Truck accidents involving tractor-trailers or delivery trucks and vans have the potential to cause extremely severe and even life-threatening injuries to victims. If you have been in an accident that was caused by the negligence of a commercial driver, you should seek the advice of a aggressive personal injury attorney immediately.
Professional truck drivers are held to a higher standard than other drivers. They are specifically trained to operate semis or other large trucks and vans. They have the added responsibility of knowing how the truck will react in certain situations and to handle those situations in a way that ensures the safety of other drivers. When they fail in that responsibility and an accident occurs, they can and should be held liable for the harm they have caused.
Truck Accident Attorney in Lakewood
At the Lakewood, Colorado, firm of Law Offices of Robert Paysinger, P.C., we have been assisting clients injured in truck accidents for over 30 years. We will determine all of the responsible parties, including possibly the truck driver's employer, and seek compensation from all of them.
Contacting an attorney as quickly as possible after an accident can be critical to the preservation of evidence. Trucks have Event Data Recorders (EDRs) and there is other evidence that may be tampered with if not retrieved quickly. But, even if your accident happened some time ago, our firm's skill in conducting investigations may be your best hope for securing justice and compensation.
We offer our superior representation to those who have been injured in trucking accidents including those that may have been caused by:
- Excessive speed
- Driver fatigue
- Mountain driving
- Overloading/improper loading
- Inclement weather
- Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol or prescription medications
- Distracted driving (texting, etc.)
When you hire our firm, we will investigate the accident. We will check the driver's log books to ensure compliance with federal regulations and determine if driver fatigue or an equipment failure contributed to the accident. Our attorney understands how to create a successful case no matter what type of commercial truck you were injured by. We work diligently to reach a fair settlement in order to obtain the compensation you deserve without a lengthy court battle. We are prepared to go to trial, however, if an agreement cannot be reached otherwise.
