Truck Accident Attorney
There were 4,453 collisions involving heavy trucks or commercial vehicles in the State of Washington over the latest one-year reporting period. 46 of those collisions were fatal. 86 caused serious bodily injuries.
We have all witnessed semi-trucks weighing 20,000 pounds or more speeding down our highways and freeways, and making abrupt lane changes. It’s little wonder that 75% of all fatalities involving large trucks are people in the other vehicle, not the truck. There is increasing awareness that more and more truckers are driving with severe fatigue as they are pushed past the limit of human endurance by their employers. This leads to substance abuse and impaired driving as the truckers try to meet their employers’ unreasonable demands.
Handling truck accidents takes special knowledge and experience above and beyond car and auto accident cases. There are countless local, state and federal government codes, regulations and statutes that apply to trucking accidents. Only an experienced truck accident lawyer can provide the expertise needed to navigate the legal minefield related to truck accident cases.
