Tractor Trailer and Commercial Truck Accidents

Denver Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyer Fighting for Colorado Accident Victims

Serving Denver-area residents for more than 20 years, the personal injury attorneys at Levine Law provide experienced and compassionate legal representation for 18-wheeler truck accident victims and their families. Led by firm founder Jordan Levine, our personal injury team has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. This includes a $770,000 court verdict for a client who suffered neck and back injuries in a truck accident and a nearly $2 million settlement for a couple who sustained back injuries requiring surgery in a rear-end truck collision.

At Levine Law, we are passionate about what we do, and we stand firmly in our belief that our clients always come first. We are available 24/7 if you have questions, and you and your Denver truck accident lawyer will work as a team so that you can make informed decisions while we fight for maximum compensation.

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, then Colorado law may entitle you to significant damages as compensation for your losses — whether through a negotiated settlement with the opposing party, or through trial litigation. Commercial truck accident disputes can be rather challenging, so it’s important that you consult with a qualified 18-Wheeler accident attorney as soon as possible for guidance.

Semi-Truck and Tractor Trailer Accidents by Numbers

Truck accidents often result in severe injury, or even death — in fact, these high-severity incidents occur at a greater frequency with truck accidents than “standard” car accident scenarios.  According to the data gathered and reported by the US Department of Transportation, 4,136 people died in large truck crashes in 2018 alone, with 82 percent of those killed either the occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles, or pedestrians, bicyclists, or motorcyclists.

Truck accidents are so dangerous due to their mass.  Large trucks may be up to 10 times or even 20 times heavier than the passenger vehicles they share the road with.  As such, when they collide with another vehicle, the force of impact is significant enough to tear through protective material, overcome “crumple” mechanisms, and severely injure (or kill) the occupants of the smaller vehicle.

Colorado Statute of Limitations for Tractor Trailer Accidents 

Keep in mind, if you wait too long to hire an attorney, critical evidence may be lost in your case. Additionally, in Denver, injury claims involving motor vehicles, including semi-trucks, are subject to a three-year statute of limitations. This means that you will generally only have three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you fail to act within the statutory deadline, you will be barred from pursuing monetary recovery. Moreover, if your truck accident claim is against the State of Colorado or involves a government-owned truck or government employee, you will have a shorter period of time – generally only 180 days to give written notice to the parties involved in the accident. Given that statutes of limitation can be confusing, it is always best to contact a Denver truck accident attorney who can make certain that you do not miss any critical deadlines.

How Can a Denver 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer Help?

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a Denver-area truck accident, you may be wondering whether you need to hire an attorney. The reality is that accident cases involving semi-tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles are often far more complex than a traditional car accident case. The injuries tend to be very serious, if not fatal, and multiple parties may be legally responsible for the accident. Getting the compensation you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages is likely to be an uphill battle.

When you are hurt in a crash involving a truck, it is important to recognize that the truck driver, trucking company and other responsible parties will be backed by a team of powerful attorneys with extensive experience defending against claims just like yours. These attorneys know how to challenge truck accident claims and minimize payments to accident victims. In order to level the playing field, you need to have a strong legal team of your own. Jordan Levine, the founder of Levine Law, has years of experience standing up to large corporations and insurance carriers on behalf of Denver-area residents. He and his entire legal team know how the industry operates and they will do everything they can to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.
