Broomfield Truck Accident Lawyers

Trucking Companies are In for a Fight

It is practically guaranteed that trucking companies and their insurers will not want to play fair after you are hurt in a truck accident. They know that your injuries and financial damages are likely severe, so they will want to do anything they can to avoid admitting liability or paying you any compensation. To balance the legal playing field, allow our highly experienced Broomfield truck accident attorneys of Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. to represent you.

We have decades of combined legal experience to put to good use for our clients. If the opposition to your claim wants to use sly tactics to dodge liability, then we will be already two steps ahead of them with convincing evidence and arguments formed in your name. Securing justice and compensation is our passion, and we are certain it will show the moment you hire us to work on your claim.

Maximizing the Damages in Your Claim

Truck accidents are notorious among medical and legal professionals for causing severe, catastrophic, life-changing, and fatal injuries. Brain damage, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more can all be caused in a tractor-trailer wreck. If you have suffered a severe injury, then you are going to need serious compensation to return your life to something that resembles “normal.”

Damages that might be available in your claim are:

In a separate vehicle damage claim, you can demand payments for vehicle repair or replacement costs that were not provided through all relevant auto insurance policies. Our legal team can assist you with this claim as well.

Can You Sue the Trucking Company, Too?

The truck driver is the party who is most likely answerable for your injuries after a truck accident. Does that mean you will only be able to file a claim against them? Not necessarily, thanks to the legal rule of respondeat superior. This rule makes employers liable for the harm caused by their employees and contracted workers in many situations, including most truck accidents.

Using respondeat superior, we might be able to file a claim against the trucking company that hired or contracted the truck driver who hit you. Trucking companies will have a larger insurance policy than the trucker, so you will be more likely to receive an adequate amount of compensation in this way. The one thing to remember is that no matter how many defendants are responsible for your accident, like cargo crews and truck mechanics, too, our attorneys will be more than capable of managing your claim thoroughly.

Begin Your Claim Today – Don’t Delay

Truck accident statutes of limitations can sneak up on you. Colorado only gives you a two-year statute of limitations before your claim will be rejected automatically when filed. Suing a municipal or governmental entity for a trucking accident has an even shorter statute of limitations of just 180 days.
