Obtaining Recovery in Your Washington Truck Accident Matter
In Washington state, there are over 3,000 truck accidents a year, according to the most recent state-wide statistics. Those accidents result in hundreds of injuries each year, and over twenty fatalities. Because the weight and force of a truck is many times greater than that of a regular car, a truck accident victim is more likely to suffer a serious injury such as:
- Loss of a limb
- Brain injury
- Spine and spinal cord injury
- Complete or partial paralysis
The financial, physical, and emotional consequences of these and other injuries can last for decades, and if you’ve been involved in a truck accident, you may be realizing that the process by which you can get the help you need can be exhausting, confusing, and intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Vancouver truck accident attorney John Lutgens has been helping accident victims like yourself get the compensation they deserve since 1992, and he will put his skills to work for you in helping you and your family recover from your truck accident.
Bringing the Responsible Parties to Justice in Your Truck Accident Claim
Despite federal and state regulations meant to improve truck safety, far too many truckers and trucking companies engage in unsafe practices leading to devastating truck accidents. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue (drivers can legally drive up to 77 hours a week, and yet many still exceed that)
- Drugs and alcohol (alcohol is involved in nearly 100 Washington truck collisions each year)
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Faulty truck equipment or maintenance
- Improper loading or overloading of freight
Attorney John Lutgens will fight to bring all the responsible parties into court to make sure that you are fully compensated for your injuries. This can include the truck operator, his employer, the owner of the truck, the truck dispatching service, and even the owner of the freight. Oftentimes, these defendants will have teams of lawyers on standby, ready to place the blame on you, the victim, but John Lutgens will conduct a full investigation of the accident and present your best arguments for recovery.
A Committed Truck Accident Attorney Dedicated to Your Long-term Recovery
Ultimately, what is important is that you have the resources you need to return your life to what it was before the accident (or as close as possible), and attorney John Lutgens has the experience, skills, and dedication to fight for all of the losses you will suffer over the course of your lifetime due to the truck accident.
In a successful truck accident case, you are entitled to receive compensation not only for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering you have already endured, but any future losses from the accident suffered in all your years to come. What this means is that you want an experienced attorney who is not just interested in getting a quick settlement offer, but who instead has the knowledge and experience to fully assess your injuries, both now and in the future, and present a compelling case for your full recovery. Attorney John Lutgens has the resources to do just that, and he is dedicated to making sure you are compensated for your injuries over the course of your life. Contact him as soon as a truck accident occurs, and he can come to you in your medical facility or home if need be to begin the process of recovery over the long-term.
