Olympia Truck Accident Lawyers
Fighting for Clients Throughout Washington State
Accidents with commercial trucks can be extremely catastrophic. Due to the immense size of 18-wheelers and other similarly sized vehicles, the chances of suffering serious and even life-threatening injuries in such collisions are high. Those lucky enough to survive have expensive and sometimes painful surgery, physical therapy, and nursing care to look forward to for long after the collision. If the truck accident resulted in a fatality, family members can file a wrongful death claim. Let the Olympia truck accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Harold D. Carr help you obtain what you need to recover.
Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?
When fully loaded, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. While these drivers are required to follow strict operator laws and avoid unsafe practices, they do not always obey, putting other drivers on the road at serious risk of injury.
Commercial truck accidents may be caused by drivers who:
- Drive under the influence
- Are fatigued
- Fail to comply with road and safety regulations
- Carry overloaded or insufficiently maintained cargo
- Operate out-of-maintenance trucks
When large truck operators and companies demonstrate negligence that results in injuries to others, they should be held accountable for their irresponsibility. Victims in accidents caused by their negligence often suffer injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or, in worst case scenarios, wrongful death.
