Commercial Truck Accidents
Not all car accidents are the same. If you have been in an accident with an 18-wheeler or commercial truck, you may have suffered more serious injuries, and there is probably more insurance money available to compensate you than in a non-trucking case. To maximize the value of your claim, consider putting our Boulder trucking accident lawyers on your side.

While commercial vehicles can cause big damage, commercial insurance policies can lead to big settlements. However, you have to be ready to fight against the trucking company and its insurance carrier. Our firm has the resources and experience to prosecute these claims, both in negotiation and at trial.
In trucking cases, we routinely investigate the conditions that led to your accident. Truck drivers are required to keep logs of their time on the road, and their trucks often carry "black boxes" that allow the accident to be accurately reconstructed. We will obtain these notes and look for any type of negligence, including:
- Drug or alcohol use
- Equipment failure
- Act Fast in Accidents Involving Government Vehicles
There are strict requirements for claims involving buses and other government vehicles. If you fail to act in a timely manner, you could lose your right to sue. If you were in an accident with a bus or RTD vehicle, you have to provide notice prior to filing suit, and failing to provide this notice can impair your ability to pursue your claim.
