Colorado Trucking Accident Attorneys

Truck Accident Lawyers Serving Victims in Denver, Vail Valley, and throughout Eagle and Summit Counties

Unfortunately, commercial truck accidents remain a very serious public safety problem in Colorado. According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there are more than 2,000 large truck accidents in Colorado each year. In 2015, these crashes resulted in more than 800 injuries and, tragically, 69 reported fatalities.

Truck accident victims are entitled to fair compensation from the negligent trucking company. However, in practice, this compensation can be very difficult to obtain. At Bloch & Chapleau, LLC, our experienced Colorado truck accident lawyers fight aggressively on behalf of injured victims. If you were hurt in a commercial truck crash, please reach out to our law firm for immediate legal assistance.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Commercial Truck Crash in Colorado?

One of the many things that make commercial truck accidents complex is the fact that more than one party could potentially bear some (or all) of the financial liability for a victim’s damages. The party responsible for your Colorado truck accident could include any of the following:

  • The truck driver;
  • The truck driver’s employer;
  • The company that owned the truck;
  • The manufacturer of the truck or the trailer;
  • The company that was leasing the truck; or
  • A third-party driver.

Compensation Available for Truck Accident Victims

In Colorado, injured truck accident victims are legally entitled to recover full financial compensation for their losses. Sadly, doing so can be very difficult. The big trucking companies are represented by large insurance firms. These insurers use well-honed tactics and settlement strategies to try to limit how much they pay out to victims. Our Denver trucking accident lawyers know how to hold these companies accountable. We can help you recover money for:

  • Automobile damage;
  • Emergency room bills;
  • Medical expenses;
  • Long term disability;
  • Lost current and future income;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Loss of limb; and
  • Wrongful death.
