Going After a Fair Outcome for a Lafayette, CO Truck Accident

Your case’s facts determine the outcome, so it’s difficult to predict how a case will proceed without an initial case review. Because of this risk, our firm offers a free consultation to help you understand your rights and the legal steps that lead to a fair outcome. Every decision you make with us will be well-informed and without pressure.

If we work together, we can help you with:

Establishing Liability

If someone else’s negligence or recklessness caused your injuries, you can seek compensation for your losses. Your attorneys may establish who is at fault for your injuries and hold them accountable.

An outcome for your big truck lawsuit could include settlements from all the at-fault parties’ insurance carriers. These parties may include the truck driver, the driver of another vehicle, or the trucking company.

If the accident occurred because of a defective part or poor maintenance, your lawyers may also seek compensation from the vehicle manufacturer or repair company.

Assessing Your Claim’s Value

You shouldn’t have to pay off your losses stemming from the 18-wheeler accident. Our truck accident lawyers in Lafayette, CO, can compile documentation and testimony to justify the full value of your settlement.

Your settlement may include economic losses like medical care bills, lost income, and property damage expenses. It could also encompass the non-economic costs like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, and emotional anguish.

After a semi-truck accident, there is a high likelihood you will endure some difficulties for the rest of your life. This is because of the sheer size of a semi-tractor trailer or “big rig.” Indeed, the reality is that semi-trucks are like large deadly weapons if not handled with expertise and care. To be clear, your final compensation should reflect the totality of those losses.

Negotiating a Settlement

Insurance companies for interstate motor carriers often fight to lower truck accident claim values. For example, they may try to shift the blame or imply that your injuries are not as bad as you say. Insurance companies may also extend negotiations in the hope that you will run out of time to file a lawsuit under Colorado’s statute of limitations, CO Rev Stat § 13-80-101.

The Lafayette truck accident attorneys at Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC recognize these tactics and can strive to counter them through out experience, and by hiring the right experts for your case.

Taking for Your Case Before a Jury, If Needed

While we work on settling your big truck accident claim, we manage your case as if it’s going to trial. We have found that treating your case like it will go to trial increases the chances of an out-of-court settlement. Indeed, due to our high level of preparation and attention to detail, we often can reach a settlement before we get to the point of presenting a case to a jury at trial. However, if the insurance company refuses to offer a sufficient financial recovery, the attorneys at Cook, Bradford & Levy are experience and will be well-prepared to go before a jury.

By setting up a court date, you show the insurance company you are serious about your negotiations. Insurance companies know that a trial can be costly for them, so they may settle before it begins.

Client Reviews
“I was rear ended by a driver on his cell phone. I started with another attorney, but was not receiving adequate attention to my case. I switched to Brian and everything changed. He was attentive to my situation, listened to all I had to say, and worked to resolve my case in a timely fashion. He continued to communicate and touch base even during slow parts of the process. After the settlement was resolved, he has still reached out to check in on my health and well being. I would highly recommend Brian Bradford as a lawyer.” Randy
“A driver trying to get away from the police ran a red light and broadsided my car. My injuries affected me physically, emotionally and organizationally. Hiring Steve Cook allowed me to focus on healing while ALL the legal Issues were effectively handled by his firm. Steve's patience, honest, determination. competence and experienced evaluation of my case resulted in a great settlement without having to go to trial.” Shirley
“I was injured in a car accident and I was having a hard time getting much of a response from the insurance companies. I never thought I would resort to calling an attorney, but I am so happy that I did, and that Jason Levy was that attorney. He was respectful, knowledgeable, and kind. When I was healing from major surgery, he arranged for my deposition to take place all the way out in Harford County, at a library near my home, rather than having me come into the city. He was also very persistent with the other driver's insurance company, finally negotiating an excellent settlement” Kate
