Every year, an estimated 15 million trucks travel more than 500 billion miles on United States freeways and highways. From produce to livestock, gasoline to consumer goods, these trucks generate $250 billion annually for trucking company owners. Yet even with this staggering profit, trucking companies still place profits before safety and routinely violate federal trucking regulations.
Trucking companies often look for ways to cut corners, in an attempt to increase profits. This can include cutting back on truck maintenance, neglecting to replace worn tires or auto parts, and encouraging drivers to drive long hours to get their jobs done. This often leads to truck drivers who are driving fatigued or under the influence of stimulant medication, and the results can be deadly to all those who share Seattle’s roads.
An estimated 500,000 trucking accidents occur each year in the United States and account for 1 out of every 8 traffic death. Yet even when a trucking company’s negligence has led to your accident, it is impossible to fight these large trucking companies without obtaining legal representation.
At Phillips Law Firm, our Seattle trucking accident lawyers have extensive experience fighting large trucking companies. Trucking companies often have large legal teams dedicated to protecting their profits and minimizing their liabilities. Our firm has the resources needed to take these large trucking companies to court and hold them accountable for their negligence. We don’t back down because we believe in obtaining justice for you.
When trucking companies are facing a lawsuit, they will stop at nothing to protect their bottom line and avoid responsibility. As such, they may falsify driving records, destroy black box data, and contact injured victims quickly to offer a low-ball settlement. Don’t let the trucking companies take advantage of you. You need to fight aggressively to obtain the compensation you need to fully recover and get your life back on track after a Seattle trucking accident.
