Truck Accidents Archives

Is the overall number of truck accidents decreasing?

Motor vehicle accidents happen for many reasons. Fatigue, reckless behavior, distraction, speeding and many other actions can significantly increase the chance of a collision. Truck accidents are particularly concerning because these types of crashes are more likely to result in serious injury, property damage or even death because of the large size and heavy weight of these commercial vehicles. 

Truck accidents: Driver faces charges in serious crash

A truck driver who reportedly ran his vehicle into a number of other cars is facing serious charges, according to local sources. Truck accidents can be destructive affairs, and Colorado authorities have confirmed this one is no different. Four people are dead, several others injured, and the driver deemed responsible could face decades behind bars if he is found guilty. 

Truck accidents: Being rear-ended can be devastating

Trucks transporting goods on Colorado roadways are vital to maintaining the way of life that people have become accustomed to. Builders rely on trucks to deliver materials needed for projects. The building industry is thriving and the number of trucks on the road has risen to correspond with the needs of the industry. An increase in truck traffic leads to a potential increase in the number of truck accidents.

What steps should drivers take following truck accidents?

Tractor-trailers perform a duty that is critical for the maintenance of the American lifestyle. With so many big rigs on Colorado roads, truck accidents are bound to happen. Due to the enormous size and weight of these vehicles in comparison to passenger vehicles, those accidents are often quite severe. There are several steps one should take when he or she is involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer to promote safety and prepare for dealing with the legal aspects of the accident.

Truck accidents often have serious consequences

Semitrailers flood the roadways across this country, transporting everything from toilet paper to exotic cars. The products they carry enable citizens to live the lives they have become accustomed to -- a life where anything one needs can usually be found in a store nearby. The country depends on the services these trucks provide. There are, however, dangers associated with 80,000 pound vehicles covering the roadways. When truck accidents happen, the results are often catastrophic.

Truck accidents: 1 dead, 1 hurt in Colorado

One person is dead and another is critically injured following a semi truck crash on Interstate 70, according to local law enforcement. Colorado State Patrol responded to the crash on the morning of Dec. 12. Thankfully, no other vehicles were involved in the accident, but as with most truck accidents of this magnitude, the investigation is ongoing. 

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.

Truck accidents happen anytime, anywhere

All drivers must beware when they are on the road. Distractions inside the car -- such as cell phones, children or radios -- can draw needed attention from all that is going on around them. Car and truck accidents can and do happen when drivers are not fully aware of their surroundings. One of Colorado's most recent truck accidents happened on a state highway, causing damage to several vehicles and injury to three people.

Lawsuits an option following truck accidents

Many people often experience anxiety when driving on the road in the vicinity of semi trucks. News reports frequently feature stories of truck accidents that happen because of the lack of sleep of drivers who had delivery deadlines or because they may not see a smaller car on the road beside them. One of the more recent truck accidents on I-25 took the life of a Colorado State Trooper.

Truck accidents can lead to lawsuits

Personal injury lawsuits are frequently filed after people have been seriously injured or have died because of the negligence of another person. The injuries can come from a variety of sources, including car and truck accidents. One of a number of truck accidents on a Colorado interstate injured several people in a recent afternoon incident.
