accidents with government vehiclesAccording to CBS news, a garbage truck crashed into two other vehicles near Highway 287 and Arapahoe road shortly before 8:00 am during the morning commute. The State Patrol closed the road for several hours afterward to clear up and investigate the collision, which resulted in the tragic death of one person. There do not appear to have been any additional injuries.  The exact cause of the accident is unclear; hazmat crews were dispatched to the scene in case any hazardous substance leaked from the garbage truck.  There were some initial concerns that something may have been leaking, but there is no information as to whether this turned out to be the case. Have you lost a loved one in a commercial vehicle accident? Contact an experienced Denver trucking accident lawyer immediately. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, several thousand people are killed in accidents with large trucks every year. This number is not huge, compared to the number of accidents, but it is certainly far too big for the families who are left to grieve the loss of loved ones. In addition to the fatalities, there are tens of thousands of injuries, and tens of billions of dollars in property damage annually relating to commercial vehicle crashes. One of the difficulties of these accidents is that the commercial trucking companies have dedicated attorneys whose job is to protect the company’s bottom line. In the case of a traffic accident, this often means denying responsibility and paying out as little as possible in insurance claims. denver personal injury attorneyIf you have lost a loved one in a commercial trucking accident, speak with an experienced Denver trucking accident lawyer today to discuss your options.
