Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on I-70 in Arapahoe County

It's not unusual for there to be so few details available about a serious commercial truck wreck. The concern, however, is if the proper steps are being taken to eventually get all the facts. Quite frankly, authorities don't always have access to the resources needed for something as complex as an 18-wheeler accident. As a result, unless a department is particularly thorough when it comes to accident reconstruction, important details may slip through the cracks.

For victims and families, that simply won't do. They need to be sure they're getting the whole story. Not only is that important for closure, but it's important for having the tools to hold someone accountable if they're responsible for the crash--especially if those responsible are a commercial entity with vast resources to tip the scales in their favor.

That's why I do what I can to address these serious crashes whenever possible. I certainly can't say what happened here without seeing clear evidence, but I know from 30 years of experience just how crucial it is victims and families seek out the tools and allies needed to get the answers they deserve.
