Proving Truck Driver Negligence

Your Lawyer Makes A Difference

Truck driver negligence is often the cause of serious truck accidents on highways and truck routes. Drivers can easily be distracted, fatigued or drive recklessly. When truck driver negligence can be proven by your personal injury lawyer, you stand to recover maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.

What Is Truck Driver Negligence?

  • Reckless driving such as speeding, quick lane changes, swerving, disobeying traffic signals and other traffic violations
  • Hours of service violations (working too many hours without appropriate rest, as mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)
  • Distracted driving, including texting and GPS distractions
  • Improper loading or securing of cargo
  • Failing to make proper safety and maintenance checks before driving

How We Prove Truck Driver Negligence In Colorado

At FleschLaw, we go to work quickly. We will collaborate with a network of trucking industry and medical experts to investigate the accident, gather evidence and evaluate your case. This evaluation depends greatly on our ability to prove negligence either on the part of the truck driver or trucking company.

Proving negligence requires:

  1. Providing evidence that there was a breach of the duty of care. Truck drivers and others on the road are obligated to prevent injuries to fellow drivers by limiting dangers on the road. This requires adherence with all trucking regulations, road laws and reasonable safety expectations.
  2. Showing that the truck driver's negligence was the cause of your accident and resulting injuries.

On the surface, this may sound easy, but the technicalities involved with proving negligence, proving the value of your damages and proving causation are immense. The defense resistance from the trucking company and its insurance provider will add to the complexities.

It is crucial that you document your injuries and losses, speak with an attorney before making recorded statements of any kind, and follow our 10 simple steps after your accident.

“ I was Injured and they paid ”

I was hurt when I was rear ended and I used up all my insurance money on treatment for my injuries. I went to Kevin to get fair compensation. His office was very helpful, explained the process and then they followed through like they promised. I got my medical expenses paid and money for future treatment plus I got money for pain and suffering. I was very surprised by the result. – Linda

“ Really Happy ”

I went to Fleschlaw after hearing an ad on the radio. I interviewed several attorneys and Kevin and his staff made me feel the most comfortable. They explained the process. The car accident really messed up my life. I needed help with my medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. We just got the case resolved. It was a long process but I am very happy with the results. I would refer anyone to Fleschlaw if they get in a car accident. – Sara

“ Fleschlaw took care of my case when other lawyers stopped helping ”

I was with another firm that dropped me after they didn't get a settlement right away. I am so glad they did. I found Fleschlaw and they quickly filed suit and fought for my rights. We were set for trial in April and we settled the case when the insurance company finally paid a fair amount for my long term problems. I would refer Kevin and his staff to all of my friends and family. – Dana

“ Very Happy ”

I retained Fleschlaw to handle my claims against someone who hit me last year. The insurance company was jerking me around and I was really mad at how awful I was being treated. Kevin met with me and he made me feel less anxious right away. The firm handled the claim professionally and their customer service was the best I have ever experienced with any lawfirm. The results have changed my life. – Mary

“ Fleschlaw knows car accidents ”

I was involved in a hit and run while driving for work. I was referred to Kevin from my worker's comp. lawyer. Kevin and his staff were great. The process was really confusing but he explained everything and did exactly what he said would happen. I got my money fast and I am back to work. - Valinda

“ Kevin did a great Job!! ”

I had a personal injury case and I started with another lawyer and that lawyer would never call me back or talk with me. I called Kevin to get a second opinion and he was so helpful I switched lawyers. I am so glad I did. He went to bat against the insurance company and finally got them to pay me more than I was expecting. - Mandy
