If you've missed work as a result of your injury, you may be able to obtain compensation to make up for your lost wages. Earning capacity and benefits may also be factored into this settlement. To find out more about the
compensation you could potentially receive, contact a professional Washington truck accident attorney as soon as possible.
In some cases, it is possible to file a lawsuit against the shipper, especially in cases where hazardous material was involved. This type of lawsuit is particularly effective if the shipper did not alert the driver to the presence of hazardous cargo. Shippers are not legally responsible in every personal injury claim, however, so it is always best to seek the advice of a professional Washington truck accident attorney before you proceed.
Another possible liable party is the trucking company. If the truck driver has established employment with a particular company, that company may be held legally responsible for the negligence of their driver. If the truck driver is an independent contractor, your Washington truck accident attorney will need to determine the degree of supervision the company has over the driver.
