Large commercial trucks are capable of doing serious damage to anything the come into contact with. No private vehicle can come close to the destruction wrought by a semi truck or other large work vehicle. This is why there are so many regulations in place concerning the operation of such vehicles, and why it is so unsettling when those rules are broken.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident with a large truck, please call our firm immediately. We understand how upsetting situations like this can be, but the time to take legal action is now.
Truck Accident Injuries
Both Washington and the federal government understand how much harm a commercial vehicle can do. This is why there are a number of laws in place governing commercial driving. Drivers are limited on the amount of driving they can do in a given time period and stringent standards are in place concerning vehicle maintenance.
Unfortunately, some people fail to follow the rules. Drivers will push themselves too far, or companies will demand more out of employees than they can safely deliver. Speeding may seem like a solution to make up on time and distance. Corners are cut when it comes time to perform necessary maintenance. The opportunities for carelessness and negligence are numerous and there will always be those that try to take advantage of them.
You do not have to be doing anything wrong for a truck to cause you irreparable harm. Obeying all the rules and driving cautiously are not always enough to prevent a truck accident. And when you are involved in one of these accidents, you have a significant chance of being seriously injured or worse.
