The legal standard for semi-truck accident legal liability is a failure to exercise reasonable care, or negligence. If you were injured in a semi-truck accident, here are a few examples of ways that you may have a truck accident claim:

  • The truck driver commits a traffic violation in a way that causes a crash. Examples may be excessive speed, improper lane change, tailgating and failing to observe a traffic signal
  • The trucking company fails to adequately screen employees to ensure their qualifications
  • A driver operates their vehicle negligently. Despite prior incidents, the trucking company keeps them on staff
  • The driver consumes alcohol or drugs before operating the vehicle
  • Poor maintenance results in a failure of the truck mechanics that causes an accident
  • An insecure load inside the truck pushes it off balance

As you can see, there are many different ways that another party may be at fault for the truck accident. It’s okay if you don’t even know what caused the truck accident right now. Our team conducts a thorough investigation to determine where liability lies and what your options are. Then, we set to work to bring your case on your behalf.


Colorado laws say that you can claim compensation for all of the ways the accident changes your life. The amount that you get depends on a number of factors. Most importantly, it depends on how severe the accident is and what your injuries are. Economic damages like medical bills, lost income and damage to your vehicle are all a critical part of the claim.
However, the compensation that you can get for a truck accident includes non-tangible losses, too. If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, you know that you have physical pain, emotional damages and mental anguish. These injuries are very real. They deserve compensation, too. With our legal experience, we can appropriately value these injuries and work towards earning you complete compensation that includes all of your losses, such as:

  • Medical bills for the entire duration of your treatment
  • Ambulance transfer and EMT care
  • Full diagnostic costs including emergency room treatment
  • Physical therapy and long-term rehabilitation needs
  • Psychological care, post-traumatic stress care
  • Damage to your vehicle; costs of replacement or repairs
  • Damages to the property in your vehicle
  • Pain and suffering, emotional trauma, limits to your lifestyle because of injuries
  • Inability to work and lost income
  • Any other kind of tangible or intangible losses
