A Semi-Truck Hit And Damaged Overpass

A stretch of I-25 in downtown had to be closed for several hours after a semi-truck hit and damaged an overpass, according to 9 News. Despite signs more than a mile in advance of the overpass indicating overpass clearance heights and which lane commercial vehicles should drive in, a commercial truck in the wrong lane hit the overpass at Speer Blvd late in the morning. Pieces of concrete and metal rained down, damaging four other vehicles, and causing serious injury to one driver. The road was closed for about four hours, and the driver was cited for a misdemeanor criminal offense in connection with the crash.

Have you or a family member been hurt by the careless driving of a commercial truck driver? Speak with a dedicated  commercial vehicle accident attorney today.

While most commercial truck drivers are excellent, well-trained, cautious professionals, there are roughly 3,000 fatal commercial vehicle accidents annually in the United States according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Additionally, there are over 50,000 accidents involving injury, and tens of billions of dollars worth of damage done. Given the extreme size and weight of these vehicles, the potential for damage when a driver is careless, or just plain negligent, is very high. Victims of these accidents may find themselves in serious financial trouble, and in need of debt management assistance. When you are injured by this carelessness, you are entitled to financial compensation for your damages.

Contact a dedicated trucking accident attorney immediately to discuss your options if you or a loved one have been injured in a commercial vehicle accident. Recovering compensation from trucking companies is not always easy; most have insurance companies with experienced lawyers protecting the company’s bottom line. You need a personal injury attorney with a thorough understanding of personal injury law, and experience working with commercial trucking accident victims. Many commercial vehicle accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay a fee only after they successfully recover compensation for you.
