Committed Commercial Trucking Accident Attorneys in Snohomish, WA

The repercussions of a commercial trucking and auto accident are far-reaching and devastating. Injuries sustained from such an accident are usually severe, or even deadly. Commercial truckers travel all across the country, transporting heavy loads, some of which contain dangerous or flammable materials. Many of these drivers are fatigued from long hours of driving. Unfortunately, when their attention begins to slip, the results can rapidly prove to be tragic for those on the roadways.

Commercial trucking accidents are particularly tricky cases to handle. The truckers are backed by companies with infinite funds to drag out court proceedings, suppress evidence, and bully victims into settling when it is not in their best interest.

An experienced commercial trucking accident attorney’s job is to prove that the trucker was at fault in the accident and to make the insurance company see you as an individual, rather than merely a claim number. Investigations into witness reports, physical evidence, and expert witnesses will help us develop a focused, effective defense strategy for your case.

Who is at Fault in a Commercial Trucking Accident?

In a commercial trucking accident, the driver, the trucking company, or both may be legally responsible. This may be ascertained in part or wholly by the review of driver logs, maintenance reports, witness statements, police reports, or other various forms of presented evidence. From this information, your attorney will be able to determine and prove who many be held legally accountable for the commercial trucking accident in Snohomish.

Some examples of responsibility may include:

  • Truck driver negligence — Overworked or sick drivers may be influenced by fatigue or distracted on the road. Violation of hours-of-service restrictions, violation of traffic laws, reckless driving, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol also indicate legal responsibility.
  • Trucking company negligence — Failure to enforce or monitor hours-of-service restrictions, improper maintenance, pressuring employees to meet deadlines regardless of hour limits, poor records, and false records all may be cited when proving legal responsibility. Employment of truckers who have violated traffic laws, driven recklessly, or been convicted of a DUI or other felony may indicate legal responsibility of the trucking company.

Aside from our review of vital information from the scene of the accident and regarding the trucker and insurance company, our attorneys will also work closely with accident scene reconstructionists to investigate every detail of the incident in order to demonstrate exactly how the accident happened.
