Safely transporting semi-truck cargo can be a precarious balancing act, especially throughout the varied terrain of the Colorado Front Range. A truck driver must be skilled at maneuvering their vehicle’s large size and weight as they accelerate and decelerate, navigate turns and curves, and traverse inclines of varying grades. However, everyone who is involved with loading and unloading truck cargo also must take care to do so properly to make sure that the truck is ready for the road. When cargo is loaded or secured improperly, serious truck accidents can occur.

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), more than 25 percent of all car accidents in the state over the past 15 years have occurred during dawn, dusk, or the dark hours of the night.

If you have been injured in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to pursue compensation for your medical bills, property damage, and other economic and non-economic damages through a personal injury claim.

Even if your case does not go to trial, evidence can provide the leverage you need to reach a fair settlement.

Evidence of Another Party’s Negligence
