Longmont Truck Accident Lawyers
Leave Everything Up to Us
Being involved in a truck accident can be an incredibly traumatic and life-altering experience, leaving victims and their families with physical, emotional, and financial burdens.
The average truck accident is capable of causing catastrophic injuries to anyone in a smaller passenger vehicle. The larger commercial truck’s immense size and mass give it a tremendous amount of force at all speeds. A crash can cause life-changing injuries, ranging from broken bones and paralysis to brain damage.To help you focus on your recovery and well-being, the Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. team in Longmont, Colorado, offers comprehensive legal services. We will handle your truck accident claim from start to finish.
Damages we may be able to demand in your claim include the costs associated with:
- Medical treatments
- Future medical care
- Lifetime prescription medication
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- PTSD and mental anguish
If a truck accident causes a wrongful death, additional damages can be sought by the claimant or plaintiff. Burial costs, wages that the deceased likely would have earned in their life had the truck accident never happened, and the toll the death has had on their family members can all be included in the claim as further damages.

Frequent Questions About Truck Accidents
Who can be held liable in a truck accident?
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 truckers, 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.
How can I prove negligence in a truck accident?
Gather evidence such as accident reports, witness testimonies, driver logs, electronic data from the truck's onboard systems, and maintenance records. You could also hire accident reconstruction experts. This evidence is used to help establish that the defendant's actions or omissions fell below the expected standard of care.
What types of compensation can I seek in a truck accident claim?
In a truck accident claim, you may seek various types of compensation, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, physical impairment, disability or disfigurement, and sometimes punitive damages. The specific types of compensation depend on the extent of your injuries and the circumstances of the accident.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a truck accident?
The truck accident statute of limitations can sneak up on you. Colorado only gives you three years before your claim will be lost.
What if the truck driver or trucking company is denying liability?
Gather as much evidence as possible to support your claim. Working with a skilled truck accident lawyer, like the ones on the Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., will guide you through the legal process, build a strong case, and get you the money damages you deserve.
