Semi trucks and 18-wheelers are some of the most common trucks involved in fatal accidents. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles make them a real threat to passenger cars and motorcycles.
In Washington state, timber and logging trucks are not uncommon, but the nature of their loads makes them a potential source of serious accidents.
Negligent truck drivers:
Speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, excessive fatigue, inattention and other types of negligence on the part of a trucker may easily lead to an accident.
Negligent trucking companies:
A trucking company may also be partly responsible if the accident was due to insufficient maintenance, improper loading, poor employee training or other factors.
Commercial trucks also frequently cause significant accidents. Such commercial vehicles include garbage trucks, delivery trucks, maintenance trucks and others.
