Helping 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Victims Seek Justice
Were you or a loved one involved in an 18-wheeler crash? You may be entitled to compensation. An experienced Denver truck accident attorney can help you recover your rightful damages.
In and around Denver, accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks are an all-too-common occurrence. On I-70, Highway 470 and other roadways throughout the area, drivers must be constantly vigilant to protect themselves and their loved ones as much as possible.
Unfortunately, in many cases, there is simply nothing that passenger vehicle drivers can do to avoid being hit by an 18-wheeler truck. These are huge vehicles – weighing as much as 80,000 pounds – and they require both skilled driving and constant maintenance to keep them safely on the road. Tragically, when truck drivers, truck manufacturers and trucking companies make mistakes, it is usually innocent victims who pay the price.

Serving Denver-area residents for more than 20 years, the personal injury attorneys at Levine Law provide experienced and compassionate legal representation for 18-wheeler truck accident victims and their families. Led by firm founder Jordan Levine, our personal injury team has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. This includes a $770,000 court verdict for a client who suffered neck and back injuries in a truck accident, and a nearly $2 million settlement for a couple who sustained back injuries requiring surgery in a rear-end truck collision.
At Levine Law, we are passionate about what we do, and we stand firmly in our belief that our clients always come first. We are available 24/7 if you have questions, and you and your attorney will work as a team so that you can make informed decisions while we fight for maximum compensation.
Common Factors in 18-Wheeler Truck Accidents
With their sheer size and weight, it does not take much for an 18-wheeler truck to cause a serious accident. From a faulty brake job to a momentary lapse in concentration in traffic or on Denver’s snowy winter roads, almost anything that goes wrong has the potential to cause a major collision that results in life-changing injuries. At Levine Law, we represent clients who have been injured and lost loved ones in all types of 18-wheeler truck accidents, including those resulting from:
- Cargo loading errors
- Distracted driving (communicating with dispatch, texting, navigating, or watching videos behind the wheel)
- Driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or medications
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Fatigued driving
- Following too closely (tailgating)
- Inadequate and faulty truck maintenance
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Truck defects
- Truck driver negligence
- Violations of federal truck safety standards
Regardless of what happened, after any type of truck accident, it is important that you speak with an attorney about your rights. Commercial truck accident cases are complicated, and the trucking companies and their insurers know how to minimize victims’ claims for compensation. At Levine Law, we put experience on your side, and you can rest assured that we will not stop fighting until we win the compensation you deserve.
