Truck Accidents: The Cause of Serious Injuries
The sheer size of a truck means that a collision between it and a smaller vehicle will almost always result in serious personal injury or even wrongful death. When a truck and car accident is the result of an act of negligence, the negligent party should be held responsible.
At Perey Law Group, our attorneys help victims of truck accidents seek full compensation. We represent people in Seattle and throughout Washington in these cases.
How do Truck Accidents Happen?
Unlike most people on the road, truck drivers are there to earn a paycheck. They have a job to do. There are laws in place that tell them how to do that job, laws that allow only a certain number of hours to be spent on the road, among other things.
In many cases, a truck accident is the result of one of these laws being broken. A truck driver may spend too much time on the road trying to get more work done. Driving while tired is a major reason for these types of accidents.
Other forms of negligence include speeding. Some acts of negligence are not the truck driver’s fault, but the trucking company’s. These include failure to maintain a vehicle or improperly loading a vehicle.
Determining Whether Negligence Took Place

Driving records may have been hidden. We know where to look to get to the truth of a matter and prove that an act of negligence caused an accident.
