Well-known for its peach orchards and its wine vineyards, Palisade is a beautiful spot of Colorado tucked in Mesa County, Colorado. But while this small city may be famous for its prolific agricultural scene, there are also hundreds of trucks that pass through Palisade, many of which are transporting peaches and other goods. While these trucks play an important role in Colorado’s economy, they can also be dangerous.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a Palisade truck accident, our Palisade truck accident lawyers at the office of the Cimarron Ridge Legal Group can help. Reach out to us today for a free consultation and an overview of your options.


Injuries from a Truck Accident

The destruction can be catastrophic when a truck and a smaller vehicle collide. The smaller vehicle will almost always be destroyed, as the amount of force involved in a collision involving a large truck is much greater than in a collision involving two smaller vehicles. Common injuries that may be incurred by the occupants of the smaller vehicle include:

  • Neck and back injuries;
  • Facial injuries;
  • Soft tissue injuries.

Injuries aren’t always physical, but psychological and financial, too. Physical injuries like those listed above can lead to high medical bills and lost wages. A victim of a truck accident may also suffer post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, or anxiety following the crash. Our lawyers will advocate for your right to compensation for the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses.

Liability for a Truck Accident

One of the primary jobs of our Palisade truck accident lawyers is to determine liability for a truck accident and related damages. When you hire us, we’ll investigate your case. This means talking to witnesses, reviewing accident reports and any footage that exists, analyzing truck “black box” data and drivers’ reports, and hiring accident reconstruction experts, vehicle design experts, and anyone else who may be relevant. Parties who may be found liable for a crash include the truck driver, the trucking company, the shipper or loader of cargo, a third-party driver, or even a truck or truck part manufacturer. We’ll get to the bottom of who’s to blame and work hard to prove their fault. We handle all elements of your case, including settlement negotiations and litigation if necessary.
