Trucking Accidents

Dedicated Washington Trucking Accident Attorney Represents the Injured

Seattle law firm helping victims seek compensation

Because trucks are heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving trucks are much more likely to cause devastating injuries and loss of human life. It is especially sad that many of these tragic accidents wouldn’t happen if truck drivers and companies adhered to even minimum standards of care. Seattle Car Accident Law Firm brings these negligent parties to justice and helps victims of accidents involving:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving behavior
  • DUI/DWI
  • Unsafe road conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog
  • Unlicensed or untrained drivers
  • Truck rollovers
  • Oversized trucks
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake failure
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Mechanical defects
  • Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers

I have experience representing the injured in all types of commercial vehicle accident cases.

Have a knowledgeable attorney by your side

To prove a personal injury claim, you must show that your injuries resulted from the defendants’ negligence. I consult respected experts with experience addressing the nuances of trucking accident claims. At trial, these professionals offer compelling testimony that educates jurors about truckers’ negligence and the resulting tragic injuries. I regularly work with:

  • Trauma doctors
  • Chiropractors
  • Forensic engineers
  • Mechanics
  • Accident reconstruction analysts

I use all available means to present a strong case on your behalf.

Attorney prepared to help

During the aftermath of a trucking accident, the responsible company often quickly sends a team of experts to the scene to investigate the accident. Their intent is to reduce the amount of money they will have to pay you. I match the immediacy of their response. My prompt investigation preserves crucial evidence — such as records of skid marks and vehicle positioning and witness statements — before it disappears. I understand the anguish that follows a catastrophic trucking accident, and my goal is to provide you with the tools you need to recover the compensation you deserve.

Obtaining appropriate compensation for your injuries

I cannot ease the heartache resulting from your losses, but I can provide you with the means for recovery. I am committed to helping you obtain damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. If you have suffered the devastating loss of a loved one in a trucking accident, I can file a wrongful death claim on your behalf. I apply extensive litigation experience and exceptional settlement negotiations skills to obtain the best possible recovery.
