Because a truck collision can affect people differently, one of the first things our team will do for you as our client is assess the extent of your injuries and damages.
We will evaluate how the vehicle collision affected your physical and mental health, your working abilities, and personal relationships and lifestyle. Then, we will divide your damages into two categories: economic and non-economic losses.
Economic losses are financial damages
Economic losses involve any financial expense, loss, or debt you experienced or have due to the truck accident. These damages can be proven with monetary documents, such as bills, receipts, tax forms, and bank statements.
As a truck accident victim in Boulder, you may demand compensation for the following types of economic damages:
- Costs for medical treatment for your injuries
- Repair costs for property damage you incurred (or the cash value of your property if it was destroyed or totaled in the accident)
- Loss of income due to having to heal from your injuries
- Reduced earning capacity if your injuries limit your working abilities temporarily or permanently
- Other out-of-pocket costs related to your injuries, such as costs for at-home care services
Non-economic losses are physical and emotional damages
Non-economic losses do not readily have a financial value, as they are more subjective and vary in their impact on an individual. Our team can assess your non-economic damages and assign a value to them to include them in your compensation demands.
These losses may include:
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of quality of life
- Permanent disability or loss of bodily function, such as vision
- Disfigurement, including scarring and severe burns
You may pursue other damages not mentioned in this list based on the circumstances of your case. Our team can describe what other damages you may qualify for based on what is named in CO Rev Stat § 13-21-102.5.Our Legal Team Will Work Hard to Build Your Truck Accident Case

According to CO Rev Stat § 13-80-101, you generally have three years from the date of the truck accident to file your lawsuit. However, depending on certain factors (e.g., suing a government entity), this deadline may vary.
