SEATTLE TRUCKING ACCIDENTS
Large trucks, also called tractor trailers, semis, or big rigs weigh around 10,000 pounds. They pose a significant threat due to their size, particularly when operated by negligent drivers, therefore Seattle trucking accidents typically involve some of the most devastating and fatal injuries on the road. Although trucks comprise around 3% of vehicles in the U.S. they are involved in 12% of all fatal accidents.
A truck can strike a vehicle with the force of 20 cars, leading to catastrophic injury for the affected party. As a result, accidents of this nature can lead to complex litigation between large commercial trucking companies, big insurance providers, and severely injured victims and their families.
It can be a daunting situation for an injured victim to find themselves fighting an uphill battle against large companies with seemingly endless resources. Do not feel like you are all alone. The Seattle personal injury lawyers at Bradley Johnson Attorneys have made it our cause to represent people in circumstances just like this.
