Parker Colorado Trucking Accident Lawyer

Commercial & Big-Rig Truck
Accident & Injury Information
Colorado Attorney R. Brian Daniel

The U.S. Economy relies on large trucks and commercial vehicles to transport a variety of items including food, livestock and goods across the country. On their cross country routes, these trucks often find themselves driving through the beautiful State of Colorado. Unfortunately, hazardous weather conditions, fatigued truck drivers and truck driving negligence can cause catastrophic trucking accidents. Due to the sheer size and weight of the typical transportation trucks, trucking accidents often lead to severe injuries, disabilities and even death.

In 2008, trucking accidents and bus accidents accounted for over 143,000 accidents and almost 100,000 injuries in the United States. Over 4,200 of these trucking accidents resulted in fatalities - almost a dozen deaths each day of the year. If you are involved in a Trucking Accident, a Parker, Colorado Truck Accident Attorney can help assist you with making sure that the laws of the State of Colorado work in your favor. A Parker, Colorado Truck Accident Attorney can also help you to maximize any recovery to which you may be entitled as the result of injuries or damages you have sustained in such an accident.

Large Trucks and Trucking Companies

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are two of the departments that are responsible for overseeing large truck safety. According to the FMCSA, a large truck is defined as any vehicle weighing over 10,000 pounds. In general, trucking companies and truck drivers have a responsibility to maintain their vehicles, adhere to strict guidelines on the number of hours of driving per day, and also to obey all federal and state trucking regulation and drive safely. All of these duties exist in order to foster safety and avoid dangerous collisions. Unfortunately, many trucking companies and truck drivers fail to follow the required guidelines or even the standard “rules of the road”, and this negligence puts everyone at risk.

After a Trucking Accident – Seek Medical Attention

If you or someone you love is injured in a trucking accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately in order to avoid life-threating complications or even death. Fully loaded big rigs can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. As a result, automobiles are simply unable to withstand the violent forces caused in a truck/car collision and, unfortunately, many of the injuries in a trucking accident are sustained by the occupants in the other smaller vehicle.  

After a Trucking Accident – Find a Trucking Accident Attorney

In addition to seeking medical attention, you should contact a Parker, Colorado Trucking Accident Attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will need to investigate your case carefully to determine if truck driver’s negligence contributed to or caused your accident or even if the trucking company was negligent in the hiring or supervision of its driver. If the truck driver or trucking company is found to be negligent, they may be held liable. Your Parker, Colorado Truck Accident Attorney will need to begin aggressively negotiating with insurance companies and trucking companies as soon as possible in order to ensure that you receive immediate medical care and then to assure that you received the maximum compensation for your injuries. Unfortunately, many trucking accident victims do not seek legal representation immediately and, as a result, they might be convinced to accept a settlement that is typically offered at a fraction of what is needed (or deserved).

If you have been injured in a commercial or big-rig trucking accident in the State of Colorado, contact a Parker, Colorado Trucking Accident Attorney at The Daniel Law Firm, today. (303) 951-0233
