Due to the size and structure of large commercial trucks, there are many ways something can go wrong and cause a tragic accident. Balaban Law can help.
In Colorado, a commercial motor vehicle is defined as
“…any self-propelled or towed vehicle bearing an apportioned plate or having a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or gross combination rating (GCWR) of sixteen thousand one pounds or more, which vehicle is used in commerce on the public highways of this state or is designed to transport sixteen or more passengers, including the driver; and (II) Any motor vehicle designed or equipped to transport other motor vehicles from place to place by means of winches, cables, pulleys, or other equipment for towing, pulling, or lifting, when such motor vehicle is used in commerce on the public highways of this state.”
Pick-up trucks, moving vans, box trucks, vans, semi-trucks, construction vehicles, taxis, limousines and party busses may all fall under the umbrella of a commercial motor vehicle. Commercial vehicle accidents are on the rise in Colorado and both drivers and pedestrians alike are at risk for more serious and costly damages as a result of an accident with this type of vehicle.Contact Balaban Law’s team of experienced attorneys to discuss your case.
