  Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney

In Colorado alone, there were almost 70 fatalities involving large trucks and almost 2000 non-fatal crashes in 2004. Due to their size, commercial vehicles pose a greater threat to those automobiles occupying the roadways with them. When an accident does occur, the results can be devastating, causing severe and debilitating injuries to all those involved.

A commercial vehicle is any vehicle used for transporting products for a business purpose. Common types of commercial trucks include moving vans, delivery trucks, tow trucks, UPS trucks and eighteen-wheelers. The Denver area is a notoriously dangerous area as many different types of commercial vehicles occupy the highways, often under dangerous weather conditions. In addition to dangerous weather and roadway conditions, commercial truck drivers can often be overworked, sleep-deprived or pressured to make deliveries on time, all of which can lead to serious accidents. There are many causes of commercial truck accidents, including:

  • Improper Maintenance of Commercial Vehicles
  • Driver error
  • Improper Training
  • Driver Sleep Deprivation
  • Alcohol or Drug Abuse
  • Overworked or Improper Work Hours
  • Cell phone Use
  • Speeding or Aggressive Driving

If you or someone you love was injured in an accident with a commercial vehicle, contact a commercial trucking personal injury attorney immediately. There may be many people responsible for the accident, including the driver, the company or corporation, the trucking company and possibly the manufacturer of the truck. Your trucking accident injury attorney will make sure that all areas of your case are examined to determine how much compensation you are entitled to. Injuries sustained after an accident with a commercial truck can be devastating and lead to a lifetime of complications and disabilities. Make sure that you and your family receive all the compensation you need to pay medical bills and account for future lost wages and pain and suffering.

Large corporations and their insurance companies will notoriously want to make a quick settlement. They may even offer you a large sum of money, in exchange for not seeking legal help. The majority of these settlements and seek to protect the company alone, and are merely a fraction of what you may be entitled to. In this situation, you will need a qualified personal injury attorney who is skilled at handling commercial trucking accidents. Your attorney will work with insurance companies, medical doctors and law enforcement to protect your rights and give you the peace of mind you need to recover.
