Truck driving on the highway representing trucking accidents

Victims of trucking accidents often endure severe injuries.

Those injuries are exacerbated by the substantial size difference between a semi-truck and a standard passenger vehicle. While you may be entitled to compensation for a trucking accident, the process of filing a claim is intricate. The complexity extends beyond the laws involved; multiple parties are typically implicated in the accident, such as the driver, the trucking company, the insurance provider, and others.

You don't have to confront these formidable challenges on your own. At FMM, our dedicated attorneys will vigorously pursue all potential parties to secure the compensation rightfully owed for your losses.

Serious Injuries From Accidents

Trucking accidents often result in permanent injury and death.  Our Washington truck accident attorneys can advocate for your rights and assist in obtaining the compensation you deserve. Accidents typically stem from a range of causes, including speeding, brake malfunctions, drug use, driver distraction, and fatigue. Regardless of the specific reason, a Washington truck accident attorney is essential in guiding you through the intricacies of your lawsuit.

Where To Start

Accidents involving heavy trucks and tractor-trailer trucks pose a greater risk compared to car accidents due to their size. Given the potential severity of injuries, it is crucial to seek immediate emergency medical care. Contact 911 without delay and prioritize the safety of everyone involved.

At the accident scene, it is important to gather as much information as possible. Obtain the driver's name, license number, and contact details, as well as the trucking company's name and the truck's license plate number. Additionally, collect contact information from any witnesses present. It is advisable to document the accident thoroughly by taking photographs of vehicle damage, injuries, skid marks, debris, and traffic conditions. If the police are present, make a note of the accident report number provided.

When communicating with the police, refrain from accepting responsibility for the accident. It is crucial to consult with an attorney promptly. Trucking companies and insurance companies often have legal representation prepared to avoid providing any compensation. To ensure your rights are protected, it is essential to have an experienced attorney advocating for you.
