Do I Have a Case?
Truck accidents are more complex than passenger car accidents and may involve multiple at-fault parties. The common thread all truck accident cases have is that they include carelessness on the part of one party connected to the truck, whether it’s the driver, their employer, or another party.
Common Types of Compensable Truck Accidents
- Rollover accidents
- Jackknife accidents
- Tire blowouts
- Underride accidents
- Blindspot accidents
- Right turn accidents
- Head-on or rear-end accidents
Are You Within the Legal Time Limit?
The statute of limitations is the timeframe you have to open a case or file a lawsuit for your truck accident injury. In Colorado, the statute of limitations for truck accident injuries is three years from the date of the accident. However, there can be exceptions to this law based on the unique circumstances of your case. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced Pueblo, CO, truck accident lawyer on your side who can ensure you don’t miss any important deadlines.
Was Someone Else at Fault?
Negligence is a critical factor in determining fault in an accident. Negligence occurs when there is a failure to act with reasonable care, and it’s important to identify because if you can’t successfully prove someone else’s carelessness caused your accident and injuries, you will be responsible for your accident-related expenses.
To establish fault in an accident, you must prove that the driver, trucking company, or another party didn’t act with reasonable care in their duties and that led to the accident and your subsequent injuries. Our truck accident attorneys have years of experience proving negligence on behalf of our clients. We may be able to do the same for you. Contact us today to learn more in a free case review. We’re on top of it!
What Compensation Can I Receive?
Truck accidents usually involve significant injuries, damage to your vehicle, and possibly other losses like lost wages. If you were injured in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for all your expenses, including but not limited to:
- Medical expenses, such as hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy, medication, specialist visits, and more.
- Lost wages for the time you missed from work or sick time you had to use for your injury treatment.
- Property damage for the repairs or replacement of your vehicle.
- Pain and suffering for the emotional distress you experienced or a loss of enjoyment of life.
In Colorado, you may have your compensation reduced if you were partly at fault for your accident. The court will assign a percentage of fault to you, and your compensation will be reduced by that amount. If you’re more than 50% at fault, you may not be entitled to any compensation. That’s why it is so important to speak with an attorney who has experience recovering compensation for injuries following truck accidents. Once we’ve determined that you have a case, our Pueblo, CO, truck accident lawyers will go straight to work in seeking the maximum amount of compensation possible while you focus on recovering.
