Legal Help After a Truck Accident in Renton Washington

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is hard to imagine that our forward momentum can be stopped due to a commercial truck accident. We are used to coming and going, usually in our cars, from one obligation, commitment, or fun event to another. If we suffer a traffic accident, the event may be minor, causing us little inconvenience and, hopefully, no injury. However, depending on the type of vehicle involved and the circumstances of the accident, the damages and injuries suffered may be quite serious.

To become involved in an crash with a semi-truck or other large vehicle may be devastating. While the aftermath of such a collision is often overwhelming, accessing as much information as possible about your legal rights and options will help you determine what the next best step is for your specific situation.

Unique Dangers of Truck Crashes

There are many dangers on the road; however, when a pedestrian, bicyclist, motorcyclist, or driver (and occupant of course) of a passenger vehicle is involved in a collision with a large truck, that is a recipe for severe injury, if not fatalities.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 1 out of 9 road fatalities results from a truck versus passenger car accident. The majority of injuries and fatalities from a large truck accident were found in the driver or occupant of the other vehicle, not the truck. The size of a large truck is sufficient to cause damage to the other vehicle. The circumstances of the accident itself make it virtually impossible for the driver of a passenger car, motorcycle, or bicycle (and certainly a pedestrian) to escape injury when a large truck impacts them.

If involved in an collision with a large truck, it is more likely that more than 2 vehicles are enmeshed in the accident. Again, with the size of certain trucks, often striking another vehicle or an object on the road will cause the truck to buckle, sway, or overturn. In the process, all other vehicles on the road can become a target to be struck by that out-of-control truck.
