Each year thousands of people are killed in accidents caused by large trucks, and over 100,000 are seriously injured in truck crashes. The regulation of the trucking industry is complex, and understanding the causes of truck accidents is often difficult. The attorneys at Larson & Larimer P.C. of Denver have handled many Colorado truck accident cases, and have the skills, experience and resources to handle complex personal injury, brain injury and wrongful death cases caused by truck accidents.
It is a simple fact that large trucks are harder to control and have much longer stopping distances. In addition, the large trucks have large blind spots and make wide turns, increasing the risk of accidents. This is particularly true for tractor trailer trucks traveling on highways and busy areas such as Denver or mountain Highways Like I-70. If a large truck crashes into a car, it will be the people in the car who are more likely to suffer catastrophic personal injuries.
If you have been injured or a loved one killed by a trucking accident, the experienced attorneys at Larson & Larimer will help protect your rights in this unique area. Due to the size of the trucks used by over-the-road truckers, accidents involving these vehicles can result in substantial damage and injuries.
There are many state and federal safety rules and regulations governing the operation of commercial trucks on our highways. Unfortunately, many of these rules and regulations are violated by the owners and operators of these large vehicles. Discovering these violations substantially increases the likelihood of recovery if you are injured in such an accident. Larson & Larimer has the experience and knowledge to secure the records and logs that are required to be maintained by commercial truckers so as to properly investigate your claims. Many of the accidents caused by these commercial truckers are caused by the owner or operator failing to comply with state and federal laws related to maintenance of their vehicles, the maximum amount of time a driver should be behind the wheel, weight limits and other factors that contribute to such accidents. Our experienced attorneys and the experienced experts we retain in such cases can maximize your recovery if you are injured in a trucking accident.
