Trucking Accidents

Colorado truck accident attorney  Severity of Colorado Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents are not like most car accidents. It it critical that you entrust your case to an experienced Colorado truck accident attorney. If you have been hit by a semi truck, garbage truck, bus or other commercial vehicle, do not waste time. Prompt investigation can be critical to a trucking accident related case. Trucking accident cases are often complicated by out-of-state trucking companies or drivers that can be difficult to find as time passes. Some drivers even give false information.

Trucking Accidents in Colorado

According to the 2014 Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Colorado had fatality rates just below the national average. But averages don’t tell the whole story.

In 2011, 46 large truck fatalities occurred in the state; in 2012, there were 51.

And those statistics don’t account for the thousands of Colorado truck and bus crashes that resulted in injury. Due to the sheer size of these 10,000+ pound vehicles and the nature of the driving over mountain passes and steep ascents and declines, an accident with a semi truck or other commercial vehicle can cause serious physical injuries, brain and spinal cord trauma or even paralysis. These are the trucking injury cases our Colorado truck accident attorney typically handles.

However, you should always be aware of, and protect, your legal rights and options. One of the goals of Colorado truck accident attorney Peter M. Anderson is to minimize the problems of dealing with insurers. Many deny reasonable treatment, or push injured people for a quick settlement. When insurers do this to you, they may not reveal all of the benefits or coverage available.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a semi truck accident, bus crash, or other commercial vehicle related accident, you should seek the guidance of a knowledgeable and experienced Colorado trucking accident attorney.
