A Trucking accident can be disastrous due to the sheer size and weight of tractor-trailers. In Kennewick, WA and the Tri-Cities area, these often-fatal accidents are common due to the confluence of highways and the large amount of farming and manufacturing taking place. The massive size, weight and force of an 18-wheeler means that accidents are almost always catastrophic and often result in death or very serious personal injury.
Trucking accidents can be incredibly complex because there are so many factors involved. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in a trucking accident, you need an experienced truck accident attorney by your side to help you fight for the justice and the compensation you are entitled to.
Trucking accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

You will need an experienced attorney to make a compelling case and fight for your rights. The attorney must ensure that the responsible parties are held liable for the accident and that the resulting damages are paid.
