Semi-Truck Accidents Don’t Just Happen on Highways

When you think of a crash involving a semi-truck, you generally think of an accident out on the interstate or a two-lane highway. But it’s not just on the highways that an accident can happen. Semi accidents can happen anywhere, including in town where you don’t expect them.

Just yesterday, a massive 13-vehicle crash tied up a major thoroughfare in Denver in both directions. The accident happened at the start of rush hour and had the busy street closed until late at night. While their investigation isn’t complete, police think the crash was caused by a semi. A number of people, including the semi driver, were taken to the hospital.

If you’re involved in a semi crash and are hurt, your injuries could be life-changing. You’ll almost certainly need medical care, and you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. But semi accident cases are among the most legally complex and can involve bringing a claim against the trucking company, truck driver, the garage that performed maintenance on the truck and other parties. You need the help of an experienced Colorado semi accident attorney to navigate a claim like this.

If you’ve been hurt in a semi accident, give me a call at (303) 758-4777 or email me. Let’s set up a no-obligation meeting to talk about your case.
