Denver Truck Accident Lawyers
Denver is the economic hub of Colorado and acts as one of the major crossroads for shipments through the Rockies. Tractor trailers are common on narrow city roads and congested interstates. With so much shipping traffic in the area, truck accidents are a common and deadly hazard in the Denver metro area. To illustrate how deadly these crashes can be, CBS News Colorado reported on July 2022 that one person was killed when a semi-truck rolled over on the 6th Ave ramp at I-25 in Denver. This is just one sample of dozens of catastrophic truck crashes that happen every year in Denver.

We thoroughly examine each case to determine all the liable parties and what caused the accident.

Maybe the shipping company that loaded up the truck before it departed on its journey is also liable.
Truck accidents are complicated, sometimes with multiple at-fault parties. To ensure your highest settlement value, we can pursue compensation from every responsible party or their insurance carrier.
Parties we may pursue include:
- Tractor-trailer operator
- Third-party driver
- Trucking company
- Truck mechanic
- Truck part manufacturer
- The Shipping Company
- Any company who helped or was in control of loading the trailer
Once we determine who is responsible, we can submit a demand letter for costs associated with your injuries. Negotiations with insurance companies can take months. While we actively pursue your settlement, we can also file a personal injury lawsuit within the state’s 3-year statute of limitations, CO Rev Stat § 13-80-101.Costs You Can Claim in a Denver Truck Collision Case
