Fatal Accident Involving 2 Semi-Trucks on I-90 Kills 2

Another car accident involving two semi-trucks has resulted in death. According to news reports a fatal Washington car accident involving two semi-trucks and two cars at Snoqualmie Pass on I-90 has resulted in the death of 2 people.

It appears a car was smashed between the back of one semi-truck and front of the other semi-truck. Our prayers go out to the families of the deceased. Less than three months ago one of client's had her daughter killed in a collision on I-90 involving semi-trucks. To say the effects of such a horrific collision are life altering is an understatement.

Families in situations like this are faced with hard decisions. An unexpected death of a loved one often leaves families with a hurricane of questions, few answers, and many decisions to be made in a short time. In times like these having a trusted friend to assist with the aftermath is key.

No one wants to think about dealing with who caused the collision, who was at fault, who witnessed the accident, and making sure key evidence is not lost. Unfortunately, that is exactly what insurance company lawyers are doing immediately following a fatal Washington semi-truck accident. Families often have to play catch up in the weeks or months following the fatal collision.  

The Washington State Patrol does a crash investigation, but that does not mean you can leave everything up to them. Police are often looking at an accident from a slightly different perspective, a criminal versus civil liability perspective. An independent investigation is necessary to make sure every piece of evidence is collected that may be needed in any future the civil case. It is not uncommon for semi-truck lawyers to appear at the accident scene with their experts to collect evidence and speak with witnesses to get statements as fast as possible. They are looking to limit liability with minutes of the accident being reported.

Because of this families should enlist the help of an experienced Washington wrongful death attorney as soon after the accident as possible. The family needs an attorney to investigate the accident, find experts to help, and collect all the evidence needed so any future wrongful death claims are preserved. This way the family has all options available to them when they are ready to deicide what to do.
