Auto Accidents

One of the most statistically dangerous things we do on a day to day basis is drive, and you don’t even have to have a license to be put at risk by automobiles. Whether you’re a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, we will have your back when you get injured.

Roads are one of the most dangerous places a person can be, but that doesn’t mean you’re on your own if you get injured

Car Accidents

There were over 40,000 car accident-related fatalities in America in 2018. 

 

Car accidents are the most common form of automobile accidents and can be wholly devastating on a person’s life and livelihood. When a person is in a car accident they might not only be experiencing an injury, they might have just lost access to their means of getting to and from work.

 

Over 81% of Washington State’s population holds a driver’s license, making up about 2.6% of the total drivers in America. Of the 221.7 million nationwide drivers, 112 million self-reported driving drunk on at least one occasion in the past year. Those drivers are also 57% more likely to use their cellphone while driving than in 2014. The roads are a dangerous place, and it’s important that you have the right people by your side when you get injured.

Truck Accidents (Commercial)

The catastrophic damage caused by a commercial-sized truck in a collision with a car is nearly indescribable. If you or a loved one was involved in such an accident it is important that you seek the compensation you deserve. Trucks have immense power on the roads and the companies in charge of them are responsible for the actions of their truck drivers.

 

Commercial vehicles such as freight carriers and eighteen-wheelers are an unacceptable danger to other vehicles on the road when not properly operated or maintained. A number of factors can cause trucking accidents and the experienced lawyers at THWB will work hard to uncover the circumstances of your accident. When investigating an 18-wheeler, big rig or commercial truck accident, we’ll ask:

 

  • Was the driver fatigued? Did the driver have prior accidents, speeding tickets or a DUI charge?
  • Was the driver intoxicated or under the influence of drugs?
  • Was the driver using a cellphone, texting while driving or otherwise distracted?
  • Was the company negligent in the hiring and retention of drivers?
  • Was the accident a result of an unsafe or unbalanced load?
  • What were the trucking company’s safety and training policies?
  • What logbook requirements did the company have? Were driver logs falsified?
  • Were defective tires or other defective equipment responsible for the accident?
  • Was the truck properly maintained?

 

The experienced truck accident attorneys at THWB work hard to provide compassionate and effective legal representation for those injured by commercial vehicles. Call THWB today and we’ll put our experience to work for you.

 

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders are a growing and diverse group of drivers and take great risks every time they go for a ride. Unfortunately, their fellow drivers often fail to respond correctly to sharing the road with a motorcycle. Due to their exposure to the road, motorcyclists often suffer a great deal more than their car-driving counterparts.

 

Motorcycle accident injuries are often much more severe than injuries from car accidents. Motorcyclists are far more likely to be critically injured in an accident and have a higher possibility of death from their injuries.

 

We represent motorcyclists who have suffered all injury types, such as:

 

  • Broken bones & Fractures
  • Impairment of vital organs
  • Traumatic head injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs)
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Amputation of Limbs
  • Permanent Disfigurement
  • Wrongful Death
  • Soft Tissue Damage

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact THWB. The lawyers at THWB are experienced, compassionate, and dedicated, and they are ready to start working on your case.
