Should I hire a lawyer if I’m involved in a truck accident in Colorado?

Yes. A tractor-trailer accident is much more complex than an automobile accident involving another car. It’s not just the truck driver you need to deal with after an accident. Often, you have to contact trucking companies and all the other companies involved with tractor-trailers: the company that loaded the truck, the one that unloaded it, plus all the insurance companies and attorneys. Our Colorado truck accident lawyers have years of experience dealing with such complicated accidents. We know how to investigate truck accidents, negotiate with insurance companies and deliver results. Your case matters here.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident call us for a free case evaluation.


Can a lawyer help me fill out paperwork after my truck accident?

Yes. The amount of paperwork people must fill out for truck accidents in Colorado can be enormous. Sometimes, insurance companies and trucking companies put pressure on people to fill these forms out fast. Don’t let them rush you. Take your time. And we can help. Our accident attorneys in Colorado know what information insurance companies want after an accident, and we know how to help you find the facts you need for any paperwork. We’re on your side.

Should I contact the trucking company after my truck accident?

You don’t have to contact a trucking company if you don’t want to do so. If you do, we suggest simply telling them you have hired an accident attorney at Bell & Pollock and they should direct all their questions about the accident to us. We can also help track down the trucking company that employs the driver that caused your accident. For more information, visit our page, trucking companies and truck accidents.

Can I hold trucking companies responsible for my truck accident?

Yes. There are many reasons why you can hold trucking companies responsible for your truck accident. If the trucking company knowingly hired a truck driver with a history of violations, you might have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit in Colorado. The same goes for trucking companies that force truck drivers to work long hours and not take mandatory breaks. Drivers of commercial trucks are the agents of the company that owns the truck. If the driver causes an accident, the trucking company may be liable.

Should I accept the first offer from an insurance company for my truck accident?

No. Insurance companies often make offers to injury victims soon after a truck accident. They do this because they know that injury victims want to resolve their case as soon as possible. The problem is most insurance companies offer injury victims far less than the true cost of a truck accident. As a result, injury victims lose out on money they need for medical bills, lost wages and other major expenses. We can work with you and negotiate with insurance companies.

Yes. If we believe that’s the best way to obtain the money you deserve for your accident, we can work with you to file a lawsuit.

Fortunately, I was referred to Robert Brovege by a family member. He and his paralegal always took time to explain everything that was happening in my case, and what the next step would be. It was great knowing that someone was always in my corner. I would highly recommend Robert Brovege.
