Helping You When Mechanical Problems Cause Truck Accidents
Commercial trucks often travel as much as 100,000 miles a year, back and forth across America. Long distances put a strain on semi trucks, so proper maintenance is critical to keep them performing safely and efficiently.
When proper maintenance does not occur, trucks pose a danger to other vehicles on the road. They may break down suddenly in traffic. Parts may also fly off and strike other drivers on the road.
At Coppola & Melonakis, we represent people who were injured in truck accidents caused by mechanical problems. Attorneys at our law firm aggressively protect our clients’ rights in state and federal courts by preparing each case for trial from the very beginning.
Our clients are people who have experienced crush injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in truck-versus-car accidents. We know that injury victims may spend the rest of their lives in need of personal care and may be unable to work.
Representing truck accident victims in court is a great responsibility, and we understand that our clients’ futures depend on our success in the courtroom. We are well prepared to help personal injury victims achieve the best possible results — no matter how complex or challenging the case.
Types of Semi-Truck Problem Areas
Vehicles simply do not perform as well at 10,000 feet as they do at sea level. Trucks and buses with faulty brakes, windshield wipers, defrosters and exhaust systems often cause accidents on highways such as I-25 and I-70, as well as in steep mountain passes.
We handle truck accidents that occur throughout Colorado, involving many different problem areas:
- Steering wheel and steering components
- Headlights and brake lights
- Reflective safety tape
- Rear doors
- Trailer hitches
