Truck Accidents

Trucking Accident Attorney Colorado Springs

Collisions with tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles almost always result in very serious or fatal injuries to other motorists on the road. These cases must always be handled by an experienced Colorado Springs trucking accident attorney who has the backing of a law firm with the resources to battle some of the nation’s largest commercial insurance companies and their law firms. 

Anyone involved in a collision with a truck or other commercial vehicle is always best served by contacting an experienced law firm for a free and confidential consultation in the immediate aftermath of an incident. 

In recent years, a perfect storm of factors has combined to significantly increase the risks for motorists:

  • The e-commerce revolution has resulted in large numbers of delivery vehicles on sideroads, where they make frequent stops while traveling through neighborhoods that were never designed for such traffic. 
  • Weakened unions and consolidation of the industry have resulted in lower pay, prompting many veteran drivers to retire or leave the industry.
  • A nationwide shortage of nearly 100,000 truck drivers has placed more demand on existing drivers, and prompted trucking companies to do more with less, often by reducing maintenance or skirting safety regulations designed to limit the amount of time a driver spends behind the wheel. 
  • Novice drivers are increasingly trained by large trucking companies, which safety advocates contend has resulted in new drivers hitting the road with substandard training and experience. 
  • Supply chain disruptions caused by the coronavirus and other factors have resulted in increased demand on an already stressed system. 

Trucking Collision Injury Claims 

Personal injury and wrongful death claims involving tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles are among the most complex cases a Colorado Springs law firm can handle for a host of reasons: 

  • Trucking companies use a range of tactics to limit their liability, including hiring drivers as independent contractors, leasing trucks and trailers, contracting an outside vendor for maintenance, and using Limited Liability Corporations and other legal tactics to reduce their exposure to personal injury and wrongful death claims.
  • Commercial insurers are the nation’s most wealthy and powerful insurance companies, and have extensive experience in fighting claims, as well as nearly unlimited resources, including some of the nation’s largest and most experienced legal defense firms. 
  • Commercial trucking companies and their drivers are governed by both state and federal law, including Hours of Service rules and other regulations administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Your chosen Colorado Springs trucking accident lawyer must have significant experience in both areas of law. 
  • Very serious and fatal injuries typically result. Your law firm must have access to leading medical professionals fully capable of determining the extent of your injuries, as well as the likelihood of future medical complications and the long-term financial consequences of your collision, including disabilities and/or reduced quality of life.
