Denver Truck and Car Collision Attorneys
When a truck, whether it’s an 18-wheeler or another kind of commercial vehicle, hits a common passenger car, it’s almost certain which vehicle will fare better. Cars won’t win when they go against a tractor-trailer, and anyone who’s been in a truck accident knows how devastating the effects of such a crash can be.
Any driver operating a commercial vehicle has the obligation to ensure the safety of the smaller vehicles around it. Whether it’s on the city streets of Denver or the larger highways across Colorado, commercial drivers must operate their vehicles safely. When they fail to uphold their obligation, the resulting car truck collision can be downright devastating, with severe injury and death often the result.
The Lamber Goodnow injury law team, together with its legal partners in Colorado fight for our clients to make sure trucking companies and their drivers are held responsible for their negligence. When we launch an investigation on behalf of our clients after they’ve been hit by a truck, we’re setting out to prove the trucking company’s liability and get you the recovery you deserve.
When you hire the Lamber Goodnow legal team, you’re not just hiring a lawyer, you’re hiring seasoned professionals with proven experience in truck and car collision cases. Our group includes not just attorneys, but also experts on insurance law, commercial trucking laws and more. We have attorneys who worked as prosecutors in truck accidents like this, and also partner with medical experts who can help us understand your injuries today, your rehabilitation moving forward and your long-term prognosis.
When we work on commercial trucking accidents, our investigations typically look at traditional issues, such as witness statements, police reports, dash cams, and similar info. But we go beyond the norm by also investigating these circumstances:
- The driver’s license and history as a commercial driver
- How he/she was trained
- The driver logbook
- Any evidence of driver fatigue
- The road conditions at the time of the collision
- The history of the trucking company
- The training program for the trucking company
- The recruiting and hiring process for the trucking company
Based on all these circumstances, we can get a better idea whether your car truck collision was an accident caused by an at-fault truck driver, or the result of greater negligence by the trucking company.
Why You Need a Lawyer
While thinking about filing a lawsuit and getting a monetary settlement might seem like an insufficient process, in truth it’s the only process our laws allow. While you and your family recover from catastrophic injuries and rebuild your lives, that money can be the difference between surviving and suffering even more.
If you don’t hire an attorney, the trucking company’s insurance company will pressure you to settle, quickly. You won’t have the expertise or resources of an attorney, which means you might not understand the full scope of liability, or what actually occurred to cause your pain and suffering.
By working with a team of attorneys like Lamber Goodnow, you’re protecting your rights and also providing yourself the time and energy required to heal. Rather than fighting with an insurance company and worrying about your case, you’ll have a team of experts working on your behalf. In turn, you can focus on recovery, and rebuilding your life.
