Dan Caplis has successfully represented clients in major truck accident cases in Colorado and beyond.
Truck Driver Negligence
If you were to take the wheel of a large semi tractor-trailer, you would likely be very nervous about operating it correctly, checking mirrors constantly and maintaining a safe speed. However, truck drivers who operate these massive vehicles for a living can sometimes lose sight of proper safety precautions. A negligent Colorado truck driver might cause an accident by speeding, failing to check blind spots, or by making lane changes and turns too quickly.
Lack of Training
For trucking companies, time is money. This sometimes means that unscrupulous companies will attempt to put new employees on the road without ensuring that they understand safety protocol or even have a valid commercial driver’s license. If an inadequately trained driver is responsible for your collision, the Colorado truck accident lawyers of The Law Offices of Daniel J. Caplis, LLC may take action against the trucking company.
