Trucking accidents often involve severe or catastrophic injuries due to the sheer size of these massive vehicles. Trucks can be more than 20 times the size of an average passenger vehicle. In some cases, trucking accidents can lead to wrongful death. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury from a tractor-trailer accident or a collision caused by a delivery truck, logging truck, or another type of large commercial vehicle in Oregon or Washington, the experienced legal team at Zbinden & Curtis Attorneys At Law is ready to help you pursue compensation to support your physical, emotional, and economic recovery.
Determining Liability in Oregon Trucking Accidents
Determining liability in truck accident claims can be particularly complicated. Unlike other motor vehicle accident claims, truck accident claims typically involve more than one at-fault party. For instance, trucking accident claims may identify more than one at-fault party, such as the driver who caused your accident, the trucking company that employs the driver, the company that owns the truck’s cab or trailer, the company that loaded the truck, or the company that manufactured the truck. Due to the complexity of trucking accident claims, we recommend enlisting the support of our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys to help you determine the most strategic path forward.
Negotiating a Favorable Truck Accident Settlement
As you move forward with a trucking accident claim, you may find the process frustrating and intimidating. Many trucking companies and their insurance companies will do everything they can to discredit or undermine your claim in an attempt to protect their bottom lines. Rather than navigating these communications alone, you can enlist one of our skilled trucking accident lawyers to handle the negotiations on your behalf. Our experienced attorneys understand the tactics these companies use to deny you the total amount of compensation you need, and we will fight aggressively on your behalf to obtain a fair and favorable settlement. Our goal is to maximize the settlement offer to ensure you have the support you need to start rebuilding your life.
