Settling

Determining who is at fault in an eighteen-wheeler accident is a crucial component to settling the case. There are many potential parties that may have some legal culpability. The first to be assessed will be the driver. It is also essential to determine if the driver is a sole proprietor of the truck or is employed by a trucking company. The trucking company may also bear liability as well as the manufacturer of the truck. The shipper of the cargo may also be responsible if, for instance, the load was improperly balanced. We will examine all the factors involved in the accident to determine who is at fault, and we will build a solid case to support your claim.

Washington State follows the concept of comparative negligence when assessing vehicle accident settlements. In comparative negligence, the law recognizes that both parties may bear some responsibility for an accident. In this situation, the degree to which each party contributed to the negligence will be determined, and the settlement will be adjusted accordingly. Washington allows plaintiffs in vehicle accident cases to seek compensation even if they were partially at fault for the accident.

No matter how nice and helpful the insurance adjuster seems to be, insurance companies have one priority: their profits. Oftentimes the victim of a trucking accident has no idea what their case is worth or how much their injuries could cost in the future when they require ongoing medical care or leave permanent damage. Other types of damages that may not be readily apparent can also make it an unwise move to settle quickly with the insurer or responsible party who has an interest in closing the books on an accident case as quickly as possible to try and limit their financial responsibility. If you book a free consultation with the Brumley Law Firm our team can assess your injuries and the specifics of your case to ensure that you will be fairly compensated.

The first consideration after any accident is to seek emergency medical care if needed. If you are able, it is an excellent idea to record as much information as possible about the incident. Photographs, videos, and even hand-drawn diagrams can be beneficial. Write down the contact information for all parties involved in the accident as well as any witnesses. Get the name and information of the owner of the truck. Write down or record any statements made by those involved or witnesses to the accident. Note the road and weather conditions. Contact the police to report the accident and obtain a copy of the report.

Like any accident case, your truck collision must be individually assessed to determine its value. An experienced injury attorney will evaluate the specific facts of your case as well as any medical bills and expenses you have incurred. Additionally you might be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, repairs to your vehicle, lost wages, loss of ability to generate income and loss of consortium. The value of your settlement can vary widely depending on the extent of your injuries, both physical and emotional, and your associated financial losses.

We look forward to meeting you and to discussing your case. We take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and get to know you in a friendly, no-pressure setting. We will also want to learn about your accident and any related injuries. It is often helpful for you to bring any documentation you currently have so we can gain a more thorough understanding of the situation.

Factors in Settling Personal Injury Cases

Like any for-profit business, trucking companies are interested in protecting their profits and will vigorously defend themselves against paying out monetary damages. Trucking companies often have lawyers at the ready to protect them as well as investigators and other personnel to assist in limiting their exposure to litigation. We know the devastation that can follow an accident involving a commercial truck. We are committed to holding them to high safety standards while recovering the maximum compensation for your injuries.
