Colorado Truck Accident Lawyers
Large trucks are more difficult to control, take longer to stop, make wider turns, and have larger blind spots than ordinary vehicles These factors significantly raise the risk of accidents. Unfortunately, when such accidents occur, occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are far more susceptible to severe and even fatal injuries.
Trucking companies have large insurance policies, which means insurers are quick to defend against personal injury claims. These companies will employ extensive resources to protect their bottom line and pay victims as little as possible.
To level the playing field, choose a proven firm capable of fighting back for the compensation you deserve. We can help you get compensated for lost wages, medical expenses, continued therapy costs, and pain and suffering.

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.
