Leading Truck Accident Attorneys in Colorado

Since the trucking industry has so many moving parts to ensure the state’s commerce operates seamlessly, the truck driver, trucking company, or other third parties must maintain extensive safety protocols to ensure no one gets hurt in the process. At Springer & Steinberg, P.C., our skilled Colorado truck accident lawyers know that is simply not the case all the time.

The Colorado Motor Carriers Association (CMCA) reported last year that the trucking industry in Colorado provided over 110,000 jobs throughout the state. These positions were made possible by the over 13,000 trucking companies located throughout the state, most of them small, locally-owned businesses.

The CMCA also reported over 79% of Colorado communities depend exclusively on trucks to move their goods, which requires employing tens of thousands of drivers to operate heavy, tractor-trailer, and commercial delivery vehicles.

When negligence is a factor anywhere in the transportation industry — whether it is an impaired truck driver getting behind the wheel or a trucking company pushing drivers to place profits over safety by exceeding the Hours-of-Service Regulations — people are going to get hurt.

That is why we are here.

While we hope you never need us, our devoted legal advocates work diligently to outline each of our client’s vulnerable positions, so the insurance companies are fully aware of how their injuries have affected their day-to-day lives and overall well-being, so we can pursue the financial outcome they deserve.

Semi-Truck Traffic Traveling the Colorado Rockies Can Lead to Catastrophic Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities

Colorado residents are all-too-familiar with Interstate 70, the major highway carrying commerce and passengers through the Rocky Mountain front range, which also serves as the main east-west throughway for long haul trucks that just pass through the state.

I-70 also serves the many Colorado Ski Resorts including Vail, Aspen, Winter Park, Keystone, Breckenridge, and others, creating weekend ski traffic that is heavy in both directions.

Winter weather on I-70 can be extremely challenging, which means traffic slows and increases the risk of accidents.

Adding to those challenges is the steep mountain pass with 7 and 8 percent grades that require the frequent use of truck run-away lanes.

For all motorists, one false move can lead to catastrophic accidents, injuries, and fatalities on our roadways. When truck drivers negligently get behind the wheel, it is a disaster waiting to happen.

Because of the dangers associated with truck traffic in Colorado, the Colorado Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Colorado State Patrol and Colorado Motor Carriers Association, created The Mountain Rules. This campaign is designed to educate truck drivers on the dangers of traveling Colorado’s mountainous terrain year-round, to help limit the number of commercial truck crashes on our roads.
