Proven Truck Accident Lawyer in Colorado

Were you or a loved one in an accident with a semi or tractor trailer truck?

Denver truck accident attorney Mack Babcock is ready to be your ally in a tough battle.


Truck accidents are one of the most frightening types of accidents a person can experience. They typically result in far greater injuries than car accidents, yet occur just as often.

Although an accident involving a large truck can occur in a split-second, the effects from a collision can last a lifetime. The first thing you need to do immediately following an accident with a large truck is to seek medical attention for you and your passengers. Once you've done this, you may need to determine if the truck driver was at-fault for the accident in order to obtain compensation for injuries, property damage and pain and suffering.

Unlike a car accident – where you're only up against a driver and possibly their insurance company – in a truck accident, you battle the driver, the trucking company, and the insurance company.

If you've been injured in a truck accident, you need a lawyer who is capable of taking on the complex, involved process to win the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Contact Colorado truck accident attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm today for a free consultation. If you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, see wrongful death.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Colorado

Large, commercial trucks operate under much different rules than regular drivers. Due to their large size and weight, truck drivers must observe certain time limits and other rules designed to protect other drivers on the road. Unfortunately, these rules are not always followed, which certainly provides grounds for seeking damages.

Drive-time limits are often the most violated rule. Perhaps the driver is under a lot of pressure to get a load to its destination by a certain time, or they're trying to stretch their drive time so they can get home. Regardless, driver fatigue is as dangerous as driving under the influence — except this danger is magnified by ten when it involves a large tractor-trailer rig.

Other top causes of truck accidents include:


  • Speeding
  • Unfamiliarity with roads
  • Illegal and prescription drugs
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Distracted driving
  • Road rage
  • Uneven cargo load
  • Inadequate training

In negotiating claims related to your Colorado truck accident, you want to be sure your attorney is familiar with federal trucking regulations and laws. Our truck accident lawyers know that these laws and regulations are often violated significantly by the trucking company.

Some of the important responsibilities of your truck accident attorney is as follows:

  • To discover whether the number of hours on the road by the driver exceeded those allowed by federal law

  • To prevent the trucking company from destroying evidence
  • To reconstruct your truck accident

You'll need a truck accident attorney who is familiar with Colorado and federal law and trucking rules and regulations, and who will protect your rights and make sure you receive the damages and compensation you're entitled to.

"Mack did a great job and was only lawyer to take case since Colorado laws are very poor for injured workers. I was very frustrated to learn how bad the state of Colorado laws are. Mack was patient explaining what the state allowed for injured workers. Mack explained how he works every year to try and get new laws in place for injured workers. Knowing what Mack told me. I have to laugh when i see the tv commercials for personal injury lawyers saying we will take your case. Mack did a very good job. Hopefully Dr John Burris and others like him will be subject to the plenty of the law one day."
