Truck driving is a commercial enterprise. These enterprises make money by getting from point A to point B as quickly as possible. Many of the rules that truck drivers and trucking companies are supposed to follow are rules that slow them down, such as federal regulations that prevent drivers from spending too much time behind the wheel. Unfortunately, in the quest to make more money, truck drivers and trucking companies often set the rules aside, endangering everyone else on the road. The result is often a serious accident.

Investigating Semi-Truck Accidents
One of the first steps in Denver truck accident cases is to find out exactly what negligence took place. That may mean reviewing drivers’ logs and other information. Perhaps our truck accident lawyers will find out that the driver had indeed spent too many hours behind the wheel and the accident was likely caused by fatigue. We may find that the trucking company had not performed routine maintenance, and that failure had led to the accident. We may find that the driver has a history of traffic violations and should not have been behind the wheel in the first place.
Semi-Truck Accidents and Trials
Our trucking accident attorneys know that in order to succeed an attorney in Denver or any surrounding city in Colorado may have to take your case to trial. Our experience means that we know how to communicate with a jury. We know how to talk to a group of people to make them understand what they likely already know, trucks can be dangerous and, in your case, the danger became all too real.
In addition to handling cases involving large semi trucks, we handle all commercial vehicle accident cases, including those involving smaller trucks and delivery trucks.
