Commercial Trucking Accidents in Washington
Commuters traveling I-5, I90, or I-405 in Washington witness accidents involving 18-wheelers almost daily. Truck accidents are believed to cause more serious injuries and wrongful deaths than automobile accidents due to the enormous size and weight of tractor-trailers and their cargo. When commercial trucks transport hazardous materials, the potential for severe injuries and devastating accidents increase.
Trucking accidents are caused by a number of factors, including:
- Speeding drivers
- Distracted or tired drivers
- Trucks carrying more cargo than approved by law
- Debris falling from trucks
- Tire blowouts
- Truck driver negligence
- Trucking company negligence
Truck crash victims and their families are entitled to damages to compensate them for their injuries, losses and suffering. Recoverable damages include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Funeral costs
