Truck Collision Injuries
While a negligent truck driver may have the physical encasing of a large truck as protection during a collision, the impact of a truck striking the passengers of another vehicle or other innocent bystanders can be catastrophic. A large truck usually weighs anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds, and car passengers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians are always at high risk of sustaining spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, severe burn injuries, other serious injuries, or dying anytime they are involved in a serious accident with an 18-wheeler truck, a tractor-trailer, a big rig truck, a semi-truck, a garbage truck, or any other large-sized vehicle.
Truck companies and their insurance companies are experts when it comes to minimizing liability in motor vehicle accidents involving serious injuries or wrongful death. They may send a representative to the accident scene immediately after a crash to engage in “damage control” and try pressuring you into signing a form releasing them from responsibility. There have even been truck crash cases where defense experts have contacted the investigating detective in an effort to place their own “spin” on the motor vehicle accident report.
Washington Truck Accident Attorney Williams is a former insurance claims adjuster and he understands the way trucking companies and insurers operate. He can prevent the defense from tampering with any evidence and unfairly influencing the results of an investigation. He also knows how to examine the truck driver’s logs and other key documents to determine whether the truck driver violated state or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration standards.
Mr. Williams believes that being 10 times more prepared than the defense is a key factor when negotiating a settlement that will fully compensate the victim for his or her damages. In the event that a settlement cannot be reached, he will be more than ready to file your truck accident lawsuit in court and argue your case before a jury. He will also make sure that the negligent truck driver, his or her truck company, the insurance company, and any other liable parties do not escape the responsibility of covering your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
