Contact Herschensohn Law Firm, PLLC, today for a free consultation with a Washington truck accident lawyer.
When a fully loaded semi-truck and a passenger vehicle collide, the occupants of the car or SUV often end up much worse off than the trucker. Sometimes, the car could get stuck underneath the trailer. Or, its occupants may be flung from the vehicle due to the force of the impact.
Internal bleeding, crushing injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries, and multiple broken bones that you may suffer from a truck crash can leave you incapacitated for weeks or even months. Medical bills pile up while you’re left in pain, not knowing where to turn.
A Washington truck accident lawyer can help you seek justice and demand compensation from the truck driver and possibly the trucking company. If you’ve been hurt in a wreck you didn’t cause, you have rights – and we’re here to protect them.

A truck injury accident lawsuit can include compensation to cover your medical care and future medical needs, like physical or occupational therapy. It can also include covering lost wages from time missed at work, pain and suffering from your injuries, and the emotional trauma you experienced from the accident.
