Seattle Truck Accident Attorney

Truck accidents in Seattle can lead to devastating consequences for motor vehicle drivers. The size and weight difference between these vehicles can lead to severe injuries, extensive property damage, and even death to drivers — and if you are a truck accident survivor, you may need significant compensation to recover.

How to Prove a Washington Truck Accident Claim

When you file a truck accident claim, it is not likely that you will file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver directly. In many cases, you will face his or her employer and their legal representatives in the courtroom, and large corporate or government legal teams prepare for trial with strong defenses.

With an attorney on your side, you have a greater chance of collecting the evidence necessary to establish negligence occurred and successfully proving your need for compensation. You and your attorney will work together to establish the following four elements:

  1. The at-fault driver owed you a duty of care to drive safely, and the employer of the driver owed you a duty of care to follow government regulations and to ensure the truck was in acceptable condition.
  2. The at-fault party breached their duty of care to you in some way. This element will depend on the circumstances surrounding your case; for example, if the driver was drowsy at the time of the accident due to driving more hours than allowed, his or her driving logs and other trucking data can help establish this claim.
  3. The breach of care directly led to your injuries. You can prove this element by providing your medical records, surveillance footage, and expert witness testimony.
  4. You suffered damages due to your injuries you can collect in your lawsuit. Your attorney will help you calculate the amount of damages you are eligible for and compile the evidence necessary to prove your needs.

Do You Need an Attorney for Your Seattle Truck Accident Case?

While the four elements necessary to prove a truck accident case may seem straightforward, handling this claim alone can be very difficult. You will need to contact the truck driver’s employer for evidence you may not have access to, and by the time you are well enough to begin investigating your claim, this evidence may not be available anymore.

In addition, you will need to enter negotiations with the company’s insurance representatives or lawyers, complete paperwork to file your claim, and collect the necessary evidence to build your case — all of which is difficult with a recent injury. Hiring an attorney to handle your case will allow you to rest and focus on recovery while knowing that your claim will make it to the negotiating table or courtroom.
