All motorists, including truck drivers, owe a legal duty of care to operate their vehicles safely. When a trucker fails to meet this standard, the results can be devastating. Due to their larger weight and size, collisions between passenger vehicles and semi-trucks can lead to severe injuries and damages.

If you or somebody you love suffered injuries in a semi-truck wreck, you should contact a Pueblo truck accident lawyer to determine your legal options. A seasoned personal injury attorney understands the difficulties posed to an injured party and could do their best to help you get your life back on track.

Potentially Liable Parties

Semi-trucks that are carrying various goods could implicate parties at different levels of the supply and distribution chains. Therefore, unlike a car wrecks with another civilian driver, truck accidents may involve multiple defendants.

The driver may be poorly trained, overworked, distracted, driving recklessly, or even intoxicated. Truck drivers are notorious for driving long shifts to meet deadlines. This means that both the truck driver and their employer could both be held liable in an accident claim.

Additionally, the loading company may have packed the truck poorly, resulting in improper weight distribution. This imbalance could affect the truck’s center of gravity and the ability to break. Improperly loaded trucks can be especially treacherous on winding mountainous roads. In this situation, an injured party could bring a claim against the loading company.

The company responsible for truck maintenance also may be at fault if a vehicle is mechanically unsound. Similarly, if truck part manufacturer fails to meet certain standards or provides a defective component, it could be liable if the courts this is the cause of a collision. An experienced Pueblo truck wreck attorney could determine which entities may need to be held responsible in an accident claim.

Recoverable Damages

Truck accidents can leave individuals with substantial medical bills. As a result, an injured party may be able to pursue compensation for past and future medical care and long-term treatment. In the case of severe injuries like paralysis or other chronic injuries, an individual may need to modify their homes or move to care facilities. In these situations, a claimant may be able to seek damages for these losses as well.

State law allows victims to recover damages for their emotional losses in addition to their economic damages. Noneconomic damages may include pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional stress, and decreased quality of life.

However, it is important to note that there may certain limitations to the amount of damages a claimant may be able to recover. A Pueblo attorney with experience litigating truck accident cases could evaluate what a claim may be worth based on the claimant’s losses.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.
