Colorado Springs Truck Accident Lawyer

Relentless Advocacy for your Injury Case

Colorado is known for its beautiful but dangerous mountain roads, particularly in mountainous areas such as Colorado Springs. The number of truck accidents increases in areas where the weather and terrain are treacherous, which means that Colorado Springs sees a high percentage of trucking accidents each year as compared to other parts of the country. These accidents are often the driver and / or trucking company's fault, but they can also be due to the weather, poor road maintenance or design, and other circumstances outside of the accident victim's control.

Attorney Ted Bills is a seasoned Colorado Springs truck accident attorney with 15+ years of experience successfully negotiating settlements and handling cases that go to trial. He has defended insurance companies in the past and uses that knowledge today to litigate for compensation on behalf of his personal injury clients.

Filing a Truck Accident Claim

To obtain compensation for your truck accident, you will need to face the big trucking company and their insurance.

To file a truck accident claim in Colorado, you must do the following:

  • Consult with an attorney. It is vital that you have a skilled lawyer when you do so to ensure that you have a strong argument and that you receive the compensation you deserve. An attorney will be able to evaluate the strength of your claim and advise you on the best course of action.
  • Investigate the crash. Your attorney will gather evidence such as eyewitness accounts, police reports, photographic evidence, medical records, and more to determine the cause of your collision and establish liability. You may have a claim to compensation if it can be proven that the truck driver, the trucking company, or a third party violated certain regulations or safety policies prior to your crash, such as exceeding weight limits, driving too many hours without rest, or improper vehicle maintenance.
  • Negotiate with insurance companies. Once your attorney has gathered enough evidence and crafted a clear picture of your accident's various causes, negotiations will begin with the responsible parties and their insurance companies. Insurance companies will often attempt to offer as little as possible to settle the matter and minimize their losses, which is why it is crucial to have an experienced legal advocate on your side to maximize your chances of securing the compensation you deserve.

Colorado Truck Accident Statute of Limitations

Under Colorado law, truck accident victims have up to three years from the date of their collision to file a lawsuit. This window may be even shorter for claims related to fatal truck accidents or those involving children. If this window of time expires, injured parties may lose their right to take legal action. For this reason, it is imperative to speak with an attorney as soon as possible following a truck accident to preserve your rights as well as gather key evidence which could be lost or destroyed with time.
