Injuries incurred in truck accidents prompt lawsuits

Driving a semitruck is not easy. It takes more time to gain speed and come to a complete stop than a much smaller vehicle. Navigating around curves and corners, traffic congestion and parking lots often takes nerves of steel. Drivers of these unwieldy transporters can easily find themselves as the cause of truck accidents. One of Colorado's most recent semitruck accidents resulted in injuries for two people.

The mid-afternoon accident happened when the truck driver did not correctly assess an upcoming curve and steered his vehicle into oncoming traffic, hitting a pickup truck before leaving the road. The semi came to a stop with the trailer partially blocking the road. The pickup truck was forced off the road by the impact and hit a shed.

Although the driver and the passenger in the pickup truck were wearing their seatbelts, they were injured badly enough to be flown to a medical facility three hours away for treatment. At the time of a report on the accident, there was no update on the condition of either person. There was no injury to the semitruck driver. Police said he was going too fast for road conditions but did not indicate charges in the matter.

The physical pain from injuries suffered in any type of accident can be compounded by the dread of not having the money to pay for extensive medical bills, rehabilitation and other associated costs. Add a nonexistent paycheck from not being able to work and there is a fear of never being financially caught up. One way to recoup these losses is an award from filing a personal injury lawsuit. A Colorado attorney who has experience helping victims of truck accidents will be able to advise potential clients on the best way to proceed.
