When trucking accidents happen, insurance companies will have agents that immediately try to contact witnesses and people injured in the wreck. These agents are not looking out for your interests, regularly these representatives sometimes try to pressure people who have been injured to make admissions that will be used against them later if a settlement is not reached to the satisfaction of the insurance company. Semi-truck or trucking accidents are very complex and special rules and regulations apply in these cases. It is important to consult with an attorney that is familiar with trucking cases.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations allow trucking companies to dispose of critical information within a relative short time period after an accident. If you have been involved in a trucking accident, it is very important that you consult with an attorney a soon a possible. I have experience in handling trucking cases, call me, attorney Gregory G. Leavitt of Grand Junction, Colorado.
Semi-truck accidents cause extreme devastation for the victims and happen on our roads in Grand Junction, Colorado and along the Western Slope every day. A vehicle with a gross weight over 10,000 lbs. is considered a commercial vehicle. Semi-trucks (tractors) and many of the trailers semi-trucks tow, weigh in excess of 80,000 lbs. This extreme weight causes extreme devastation resulting in serious injury or wrongful death.
Often the driver of a semi-truck has been over worked and pressured by the company with unrealistic and unsafe demands in effort to maximize profits while endangering people we love every day.
