Truck Accident Lawyers in Tacoma

Truck Collision

There is no denying that being injured in a truck accident is an overwhelming experience – during the crash itself but also during the months or years, to follow.

You may already have a lot on your mind, and the thought of filing a personal injury claim or pursuing a lawsuit can seem like more stress than you need in your life. However, if you have a legitimate case, not taking a stand may potentially cause you more grief in the long run. While it is important to weigh your options and know your legal rights, the decision to seek help from a lawyer and fight for justice can only be made by you and your family.

Is Legal Action Right for Me?

Unfortunately, collisions with commercial trucks are often violent and serious because they can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, which can inflict catastrophic injuries as a result. As a survivor of a truck accident, processing the physical, emotional, and financial consequences you are currently facing is difficult enough without thinking about the obstacles that still lie ahead. When lives change forever and reckless behavior is to blame, no amount of money can give you back your old way of life. With that being said, justice can be found and compensation can help you and your family take the steps necessary to rebuild.

Types of Compensation to Recover

Depending on the details surrounding your accident and injuries, you may be able to obtain compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include past and future lost income, surgery costs, hospital fees, and other monetary losses. Non-economic damages include loss of consortium, emotional distress, pain, and other losses.

Punitive damages may be awarded in a case where significant negligence is identified in which those responsible are expected to pay a larger fee as a form of punishment and prevention of future incidents of oversight.

Building an Effective Case

Even if you know who the responsible parties are, proving fault in a truck accident case is complex. Trucking companies have their own lawyers and insurance companies working to protect them at all costs. It is critical that you have a reliable and skilled attorney on your side gathering the appropriate evidence, consulting with the right experts, and dedicating the time to get to know you and how your life has been affected. Whether your accident was caused by a distracted truck driver, a negligent trucking company, a defective truck part, or a dangerous roadway, help is available to determine the best course of action for a successful case result.
