Why Hire a Tacoma Truck Accident Lawyer from Strong Law After a Truck Crash?

Your focus should be on recovering from your injuries. Injuries received in a truck accident are often serious ones, such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries and paralysis. These are often life-altering injuries that require months, even years, of recovery. Some injuries prevent people from returning to work or doing their usual type of work.

The truck accident lawyer that you speak to when you come to Strong Law for your free consultation understands your frustration and the impact your devastating injuries have had on your life.

Working with our Tacoma truck accident lawyers allows you to participate in your treatment or therapy and focus on your recovery, not on dealing with insurance companies or the at-fault party.

Strong Law truck accident lawyers focus on considering all types of losses that you have or may face in the future because of a truck crash. Do not take a quick settlement from the insurance company of the other party. You may be selling yourself short if you do so. Insurance companies and trucking companies want to pay the least possible amount when they are liable for a truck crash.

Let the experienced team of Tacoma truck accident lawyers at Strong Law work to get you the best possible outcome in your case. Contact us at 206-737-7168 today.

How We Can Help Tacoma Truck Accident Victims

Do not think that you can pursue compensation for your injuries on your own after a truck crash and get the best outcome. Statistics show that 95% of personal injury lawsuits result in a settlement without the case going to trial.

A professional, experienced truck accident lawyer at Strong Law knows how to go after the guilty parties and hold them accountable when negotiating a settlement.  

The Tacoma truck accident lawyers at Strong Law will explain the role of negligence to you, and how it applies to seeking compensation. When we look at the actions or fault of the truck driver, we look at circumstances where we can assign fault, which include:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Speeding
  • Driving too fast for weather conditions
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigue on the part of the truck driver
  • Exceeding allowable hours of driving or exceeding driving hours without breaks.

Trucking companies that push drivers to continue driving, even when they are tired or have driven too many hours, can be held liable after a truck accident. Trucking manufacturers or parts companies can be held liable if they manufacture or install defective parts on the truck. Your truck accident attorneys know how to research these things and discuss your case more in depth.

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

Types of Compensation a Tacoma Truck Accident Lawyer Pursues for Clients

Many people are unlikely to know there are different forms of compensation. Every case is different, and we always provide personalized, professional service when representing our clients.

The attorneys at Strong Law pursue all the compensation that you may be eligible to receive after a truck accident.

Economic damages refer to your actual damages, such as lost wages, medical expenses, the cost of medical treatments and therapies, and burial costs. Non-economic damages, defined by the Revised Code of Washington (RCW), include non-monetary losses, such as disability or disfigurement, pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of companionship. You can also seek punitive damages after a truck accident.

Negligence Is Often a Primary Factor in Truck Accidents

Do you believe that the truck accident that you or your deceased loved one was involved in was caused by negligence? The negligence of truck drivers and trucking companies is often a primary factor in truck accidents in Washington.

Negligent truck drivers are not the only at-fault party in many truck accidents. Your Tacoma truck accident attorneys may be able to pursue a case against the trucking company that hired the driver or the truck owner. You are not alone if you were involved in a truck accident in the Tacoma area.

Contact a Tacoma truck accident attorney at Strong Law by calling 206-737-7168 as soon as possible after your accident.

When Washington State provided the Freight Transportation Overview section in its Transportation Resource Manual, it indicated that Washington relied on multiple modes of transportation to move the more than $508 billion in domestic freight through the state in 2015. The primary mode of transportation was by truck, with around 60% of all domestic freight being moved by truck. The report also revealed that the highest volume of trucks was near Tacoma, with nearly 16,000 trucks traveling in and around the Tacoma area every day. The sheer number of trucks and their size and weight on the road may increase the likelihood of truck crashes.

Reaching out to Tacoma truck accident lawyers at Strong Law who know how to aggressively pursue justice for their clients is the ideal way to receive compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Questions Clients Frequently Ask Our Truck Accident Attorneys After a Truck Accident

People often have questions after being involved in a truck accident caused by negligence.

Why should I file a claim after a truck accident?

Trucking companies or their insurance companies often contact truck accident victims soon after an accident and offer an immediate settlement. It may look good, because you have lost wages and medical expenses, but the settlement is likely to be far less than your deserved compensation. Contact the Tacoma truck accident lawyers at Strong Law right away.

What should I do when the trucking company or their insurance company contacts me?

Do not discuss details of the truck accident with the trucking company, their insurance company, or any attorneys except for your own truck accident lawyer at Strong Law. Refer any of these parties to your truck accident attorneys.

What is the cause of most truck accidents?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) indicates that drivers are the leading cause of truck accidents. The report found that drivers were responsible 87% of the time, when considering critical reasons for truck accidents. Critical reasons include things like decision-making, non-performance, performance and recognition. Critical events leading to a truck crash can include the driver traveling out of their own lane or loss of control because of things like driving too fast for conditions, cargo shift or vehicle systems failure.

Should I take an immediate settlement?

Do not take an immediate settlement offer from the trucking company or from their insurance company. Insurance companies know that offering what seems like a large amount of money to an injury victim is likely to appeal to the victim. The amount offered is often far less than the injury victim deserves for their current and future losses. It is only when you contact a truck accident lawyer that you can feel confident you are getting the full compensation you deserve for your losses.

What Is the Value of My Case?

The value of an injury case depends upon many factors related to the extent of your injuries and any other losses associated with your claim. You may have medical bills, lost income, costs associated with pain and suffering, among other possible damages. To learn the possible value of your case, contact the team at Strong Law. In a free case evaluation, we’ll let you know how much your case may be worth.

What Are Your Hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
