Semi-Truck Accidents

Recovering from a large company in a truck accident case isn't the same as settling a car accident case under a consumer auto insurance policy. Typically, the injuries suffered in a truck accident are more severe, the questions of proof will demand expert opinion and testimony. With the possibility of million-dollar liability coverage, most commercial insurance adjusters will scrutinize your claim. Be careful what you say and consult with an experienced semi-truck accident lawyer before giving a statement, if possible.

We Can Help with Accidents Ranging from Taxis to Semi-Trucks

Any accident with a commercial vehicle is likely to present complications. If your crash involved an over-the-road big rig, federal safety regulations will affect the liability of the owner, the driver, and any contractors involved with the semi-truck or its maintenance. If your accident involved an RTD bus, anywhere in metro Denver or the surrounding region, you'll need to deal with municipal liability laws and an extremely short governmental immunity notice requirement.

We help clients meet, and overcome, the challenges of accident litigation involving semi-trucks, construction vehicles, delivery vans, public transit buses, private limos, taxis, and charter vehicles, or any other vehicle operated professionally.

We Also Help with The Practical Problems You Might Face After the Accident

Ultimately, our goal is to make sure you recover the money you need to support recovery from serious injuries. In some cases, the objective will be to secure your comfort for many years to come in the case of a permanent injury such as brain injury, broken bones, quadriplegia, or amputation. Even minor wrecks with commercial vehicles can cause significant injuries resulting in high medical bills and wage loss.

Choosing a Commercial Trucking Accident Attorney

Trucking accident cases differ significantly from ordinary motor vehicle accidents, and victims of these accidents do not often understand all the potential issues. Federal trucking laws apply, video and GPS information may get lost or destroyed, trucker logs may be altered, and top insurance adjusters handle these high-dollar insurance cases. You need a top trucking accident lawyer on your side.

Finding a Trucking Accident Injury Attorney

The trucking company, and their insurance carrier, will have a team of attorneys, investigators, and adjusters hard at work within hours of an accident, assembling favorable evidence and defending their side of the case. Victims of trucking accidents are advised to be just as diligent in contacting a trucking accident attorney to explore their rights to compensation and justice. A few considerations when choosing a Denver trucking accident attorney

Competence: Always make sure that a prospective attorney is licensed in the applicable state, and is experienced in trucking accident law. Our attorneys are licensed in Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming.

Fees & Costs: Make sure there is a full understanding of the attorney’s fees, as well as any additional costs that are the responsibility of the client. We do not generally ask for a cost retainer and there is no attorney’s fee until we recover for you.

Procedure: A competent attorney will be able to provide a detailed game plan and a timeline of expected events.

Personal Service: Some work (record-keeping, information gathering, etc.) will be designated to paralegals and assistants, but the core tasks of the case should be handled personally by the attorney, and there should always be accessible communication between client and attorney. Our clients are each represented by two personal injury attorneys and given the cell phone number of our founding partner, Dallas Norton.

The metro Denver personal injury law firm of Western States Law, P.C., offers free consultations, and always takes almost all cases on a contingent fee basis. Although the hub of our personal injury law firm is in Aurora, Colorado, our injury attorneys practice in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming
