucking company is liable for victims' injuries. We are not intimidated by large companies that attempt to avoid liability in these situations, and we are fully prepared to fight for the rights of victims and ensure that they will be compensated for all of the damages they have suffered.

Legal Help With Multiple Types of Truck Accidents

Colorado's roadways are often full of commercial vehicles such as semi-trucks, big rigs, and 18-wheelers on the way to destinations throughout the country. Sharing the road with these vehicles can be intimidating even at the best of times. However, when factoring in the dangers presented by steep mountain roads, volatile winter weather conditions, and heavy traffic, this can be a recipe for potential disaster. Victims involved in truck accidents may experience multiple types of severe injuries, including back and spinal cord injuries, concussions and other traumatic brain injuries, whiplash and other neck injuries, broken bones, damage to internal organs, soft tissue injuries affecting muscles and ligaments, and a variety of other issues that can lead to a lifetime of chronic pain and disabilities. Severe accidents may even lead to the wrongful death of one or more victims.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration governs all commercial vehicles that share America's roadways, and it has put regulations in place that are meant to minimize trucking accidents. Unfortunately, these regulations are not always followed by truck drivers and their employers, thereby increasing the risks faced by other drivers and passengers, as well as motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, users of scooters, and others who share the roads. There are many causes of commercial vehicle and large truck accidents, including:

  • Driver fatigue and violations of hours of service requirements, which may cause truck drivers to fall asleep behind the wheel, nod off for short periods, or struggle with vision and coordination problems that affect their ability to control their vehicles.
  • Overloaded trucks or unsecured cargo, which may impact a truck driver's control of their vehicle or cause items to fall into the road and strike other vehicles.
  • Maintenance issues and equipment failure, which may affect multiple parts of a truck, including brakes, engines, trailer couplings, or tires.
  • Drug and alcohol use, which can significantly affect a truck driver's ability to safely operate a commercial vehicle.
  • Driver errors such as inattentiveness, distracted driving, or traffic violations, which may occur due to improper or inadequate training.

If you or a loved one were injured in a commercial truck accident, it is important to seek legal counsel immediately to determine your options for filing a personal injury claim. Our attorneys can help you determine the causes of an accident and identify the parties who were responsible for your injuries.
