Eighteen-wheeler trucks are being used more commonly for transport than ever before. While these vehicles are very efficient and can carry great loads, they can also be dangerous. They are slow to stop, top-heavy enough to roll fairly easily and difficult to maneuver. Due to the sheer size and weight of trucks, when they are involved in accidents with other vehicles, they can cause catastrophic injuries or death to the people in the other vehicle. If you have been the victim of a trucking accident or if you have lost a loved one in a trucking accident, our team at the Vance & Larson Law Firm in Alamosa, Colorado, can help you.
A Law Firm With Inside Knowledge Of The Trucking Industry
When you are dealing with a serious injury involving a negligent truck driver or trucking company, it is important to hire a personal injury lawyer with extensive knowledge in this specific area. Our attorneys, Keith Vance and Micah Larson, bring many years of experience in the trucking industry to our work for personal injury victims. We are both former truck drivers of 18-wheelers. Additionally, Mr. Vance used to represent insurance companies on behalf of truckers and trucking companies.
We have inside knowledge of the strategies the other side will use to avoid paying you the compensation you are entitled to, and we will build you a case to withstand these tactics.
We know the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act and the special rules truckers must follow to avoid collisions and stay safe. After all, these trucks are much more dangerous than an ordinary motor vehicle on the road. We know trucking accidents and the havoc they can cause in people’s lives. Most truck collisions result in catastrophic injuries such as crushed bones and other orthopedic injuries, head and traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries leading to paralysis, loss of limbs or death.
