How Can I Recover Damages for My Kent Construction Vehicle Injuries?

When victims suffer injuries in a construction vehicle incident, these injuries often require emergency medical care. They may go to the nearest trauma unit via ambulance or medevac. Hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitation may be necessary. Injuries can range from relatively minor to catastrophic and include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and other head injuries
  • Spinal cord trauma and other neck and back injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of use injuries and amputations
  • Burns, scarring, and disfigurement
  • Other serious and moderate injuries

Our attorney knows how to build a case based on any of these injuries. We work with experts to understand your prognosis, future care needs, and ongoing expenses. We help our clients seek compensation for their current and future damages by:

  • Filing an insurance claim and negotiating a fair settlement, or
  • Suing the liable parties and asking the court for a fair payout

Many of these cases settle without going to trial. We can negotiate a settlement with the liable party’s insurer to recover compensation for damages such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Future and ongoing care costs
  • Lost income
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Property damages
  • Miscellaneous related expenses
  • Pain and suffering

We will identify your recoverable damages and value your claim before demanding a just payout from the insurance company. This allows us to understand a fair settlement and negotiate aggressively to recover the money you deserve. In some cases, a lawsuit and civil trial may be necessary.

What Causes Construction Vehicle Accidents in Kent, Washington?

Kent Construction Vehicles Accident Lawyer

Construction relies on various vehicles to clear land, dig foundations, move materials, and handle other tasks. When one of these vehicles causes an accident, those involved can suffer serious injuries. Some common types of construction vehicles include:

  • Delivery trucks
  • Work trucks
  • Bulldozers
  • Dump trucks
  • Front-loaders
  • Compactors
  • Backhoes
  • Excavators
  • Large trucks hauling any of this equipment

While drivers of these vehicles should have the necessary training to drive the truck or operate the machinery and follow all safety protocols, this does not always prevent collisions and other accidents. Occupants of other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and others can suffer serious injuries in these accidents on roads near construction sites or on the site itself.

Carelessness is often the main cause of these accidents. Drivers and operators violate traffic laws or safety regulations, leading to collisions or other injury incidents.

Understanding the Role of Liability in a Washington Construction Vehicle Case

Negligence is a common cause of traffic and personal injury accidents, including those involving construction vehicles. In many cases, the negligent party also bears liability. This means they bear legal responsibility for the related damages.

However, this is not always true in a construction vehicle accident case or other claims involving commercial drivers or operators. Under RCW 4.22.070, Washington recognizes vicarious liability for employers. If the driver was on the clock and handling work-related tasks when the accident occurred, their employer likely bears liability.

To this end, we file claims and lawsuits against construction companies, contractors, corporations, and others whose workers cause our clients’ injuries.

When Should I Hire a Lawyer for Accident Case in King County, WA?

As a personal injury law firm serving clients in Kent and nearby areas, we like to get started on each case as soon as possible. We encourage you to call us when your injuries stabilize so we can start our investigation. We cannot file your claim until we understand your prognosis and you reach maximum medical recovery, but we need to gather as much evidence as possible to preserve it.

Per RCW 4.16.080, we only have three years from the accident date to take legal action in civil court. If we need to sue in your case, we must do it within this time frame. Before this date, we often attempt to negotiate a fair settlement outside of court.

“Zach will always take time and give you quality advice that you can trust. Highly recommended!”
