Golden, CO (October 20, 2023) – A collision took place in the Golan area on Wednesday that left one person injured.
During the early evening hours on October 18, the Colorado Department of Transportation notified officials that an automobile collision occurred on Interstate 70.
Crash reports provided by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office show that a pickup truck in three semi-trucks collided on the interstate, blocking multiple eastbound lanes of travel.
The incident prompted officials to shut down a portion of the roadway near Colorado 470, just west of Denver.
One person was critically injured in the crash. The victim was rushed to an area hospital for emergency treatment.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope the injured victim recovers quickly.
Due to the size and weight of semi-trucks, accidents in which they are involved are often devastating. We see thousands of people injured on an annual basis as a result of commercial vehicle collisions. This type of accident can leave victims with serious broken bones, trauma to the head, and other severe injuries that require extensive medical care.
There are countless instances where people are harmed and truck accidents due to the negligence of others. After a truck accident, you must be able to identify who is responsible for the accident so that you can hold them accountable. Unlike other types of collisions, truck accidents often involve several parties who can be held liable.
In most cases, personal injury claims are filed against the driver of the truck. The truck driver’s actions often directly caused the accident to occur. This includes cases where drivers are speeding, failing to yield, or even driving distracted.
In other cases, trucking companies can be held liable if they do not hire drivers who are actually qualified to operate the vehicles. We also see many claims filed against cargo companies, maintenance companies, truck owners, and even part manufacturers. In some cases, you have the opportunity to file a claim against multiple parties who are responsible. An investigation is often needed to determine all of the parties who are responsible for the accident taking place.
After being injured in a traffic crash, it is in your best interest to seek guidance from a truck accident lawyer who can help to ensure you are able to hold the negligent parties accountable for your pain and suffering.
