Washington accidents involving large commercial vehicles like semis, tractor-trailers, fuel tankers, buses, and dump trucks are among the most severe motor vehicle collisions in Washington and across the United States. These can involve companies like UPS, FedEx, DHL, and the USPS to name a few. Truck accidents can result in serious injuries for victims, especially if the accident was between a large commercial truck and biker or pedestrian. Despite the many laws that regulate the operation of commercial vehicles in the state, many operators ignore them, committing endless safety and traffic violations that can cost an innocent person to suffer serious injuries.
Washington truck accidents are often the result of negligence, including speeding, aggressive driving, and fatigue, as well as the result of the truck company’s failure to properly maintain vehicle or ensure their loads are within a reasonable weight. Regardless of what caused the accident itself, it’s important for you to know you have a right to obtain legal counsel.
