Lakewood Truck Accident Lawyer

A collision with any vehicle can be a scary experience. But if that other vehicle is a semi-truck, the experience can be downright terrifying. If this has happened to you, we urge you to reach out to a Lakewood truck accident lawyer for assistance.

Our lawyers have helped many victims of collisions with large trucks receive settlements to help recoup their medical bills and lost wages. Give us a call – we may be able to help you, too.

Why Truck Collisions Can Be Devastating

There are a couple reasons why truck collisions can be more devastating than typical car wrecks. First, the sheer volume of trucks increases the chances for serious injuries and fatalities. Second, there can be more people impacted by a truck collision. It’s not uncommon for multiple cars or pedestrians to become involved.

This also explains why truck collisions can be more complicated to sort through. It’s important to involve a skilled truck accident attorney early in your case, while evidence is fresh.

Preventing Crashes with Big Trucks

There are a few steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of a collision with a large truck. For instance:

  • Always pass on the left. Making sure to pass on the left is even more important when sharing the road with large trucks.
  • Create space. Just because you can see them doesn’t mean they can see you.
  • Understand trucks’ restrictions. It may be helpful to take the time to learn some of the ways trucks maneuver differently than passenger cars. For instance, did you know that a truck traveling 65 mph will take the distance of two football fields to come to a complete stop?
  • Remember, patience! Perhaps the best thing you can do is have a bit of patience when sharing the road with truckers. Remember, they are likely transporting food, supplies, and other goods that benefit your life on a daily basis.
