Dedicated Washington Trucking Accident Attorneys Represent 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. Many of these tragic accidents wouldn’t happen if truck drivers and companies adhered to the laws and regulations that govern them. The attorneys at Callahan Law, P.S., Inc. bring these negligent parties to justice and helping victims truck drivers who cause accidents due to:
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving behavior
- DUI/DWI – Drugs and Alcohol
- 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-wheeler incidents
To prove a personal injury claim, one must show that their injuries resulted from the other driver’s negligence. There are expert witnesses with whom we consult on trucking accident claims, who provide compelling testimony that educates jurors about truckers’ obligations beyond those of the average driver and on truckers’ negligence, resulting in injuries to our clients. To present a strong case on your behalf, we obtain information about the driver and trucking company, and from those who have cared for you. In these cases, our lawyers may work with forensic engineers, mechanics, and accident reconstruction analysts to assess the mistakes that may have been made by drivers, the effect of those mistakes, and the failures to adhere to regulations that precede many of these collisions. Our attorneys use all available means to present a strong case on your behalf.
Attorneys and experts prepared to help
Following a trucking accident, the trucking company often quickly sends a team of experts to the scene to investigate. However, their goal is to reduce the amount of money they will have to pay you. This is why you need representation at this early stage, to preserve and obtain evidence — such as gathering data of skid marks, vehicle positioning and any witness statements while the evidence is fresh. We have experts we rely upon to investigate and testify in trucking accident cases. They are employed, to provide you with the compensation you deserve.
