The hidden value in hiring an experienced truck crash attorney (immediately)

I’ve been a plaintiff’s lawyer for more than 30 years, so of course I believe that hiring a lawyer is usually the right move for victims of trucking and automobile crashes. But aside from my (admittedly biased) perspective, there is actually a very good reason for hiring an experienced truck crash attorney as soon as possible. You need your own investigator. With very few exceptions, when a crash involves serious injuries or fatalities, a law enforcement investigation begins immediately. When a crash involves serious injuries or fatalities, and a semi-truck, a specially trained team conducts an enhanced and detailed investigation. Most of the time, law enforcement investigations get the facts and conclusions right. But there are times when we have had to

Why we say “crash” instead of “accident”

 We have updated the language on and to use the word “crash” instead of “accident”.  Here’s why we want to use crash, not accident. There is a public health crisis on the roads. More than 35,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. last year. 35,000 is the entire population of Lynnwood, Washington. If everyone in Lynnwood—or in Bothell, or Walla Walla—died in one year, there would be a massive public outcry. We would demand answers, accountability, and changes. We have all become too accustomed to senseless deaths and injuries on U.S. roads. This is a public health crisis. Coluccio Law does not accept the labeling of a public health crisis as a series of “accidents.”

Washington Truck crashes

Over the past month, there have been several truck crashes in the Pacific Northwest. They include a semi truck that careened into several construction trucks parked along the shoulder of I-5. Another, involved a tanker truck that overturned on SR 405 in Bellevue. Yet another, involved a semi that went off the road, hit several trees and caught fire killing the driver. What seems common in each of these crashes is that the truck driver lost control of his truck and trailer.  Speed, inattentiveness, lack of training and the failure to use defensive driving skills are some of the factors that contribute to a truck driver losing control of his truck and trailer.
