How Can a Boulder Truck Accident Lawyer Help Me?

Negotiating a truck accident claim or litigating a truck accident lawsuit is different than dealing with a car accident. With a car accident proving fault and determining liability are straightforward tasks. This is not true with commercial truck accidents.

A skilled commercial truck accident attorney is experienced in handling the complexities of truck accidents, including:

  • Collecting evidence from the accident such as the truck’s black box, driver cell phone records, truck maintenance, and safety record, driver logs, and company training records
  • Hiring expert witnesses like medical experts and accident reconstructionists to review the evidence and testify if needed
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Assessing your medical and financial damages to calculate an appropriate amount of compensation for current and future needs
  • Settling your claim in negotiations or proceeding with a lawsuit

It is imperative to speak with us immediately following your truck accident. This allows our lawyers to begin building your truck accident claim. The sooner we start your claim, the faster we can request damages on your behalf.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

There are numerous causes of truck accidents in the Boulder area. For instance, many commercial truck drivers must keep tight schedules to deliver their loads on time. This can cause driver fatigue and pressure to speed or neglect scheduled maintenance.

Other reasons for commercial truck accidents are:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Truck defects or defective truck parts
  • Improperly performed maintenance
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Cargo that is overweight
  • Speeding
  • Not checking blind spots
  • Poorly trained truck drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to follow traffic signals

Unlike passenger vehicles, commercial trucks operate under federal guidelines, and multiple parties share the responsibility for keeping commercial trucking underway and commercial truck drivers on the road. Liability in a truck accident may rest upon one or many of the following:

  • The truck driver
  • Another driver on the road
  • The trucking company that employed the driver
  • Someone who maintained or repaired the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck or the truck’s parts

After a truck accident, and only if it is safe, write down or take photos of the truck driver’s personal information, company information, and insurance information for future reference.

Truck Accident Injuries

While truck accident injuries vary, they are nearly always severe. Truck accidents regularly prevent victims from reassuming their lives and can include the following:

  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Death

Compensation in a truck accident depends upon the kind of injuries the victim received and the extent of those injuries. To learn more about compensation in a truck accident claim or filing a truck accident lawsuit, contact our firm today.
