Truck and Bus Accidents

Trucks are bigger, heavier, and harder to maneuver than cars. In addition, trucks take longer to break and have larger blind spots. It’s no surprise that large trucks, SUVs, semis, pickups, and 18-wheelers cause more damage and greater injury when involved in highway accidents and crashes than automobiles.

In fact, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation, heavy trucks were responsible for 13 percent of all fatalities and 5 percent of all debilitating injuries in Washington State in 2006. All told, 81 people were fatally injured in truck accidents that year while 163 people received serious injuries. A more sobering statistic is that collisions involving heavy trucks have increased by 15 percent in the last two years, with a staggering 8,550 truck accidents recorded in the last year alone.

Serious injuries stemming from truck accidents can have a number of long-term consequences – the trauma and hardship of a truck crash does not end after the initial impact. Often, truck accident victims will struggle with piles of medical bills, weeks or months of missed work, chronic injury, and lingering emotional issues. In addition, when truck accident victims attempt to seek support from their insurance companies, they often find that their claims are delayed, denied, or paid less than the amount they need to stay on their feet.

At the Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC, an experienced Washington truck accident attorney works to ensure that you receive the financial support that you need in order to make the best and fullest recovery possible. Being involved in a truck accident and then attempting to seek financial support from the insurance company can be stressful, confusing, and intimidating – having a professional, specialized, and experienced attorney at your side will make all the difference when seeking compensation and the ongoing financial security you need for your family.

Each day, especially along I-5 and I-90 and Highway 18, trucks are involved in serious crashes and are causing debilitating, long-term injuries in Washington State:

• A boom truck, dump truck, compact car, and tractor trailer collided in Snohomish, resulting in a woman being airlifted to a Seattle hospital and a man receiving serious head injuries.
• Two were injured on Highway 97 when a pickup truck and motorcycle collide, with one victim receiving facial lacerations and the other sustaining leg and ankle injuries.
• A man was injured on Highway 12 when a truck hit his motorcycle, causing injures and forcing the man out of work for at least a month.

Truck accidents happen every day in Washington – and insurance companies bank on the fact that many of those filing insurance claims will not act if their claims are initially denied. Don’t be fooled into thinking that your case does not hold water.  Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma truck accident and semi-truck accident attorney Andrew Kim has over 15 years of experience with personal injuries relating to truck accidents – and before he became an attorney, he worked as a claims adjuster for an insurance company. He has inside knowledge of how insurance companies work and he has a number of strategies in place for making the system work to your advantage.

Even though you were covered by an insurance policy at the time of your accident, and even though you may rightly deserve compensation to cover the costs and damages incurred by your crash, the insurance company may still deny your claim. Be sure to have a hard-hitting, knowledgeable lawyer at your side to make certain that you are receiving the financial support that you need in the wake of your truck accident.
