Were You Hurt In A Commercial Vehicle Accident? We Can Help

A truck accident attorney who fights for the injured

Many companies use commercial vehicles to conduct their business. But when a driver or company is negligent, the result can be a serious accident that leaves people hurt. Truck accident attorney Colin Scott holds negligent parties accountable and helps injury victims recover the financial compensation they need and deserve.

The Scott Law Firm, PLLC helps people throughout Clark County, Washington who have been injured in commercial vehicle accidents. We know the impact these types of accidents can have on families. People are often left with extensive medical bills for treatment. Some cannot work due to their injuries. When another's negligence caused the accident, they shouldn't have to pay.

But recovering financial compensation can be difficult. Negligent drivers and companies often deny responsibility for the accident. Even in cases where fault is admitted, insurance companies try to pay you as little as possible to protect their bottom line. And they often have an entire team of lawyers looking out for their best interests. Shouldn't you?

You can count on Colin

That's why you need a lawyer on your side, one who is dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome. Attorney Colin Scott knows how to handle personal injury cases involving a commercial vehicle accident and will fight for your rights. He knows the tactics that insurance companies use to avoid their responsibility. He also knows how to fight back to get results.

Many commercial vehicles require specific training and qualifications to operate. There is even a specific license ("CDL") required to drive certain commercial vehicles in Washington. Common types of commercial vehicles include:

  • Vans
  • Box trucks
  • Cargo vans
  • Tow truck
  • Garbage trucks
  • Semi-trucks

If the insurance company is denying responsibility in your case, our firm can investigate your accident to find out what really happened. Colin can obtain and review pertinent documentation related to your crash, including medical records and accident reports. He also can identify and interviews witnesses, which he often does himself or working together with a private investigator. If needed, he can also consult with accident reconstruction experts, engineers, and other specialists.

Standing up for your rights

Each case is fact-specific. But Colin generally knows where to look for evidence of negligence. For example, the driver may have been operating the vehicle recklessly. The driver may have been texting, or they may have been distracted in some other way. In some cases, a driver may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Or the driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel.

The negligence of companies can also lead to a commercial vehicle accident. For example, companies are responsible for ensuring that drivers are qualified to operate their vehicles. They are also responsible for keeping vehicles properly maintained and making needed repairs promptly.

At The Scott Law Firm, PLLC we have the tools and resources necessary to build a strong case that can prove another's negligence caused a commercial vehicle accident. Colin can also identify all available damages (financial compensation) to which you may be legally entitled. This can include, but is not limited to, all past and future medical expenses related to the accident, past and future lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.

Once you make the decision to hire our firm, we will fight to hold all negligent parties accountable and recover the compensation you deserve. When insurance companies are confronted with a strong case, they often agree to enter settlement negotiations. But if they won't agree to a settlement that is reasonable, Colin will fight for you in court.

If you were hurt in a commercial vehicle accident, don't delay. It's important to get started on your case before evidence is lost or destroyed, and before the memories of witnesses fade.
