Truck Accidents

Colorado has a high rate of fatalities due to trucking accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA). This is in part because, when a commercial truck and car collide, it is an inherent mismatch. An average car weighs about 3000 pounds, when alternatively, a truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. With up to 80,000 pounds on board, the heavier the load a commercial vehicle is bearing, the greater the potential for catastrophic consequences. Accidents can be caused by a trucks large size, a trucking company encouraging an unrealistic schedule for their drivers, distracted driving, driver negligence, and many other reasons.

Truck Accident litigation is different than other automobile accident litigation. Truck drivers undergo specialized training and are managed by trucking companies that monitor their drivers driving practices. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) regulate trucking companies and truck drivers to hold them to high standards. Violation of these regulations can completely alter the way a truck accident case is litigation.
