Colorado Truck Accidents Lawyer

18-wheelers, commercial trucks, moving trucks, box trucks—any of these vehicles can cause significant damage to smaller vehicles on Colorado roads. And, with our high-grade highways and busy I-70, there’s no lack of opportunity for these heavy trucks to lose their brakes or pop tires. If you were struck by a truck and suffered an injury, call a Colorado truck accident lawyer now for help with seeking financial compensation.

There are many variables when it comes to determining liability in a truck accident. The trucker may work for an independently owned company, or they may be an employee of a larger company. A moving truck may be manned by a complete amateur, unaware of how to navigate a larger vehicle. Or, the trucking company or mechanic may not have maintained the rig properly. Even the government could be liable, if road conditions, signage, and runaway ramps are not kept in good repair.

Your Colorado injury attorney from Lerner and Rowe will sort all of this out and pursue your rightful financial compensation.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim After a Semi-Tractor-Trailer Accident in Colorado?

In Colorado, all victims of trucking accidents have only two years from the date of their accident to file a claim. This can be problematic, as many victims tend to suffer severe injuries that take a long time to heal. In other words, you will want to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible so that you don’t risk losing the money that is rightfully yours. 

This deadline is mandated by law through the statute of limitations. Your attorney will understand exactly how it applies to your situation, and give you advice on the best way to move forward, even if your deadline is coming up soon.
