Attorney Handling Complex Truck Accident Claims
18-wheeler accident claims are not the same as car accident and other motor vehicle accident claims. With the complex regulations involved in the trucking industry and the catastrophic nature of these accidents, trucking accident litigation should only be handled by a lawyer with experience handling these cases. If you have been in a trucking accident, you need to work with an experienced truck accident lawyer.
At the Law Office of David A. Williams, we have the experience, knowledge and tenacity to help you. Attorney David A. Williams has been handling tractor-trailer accident claims and other motor vehicle accident claims since 1981. From our Bellevue office, we represent clients throughout Eastern Washington.
One of the primary complications in truck accident claims is the intense regulations that those in the trucking industry have to follow. At the Law Office of David A. Williams, we explore all of the possible violations of the trucking laws, including:
- Improper loads: Some drivers will carry loads above the legal limit, and in other cases they fail to secure their loads properly.
- Fatigued driving: Many truck drivers will work hours beyond the mandated limit, decreasing reflexes and reaction times and increasing the danger for other drivers.
- Driving under the influence: Obviously, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious risk for everyone on the road, and this danger is increased with the size and speed of an 18-wheeler.
- Poorly maintained vehicles: Drivers and trucking companies are required to maintain their trucks meticulously.
At the Law Office of David A. Williams, we search drivers’ log books and all other evidence to find any infractions that could establish liability. When we can find negligence of this kind, it helps build strong cases for our clients. We can use this advantage to obtain full and favorable compensation for you.
