Truck Accidents Aren't the Same as Car Accidents

A collision involving a truck is more complex to resolve than a crash between automobiles. Truck accidents often involve multiple parties. Sorting out liability is complex.

Insurance companies fight commercial vehicle cases harder. Because crashes involving large trucks and cars usually produce more serious injuries, commercial truck drivers and trucking companies are required by law to carry higher amounts of liability insurance than automobile drivers. To defend their bottom line, the insurance companies will hire lawyers to defend them on their behalf. The financial stakes can be high. Insurance companies will fight to keep compensation as low as possible. Legal representation for the injured party is imperative.

If you’ve been involved in an accident with a large truck, we will investigate the accident in detail to determine all potential responsible parties. If more than one party is liable, the amount of insurance coverage available to pay for your injuries could be substantial. Let our truck accident attorneys help you recover the maximum amount of money for your injuries.

Don't Accept a Low Settlement Offer

Never accept an offer without consulting a trained professional. A consultation with CO Injury Law will cost you nothing. Trucking companies are known to quickly offer a settlement. The offer may seem like a large amount of money. However, without legal guidance, you have no way of knowing if the amount they are offering is the true value of your case. 

Typically, initial offers from insurance companies are low. At CO Injury Law we track our settlement figures from insurance companies, including figures for specific insurance adjusters. We also follow local and national figures to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. We highly advise that you consult one of our attorneys before you accept an offer from an insurance company. If the offer is fair, we will confirm that you have been offered a fair settlement. And if the offer is low, we will explain why it is low and discuss how we will help you get fair value for your case.
