More than 4,800 people lose their lives in semi-truck accidents across the United States each year. Thousands more are left with life-altering injuries. The size and weight of semi-trucks mean victims are more likely to suffer catastrophic and debilitating injuries. When victims are injured in accidents, due to the negligent actions of others, it is crucial that they reach out to a truck accident attorney in Colorado as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
