Liability in Colorado Truck Accident Claims

In most traffic accident claims, a negligent driver is liable for the injury victim’s damages. However, truck accident claims are complex because the driver isn’t necessarily liable even if they were negligent or reckless. Depending on the cause of the accident and whether or not the driver is an independent contractor or employee, the liable party could be the driver, the trucking company, a truck maintenance company, a negligent freight-loading company, or the manufacturer of a defective truck or trailer part. Determining the correct liable party is critical to the success of a truck accident claim. If your accident occurred on the job, a Broomfield work injury lawyer can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

What Compensation Can I Get From a Truck Accident Claim in Broomfield?

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future lost income
  • Lowered future earning capacity/disability
  • Pain and suffering
