The Tragic Truck Accident in Lakewood, Colorado

On Thursday, April 25, 2019, the tragic accident occurred on Interstate 70 near Denver, Colorado. Around 4:50 PM, a truck driver plowed into stopped traffic hitting 28 vehicles; as a result, the driver failed to slow down to prevent the tragic accident. At least 10 people were taken to hospitals with unknown injuries, at least 4 of them were tragically killed.

The Texas truck driver, Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos, thought he was going to die and closed his eyes before his semi-truck slammed into stopped traffic, igniting a massive fatal fire in Lakewood, Colorado, authorities said.

Investigators say Aguilera-Mederos told them he was driving at 85 mph when the brakes failed. He allegedly tried to pull over to the shoulder to avoid stopped traffic but another semi had stopped there, an arrest affidavit shows.

Let a Lakewood Truck Accident Lawyer Help You Today!

Most truck accident victims do not realize the full scope of their losses. This is true in cases involving both severe injuries and wrongful death. Colorado law allows accident victims (including family members in fatal accidents) to recover not only their direct expenses but compensation for the physical and emotional effects of the crash as well. In many cases, this can result in substantial financial recovery.

I worked with Nick Morrow, John Sheppard, Daniel Sheppard, Patrick McGinnis, and Chris West on my maritime injury case. These guys were incredible. I... was injured badly working on a tugboat, and was forced to leave my career. These lawyers assured me I had a right to recover damages under the Jones Act, even when several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard went above and beyond. They took on costs like hiring expensive experts and taking depositions so that I could be in the best position to prove my case. I watched them handle every excuse the defense lawyers threw at me, and ultimately forced the defendant’s hand in to paying me what I deserved. Morrow & Sheppard always kept me informed and up to date on my case, and developed a personal relationship with me. I would give them the highest recommendation. I still keep in touch with them, and look forward to seeing them whenever I pass through Houston.read more

Nick Morrow and John Sheppard are the best. I was paralyzed in a work injury. Several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard hired... expensive experts, took dozens of depositions, and proved my case. I saw them in court against a team of defense lawyers, and the defense lawyers didn’t stand a chance. Morrow & Sheppard took my case all the way when nobody else would. Now my family is set up for life. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and made me feel like I was more than a number. I still talk to Nick to this day. Morrow & Sheppard exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are injured at work, call Morrow & Sheppard.read more

My experience with John, at Morrow and Sheppard, during my company’s litigation was better than I could have imagined (considering the circumstances... of being involved in litigation). What stood out to me the most, was John’s tenacity in preparation. I later realized this came from two places, one he didn’t want to lose and two (and most importantly) he CARED so much about me getting justice. I cannot stress this enough, when you are dealing with a lawyer that truly cares, then all of the other stresses I had around the case seemed to go away. I was always kept up to date with what was going on in our case, and he always made it very clear he was just an email or call away! In addition to these attributes, he also knows the law and is willing to fight for what is right! It would be tough to find another lawyer that is as highly effective, skilled, knowledgeable, ethical and has such an impeccable reputation (which is well deserved). I would recommend Morrow and Sheppard to anyone seeking out a law firm, in the event they needed counsel.read more
