Ellensburg Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck accident victims often face a complete disruption in their lives that lasts years into the future. Collisions with large commercial vehicles are more likely to result in severe and sometimes fatal injuries, according to research from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Consequently, those who suffer these injuries are burdened with high medical costs, loss of work, and loss of quality of life. If you were recently injured in a truck collision, you deserve a legal advocate who can fight to recover compensation for these losses.

At Herschensohn Law, the health and well-being of our clients are our priority. You deserve someone who will fight for you as if it was their own future on the line. That’s what we do. We pool our education, training and experience to pursue the liable parties aggressively. While we have the backbone to push for positive results in your case, we also want to provide peace of mind to our clients. We want to give you a voice after someone else’s negligence took away your power.

Damages You May Be Entitled to After Your Truck Collision

Our experience representing injured people in Washington has given us a lot of perspective on the effects of an accident. We want to represent you with the compassion and understanding that only experience can give. Our depth of experience gives us a better idea of what you may be going through than most.
The losses you suffer, including your personal pain, are called damages. We can pursue them as part of your personal injury claim or lawsuit. These often include:

  • Medical expenses, including the cost of emergency room treatment, surgeries, diagnostic tests, and rehabilitative care. Your attorney will also account for the cost of your future treatment so that you can reach maximum medical improvement after your settlement.
  • Lost wages, including the wages you may be unable to earn if you suffer a disabling injury.
  • Property damage, such as the cost to repair or replace your vehicle.
  • Pain and suffering compensation, including the estimated value of your physical pain, emotional anguish, and mental distress.

Each of these causes a loss in the quality of your life. While it may be difficult to assign a value to some of your more subjective losses, we will do our best to come up with an amount to help ease your suffering. We reach these estimates through careful consideration of your expenses, your medical outlook, and the emotional toll of the collision.

Wrongful Death Damages

If you lost a loved one in a truck accident, on behalf of our firm, we are so sorry for your loss. An unexpected loss can wreak havoc on surviving families as they try to heal and grieve.

Why Choose Herschensohn Law for Your Truck Accident Case?

It’s not an easy choice. When you’re suffering and are overwhelmed with the prospect of taking legal action, it’s completely understandable to give heavy consideration to who will represent you. We hope to make that choice easier.
As your advocates and representatives, we will:

  • Provide prompt legal support. When you have questions and concerns, we don’t want you to feel left in the dark. We aim to provide fast, responsive care for every client we represent.
  • Fight for an appropriate financial award. We know your losses better than the insurer. We won’t let them devalue your claim or manipulate you into accepting an unfair offer. If that means taking them to court, we won’t hesitate to do so.
  • Handle all the paperwork and filing. You have a lot on your plate. You shouldn’t have to worry about the aspects of the legal process that make it tiring and time-consuming. We will use our own time and resources to handle these tasks for you.
  • Overcome legal hurdles and fight back against bad-faith insurers. Trucking companies and other liable parties in these cases often fight hard to deny their liability. They don’t have your best interest in mind when trying to resolve a claim or lawsuit. We do. We will fight with everything that is legally in our power to protect you from these tactics and secure your financial award.

Any law firm can make statements about who they want to be. However, we can actually back up these statements with evidence of our results.

We Make a Difference for Injured People in Washington

You want to know for sure that your lawyer can do what they say. Here’s the evidence that we have what it takes to take on your case:

  • $700,000 for a mechanic who suffered a shoulder injury in a collision with a commercial vehicle
  • $1.2 million for the surviving family members of a truck accident victim
  • $ 890,0000 for a truck driver injured by another commercial truck who suffered a head injury.

The final result isn’t everything, but it means a lot to people whose lives have been altered by negligent behavior. We will pursue a life-improving settlement or court award in your case, too.

What Causes Truck Accidents?

Truck accidents are most often caused by negligent driving behaviors, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Wide-turns
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Speeding
  • Driving poorly in weather conditions
  • Failure to signal
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Exhausted driving

While the driver is often at fault, there are several other potentially liable parties, including the trucking company, the truck’s manufacturer or mechanic, and the cargo loading company. We may even be able to pursue the municipality in which your accident took place if the collision was a result of poor road conditions.
