Trucking companies are obligated to follow the rules that the government has set down for its drivers and trucks. In 2005, the Washington State Department of Transportation issued a report about the Transportation Partnership Program that sees to it that the roadways and highways are maintained so that safe travel can be had by all.
Truck accidents are no laughing matter. This 50,000 pound machine is bearing down on you and you have nowhere to go to get away from it. The authorities in Washington take this safety issue very seriously. The classification system that the state has set up, the Washington State Freight and Goods Transportation System, regulates the freight volume of all trucks and other modes of transporting goods. The Washington Department of Transportation uses this and other scales and methods to determine and designate freight economic corridors that is called the "Freight Mobility Plan."
Being involved in a car accident can be unnerving or horrifying. You are injured, your car is totaled and you can't go to work because you are hurt. What do you do next? How do you heal while you are dealing with the insurance company? Can you bring a civil suit to get recompensed?
