Kent Blind Spot Truck Accident Attorneys
Kent’s highways are some of the most traveled in the Pacific Northwest, with traffic flowing at all hours. Tractor-trailer operators must be especially vigilant and watch for smaller vehicles on both sides as they drive. These massive trucks have much larger blind spots than standard passenger vehicles. Therefore, truck drivers who fail to take appropriate precautions can easily sideswipe a smaller vehicle next to them.
If you were injured in Kent, WA because of a truck driver’s failure to monitor blind spots, you could pursue financial compensation. The truck accident lawyers at Herschensohn Law are here to provide you with critical legal advice and support throughout your injury claim. To learn more, call us today at (206) 588-4344 for a free consultation.
After an accident with a semi-truck, your first priority will likely be obtaining medical treatment. You could spend months or even years recovering from the physical, psychological, and financial effects of the accident. In some cases, your life could be forever altered by permanent disability, chronic pain, or the loss of a loved one.
Accident victims can benefit greatly from the assistance of a skilled personal injury attorney during this time. We begin by providing a free case review to help you understand your legal rights and options. If we decide to move forward together, our Kent truck accident team will leverage their considerable resources and knowledge to build the best possible claim on your behalf.

Our Case Results Show Our Commitment to Justice for Accident Victims
At Herschensohn Law, we strongly advocate for justice and fair compensation for all truck accident victims. We aren’t intimidated by aggressive insurance tactics or threatening corporate representatives. In fact, we have won millions in settlements and verdicts against giant trucking companies and their insurers.
After being sideswiped by a truck driver who failed to monitor blind spots, the resulting injuries can affect every aspect of your life. Trucks are often 20-30 times heavier than passenger vehicles, making them especially dangerous to smaller cars on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 70% of people fatally injured in large truck crashes are driving or riding in other vehicles.
Large truck accidents are also more likely to cause serious injuries, such as broken bones, organ damage, spinal damage, paralysis, or traumatic brain injury (TBI). You shouldn’t have to pay for the losses you sustained due to a truck driver’s inattention.
