Seattle Truck Accident Attorney
Truck accidents can be extremely devastating to those who are unfortunate enough to be involved in them. The sheer size of the vehicle, some weighing over 80,000 lbs, when colliding into other smaller vehicles can mean massive destruction, injuries and in many cases, fatalities. These collisions are far too common in the Seattle area, due to winding, icy or wet roads. Many truck drivers may have neglected their sleep in the hopes of making a little more money at their job and have diminished responses. Delivery trucks that travel back and forth on the same routes, day after day, can become less than attentive to the other vehicles around them, resulting in truck accidents. If you or a family member has been injured in such a collision, it serves your best interests to contact a dedicated attorney to assist you with your claim for damages.
Obtaining Financial Restitution
Many types of compensation could be possible if you have suffered an injury in a truck accident. Not only can a claim be made for vehicle repairs or replacement, other costs that you have incurred are also the responsibility of the person who caused the accident.
Some of the types of claims for compensation for damages may include:
- Medical costs;
- Transportation costs;
- Loss of wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of companionship;
- Treatment facility costs;
- Vehicle replacement costs;
- Disability and disfigurement; and
