Blog

As trucking accident attorneys who have a passion for helping injured victims and making the highways safer for all drivers, we at Seattle Truck Law like to keep our prospective clients and the general public informed about important topics and recent news in trucking safety and truck accident law.

The trucking industry forms the backbone of America’s shipping infrastructure and is vital to our economy. However, it is also an industry that faces many challenges and concerns in terms of safe fleet operation, and regulations are constantly evolving. Some trucking companies and industry groups continue to lobby against important safety regulations in the interest of short-term profits and at the expense of highway safety. We maintain our trucking safety blog in the interest of informing the public about some of these activities, as well as providing general helpful information about the trucking industry and personal injury law as it relates to large truck and bus crashes.

Please remember that the content on this blog is provided by Seattle Truck Law for informational purposes only. Our blog does not constitute legal advice, and reading it does not form an attorney-client relationship.
