Why Hiring an Attorney for a Truck Accident is a Smart Move

Filing a truck accident claim and pursuing legal action against a negligent truck driver can be complex; therefore, it is prudent to hire an experienced truck accident attorney. Colorado law allows victims to file a claim only within a certain period of time after the truck accident, so it is crucial to enlist the services of a Denver injury lawyer as soon as possible. Determining who is at-fault for a truck accident can be tricky. Truck drivers are usually performing a job-related task at the time of the accident, meaning that the driver’s employer bears a certain responsibility to the victim. It takes an especially skilled attorney to demonstrate the liability of both the driver and trucking company.

After a serious truck accident involving a tractor trailer, big rig or 18-wheeler, you need to contact an attorney who will take the time to listen to your story, assess the facts and the law, and represent you aggressively and professionally. You should not wait. Trucking companies and their insurers begin investigating a truck accident immediately – and so should you.

Truck accident cases can be quite complex. There are many rules and regulations that apply to truck drivers, which do not apply to ordinary drivers. You need an experienced trucking accident attorney who knows these regulations inside and out to handle your case and maximize your financial recovery. These cases require a highly skilled lawyer with special knowledge of laws, facts, and issues surrounding trucking accident cases. For example, trucking accident cases involve:

  • State DMV laws regarding commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) and trucking operations.
  • State and Federal laws governing truck driver training, hours, and requirements.
  • Exploring in great detail the safety record of the driver and the employer trucking company.
  • Investigating and understanding the personnel and employment records of the at-fault truck driver.
  • Investigating and understanding the trucking company’s driver hiring, training and retaining policies.
  • Knowledge of various safety requirements for truckers such as repairs and inspections.
  • Knowledge of National Transportation Highway Safety Administration regulations.
  • Knowledge of Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) regulations.
