What should I do if I am in a Denver truck accident?
If you are injured in a truck accident, you need to contact an experienced Denver truck accident attorney immediately.

The damages in a truck accident case are usually substantial due to the severe, traumatic injuries that are common in these accidents. Therefore, the insurance company for the truck driver and trucking company will aggressively fight your claim to decrease the amount of money it must pay to settle the accident claim. In order to ensure you receive a fair and just settlement, we immediately begin a truck accident investigation. This allows us to preserve evidence that we use to prove fault and/or negligence.
