Truck Accidents

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Commercial Truck Accident Attorneys

Truck accidents are among the most violent, terrifying, and deadly accidents on our roadways. If a truck driver’s negligence leaves you or someone you care about injured, the damages you suffer are likely to be life-altering. If you’ve been injured, it’s time to consult with a trusted Lynnwood, Washington, truck accident attorney.

Truck Accident Damages

The physical, financial, and emotional damages associated with commercial truck accidents tend to fall into the categories of medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. All told, the effects can alter the course of your life and reverberate into your future in unpredictable ways. To help ensure that you reach your fullest recovery, obtaining just compensation is critical.

Your Medical Costs

The massive size of semis helps to ensure that any ensuing accidents are extremely dangerous, which translates to immense medical expenses. It’s also important to note that the occupants of the other vehicle involved (other than the semi) are far more likely to be seriously injured in commercial truck accidents. Your medical costs can include all of the following (and many more besides):

  • Emergency care at the scene of the accident and emergency transportation from the scene
  • Surgery, aftercare, and hospitalization
  • Medical attention and care from doctors, specialists, and therapists
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Ongoing treatment and care
  • Prescription medications
  • Home health care
  • Adaptive physical devices
  • Physical adaptations to one’s home and vehicle

The serious nature of accidents borne of commercial truck accidents can lead to a lifetime of medical expenses.

Your Lost Wages

Even a minor injury can lead to time lost on the job and to lost earnings, but the magnitude of injuries caused by commercial truck accidents can lead to far more serious losses. In addition to lost hours and wages, you could experience a decrease in earning potential into your future – if you’re able to return to work at all. If the trajectory of your career is altered, it can be a devastating psychological blow – due to the fact that our careers are often closely associated with our sense of self.

Your Pain and Suffering

While the immense physical pain and suffering associated with commercial truck accidents is evident, the emotional pain and suffering can be both more difficult to identify and to overcome. Because of the massive size and weight of commercial trucks, these accidents generate so much violent impact that accident victims often suffer PTSD-like symptoms. These can include:

  • Fear of getting back behind the wheel
  • Flashbacks of the terrifying accident scene
  • Increased anxiety
  • The onset of depression
  • Rifts in relationships
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Emotional lability

In fact, it’s difficult to overstate the deleterious effects of the pain and suffering associated with commercial truck accidents.

Truck Driver Negligence

Truck drivers are responsible for navigating their massive vehicles safely over our roadways, and truck driver negligence is often behind deadly truck accidents. Such negligence can take wide-ranging forms, including:

  • Impairment – The law has no tolerance for impaired professional drivers, such as commercial truck drivers. Truckers who get behind the wheel while impaired by either alcohol or drugs imperil everyone with whom they share the road.
  • Exhaustion – The trucking industry is hectic, and truckers make their livings by hauling their loads in a timely manner. When truck drivers are willing to forego sleep in order to make this happen, they greatly increase the risk that a dangerous commercial truck accident will happen.
  • Excess Speed – Driving in excess of the speed limit – or in excess of the speed dictated by the condition of the road – makes accidents far more likely and helps to ensure that such accidents will be far more dangerous.
  • Distraction – The long hours that truck drivers spend behind the wheel can be boring, but paying careful attention to the road ahead and to the traffic all around is critical to driving safely. Distraction is becoming a serious concern on our highways and byways, and when truckers allow their attention to be distracted by anything other than proceeding safely, they greatly increase the risk of serious accidents ensuing. Texting is one of the most serious and prevalent forms of distraction out there.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.

Alexander L.
