Consider the following truck accident statistics for a sobering perspective on how these crashes affect our highways every day:
Washington’s Most Dangerous Truck Routes
Listed below are some of the high-traffic areas in Washington where a truck crash might be most likely to occur. We represent clients in all the following areas as well as the rest of the state and across the country.
Car and truck drivers along these routes should exercise special caution. Even for the most cautious drivers, though, a life-altering truck wreck can come out of the blue with no regard for rhyme or reason — especially if someone else’s negligence played a role in the crash.
When A Truck “Accident” Isn’t an Accident
Because trucks are so common on our roads, even the most careful driver can become the victim of a devastating truck wreck. At Seattle Truck Law, PLLC, we know from experience that most large truck crashes are not just “accidents.” Too often, a thorough investigation reveals that tragic truck wrecks are caused by some type of negligence, including:
- Poor driver performance, often due to inadequate driver training
- Distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Speeding or other reckless driving, frequently fueled by strenuous scheduling demands and deadlines
- Driving while drowsy or even falling asleep at the wheel, often due to violating hours-of-service and rest break regulations
- Poor truck maintenance, including worn brake systems, deflated tires, and shoddy repairs
- Load-shift accidents due to improper loading and securing of goods
When a truck driver or trucking company’s negligence leads to life-altering injuries for you or a loved one — or even the tragic death of someone you love — you can’t count on justice from the insurance company, whose only goal is to make your case go away as quickly and cheaply as possible.
You need an experienced trucking accident attorney who will stand up to the insurance companies and hold the negligent parties accountable. You need a legal advocate who not only understands the complex legal details of truck wreck cases, but also knows how to help families come together and heal in the aftermath of a tragedy.
Seattle Truck Law Attorney Morgan Adams is that advocate for victims in Washington state.
