Commercial Truck Accident Attorneys

Commercial truck accidents are a regular occurrence on the crowded roads across the Pacific Northwest

Commercial vehicle accidents are caused by many factors, including careless behaviors of truck drivers, and the malfunction of equipment. And when a collision with a semi truck happens, the resulting injuries and damage can be overwhelming.

Some of the most common causes of Pacific Northwest commercial truck crashes include:

Mechanical defects: This can include defective electrical systems, wheels and tires, brake systems, repair and upkeep neglect, and more.
Driver error: Drivers are required to operate commercial vehicles with 100% of their ability at all times. Unfortunately, issues like intoxication, fatigue, and poor training often result in commercial vehicle accidents.
Improper cargo loading: If the cargo on a commercial truck isn't loaded correctly and shifts during travel, the stability of the truck is jeopardized.
Environmental issues: Road maintenance and design can also be factors in commercial vehicle accidents.
