Traveling the roads of Washington is risky, especially in bad weather. Add a tired truck driver to the mix, and it can be serious or deadly. Truck drivers are often encouraged to drive longer than they are physically able to, and they may even drive distracted because of using cellphones while maneuvering in and out of traffic.
Suffering an injury or illness due to medical malpractice is terrible. The state of Washington takes the well-being of its citizens very seriously. As a matter of fact, Washington Statutes address this extensively. RCW 7.70 governs any action for damages based on an injury resulting from health care.
