Semi Truck Accidents Lawyer

Vehicle accidents involving commercial trucks have tremendous impact on people’s lives and can cause severe damage, injury and even death.

Any auto accident scenario has the potential to be catastrophic or even deadly. But when it comes to accidents between large semi-tractor-trailer trucks and smaller passenger vehicles, the likelihood of wreckage and resulting harm increases dramatically.

In light of the inherent dangers associated with truck accidents, it is crucial to acknowledge that incidents involving the convergence of large commercial trucks and smaller motor vehicles heighten the potential for devastation or fatality. A truck accident lawyer understands such scenarios’ immense potential for damage and injury.

Truck Accidents Attorneys in Denver

If you’ve been seriously injured or lost someone you love in a truck accident caused by the negligence of another driver, the attorneys at Ken Fiedler Injury Law have the skill, experience and resources to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve. We understand the complexity and difficulty of truck accident cases, and we work tirelessly to defend your rights and interests.

Several factors can contribute to semi-truck accidents, including driver fatigue, speeding, distracted driving, mechanical failures, poor weather conditions and inadequate training. Additionally, issues such as overloaded or improperly loaded trucks can also increase the risk of accidents.

Consequences: Due to their size and weight, semi-truck accidents often result in severe consequences, including serious injuries or fatalities to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. These accidents can also cause significant property damage and traffic disruptions.

Regulations: There are strict regulations governing the operation of commercial trucks to enhance safety on the roads. These regulations cover driver qualifications, hours of service, vehicle maintenance and cargo security. However, enforcement of these regulations can vary and compliance isn’t guaranteed.

Legal Aspects: Semi-truck accidents often involve complex legal issues, particularly concerning liability and compensation. Parties that may be held liable for a truck accident include the truck driver, trucking company, vehicle manufacturer, maintenance provider and cargo loader. Legal recourse may involve insurance claims, settlements, or lawsuits.

Prevention: Preventing semi-truck accidents requires a multi-faceted approach, including improved driver training, enforcement of regulations, enhanced vehicle safety technologies and public awareness campaigns. Additionally, fostering a culture of safety within the trucking industry is essential to reduce the frequency of accidents.

Overall, semi-truck accidents pose significant risks to road safety and require ongoing efforts from stakeholders to mitigate risks and prevent future incidents.

Truck Accident Lawsuits Often Have Multiple Defendants

There are times when drivers of smaller cars cause truck accidents. Most of the time, however, the truck drivers or trucking companies are to blame. Common causes of accidents include:

  • Fatigued and drowsy truck drivers who have been on the road for too long without adequate sleep
  • Distracted and inattentive truck drivers
  • Inexperienced and poorly trained truck drivers
  • Faulty and broken truck equipment such as worn-out brakes
  • Loads that are too heavy, unbalanced or improperly secured
  • Speeding and aggressive driving
  • Failure to follow trucking regulations related to vehicle maintenance, hours of service or other safety matters

When a truck driver causes an accident, several parties may beheld accountable under the law. Other defendants in the lawsuit might include:

  • The trucking company (which is responsible for training/monitoring drivers and equipment)
  • The leasing company that provided the tractor-trailer
  • Any repair shops or mechanics that provided maintenance and repairs to the vehicle before the crash
  • Auto manufacturers that made the truck, if faulty equipment was a factor in the accident

When we take your case, we work to identify as many potential defendants as possible to ensure that all liable parties are held accountable.

Why You Need A Skilled Trial Lawyer

Truck accident cases involve much more investigation than a typical car accident lawsuit. And because trucking companies are backed by powerful insurers, your lawyers need to be prepared to act quickly and aggressively to preserve evidence and conduct an independent investigation into the crash.
