How Will an Attorney Help a Denver Truck Accident Claim?

Truck accident claims present incredible challenges to plaintiffs (injury victims). The reality is that injury victims in these cases usually will not have the resources necessary to handle every aspect of these claims. However, a skilled Denver truck accident lawyer can use their resources to conduct a complete investigation to determine exactly what happened. This will include the following:

  • Obtaining any evidence necessary to prove liability
  • Ensuring their client is evaluated by trusted medical professionals
  • Working with economic and financial experts to help properly calculate total expected losses
  • Handling all communication with insurance carriers and legal teams
  • Negotiating to receive a fair settlement on behalf of their client
  • Fully preparing to take the case to trial if necessary

What Causes Most Truck Accidents?

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the most common causes of semi-truck accidents are related to the driver, the vehicle and/or the environment.

Common causes include:

  • Fatigue
  • Over-the-counter drug use
  • Illegal drug use
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving (cell phone use)
  • Traveling too fast for conditions
  • Inadequate training
  • Unfamiliar or inexperienced with vehicle
  • Speeding
  • Work-related pressure
  • Illegal maneuvers
  • Inattention
  • Aggressive driving (tailgating, weaving)
  • False assumption of other drivers’ actions

Vehicle factors include:

  • Brake failure
  • Lack of routine maintenance of the truck
  • Cargo securement
  • Cargo shift

Environmental/roadway factors include:

  • Traffic flow (pre-existing crash, congestion)
  • Unfamiliar with roadway
  • Road conditions
  • Road construction
  • Adverse weather

Time Limit to File a Denver Truck Accident Claim

It is crucial for truck accident victims in Denver to understand that they have a limited amount of time to file these claims. First, you have to worry about deadlines put in place by insurance carriers. Please understand that auto insurance carriers and the insurance carriers of the truck company likely have very strict reporting deadlines, often within a day or two after the crash occurs. If a truck crash victim fails to file a report with the insurance carriers relatively quickly, this could result in the claim being delayed or even denied.

We also have to look at the Colorado personal injury statute of limitations. This law says that injury victims must file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party in their case within two years from the date the injury occurs. Failing to do so will mean that the injury victim is unable to recover any compensation for their losses, regardless of how severe the injuries are or how much fault the other party had for the incident.

A truck accident lawyer in Denver will be able to get involved early and help ensure that all deadlines are met when it comes to filing these claims. Your attorney wants to make sure that you recover the compensation you need, so they will get your claim filed on time.
