News says that according to recent data taken from truck inspection conducted by the Washington State Patrol, some of the riskiest trucks on Washington roads keep rolling out of the Port of Seattle every single day. The large number of trucks combined with the lack of infrastructure makes it hard for authorities to inspect every single vehicle that otherwise wouldn’t be able to leave the port without being thoroughly examined.
The Seattle Department of Transportation was given the task of making sure more than 4,000 trucks that serve Seattle on a daily basis would take safety inspections seriously. The Washington State Patrol officers noticed right away that they were overwhelmed and weren’t sure if they would be able to make it. According to officers the inspections lacked in quality. Because they had to rush through each truck driver, there were moments when they would even say they had inspected a certain vehicle without actually doing so.
These unsafe trucks carry shipping containers from the port all around Harbor Island. Not only trucks and truck drivers suffer from the lack of inspection, so does the product they’re carrying and distributing.
As a Seattle personal injury attorney, I urge the authorities to take matters into their hands and turn the tables on this puzzling inspection issue Washington State has with trucks. Whenever you feel like you need a personal injury lawyer to respond to your every doubt regarding a possible case, don’t hesitate. The faster you call the better.
Reports from the Washington State Patrol claim that sometime after 7 a.m. on Monday, there was a one-vehicle accident on State Route 164 that sadly claimed the life of one man while leaving another man injured. News sources didn’t disclose how severe were the injuries the man sustained.
The news reports that a Bonney Lake resident, who was 26 years old at the time of the crash, was driving eastbound on SR 164. Authorities say that the driver was under the influence, which might have caused his sudden crossing to the westbound lanes that led his vehicle to leave the road and hit multiple trees.
The passenger in the car, a 27-year-old man from Kirkland was injured by the time the Washington State Patrol arrived; he was taken to the hospital immediately. According to official reports, the driver who was tragically killed was not wearing his seat belt while the passenger was.
As a Kirkland car accident lawyer, I hope that the passenger who was involved in this fatal accident may recover quickly and without any major hassles. He must know that at this time he should have the assistance of a personal injury lawyer throughout the process.

As an Everett personal injury lawyer I believe that we all should be extremely careful not to be tempted to drive while intoxicated. It’s against the law and it can always result in a fatal accident.
I sincerely wish the best to the family of the man who passed away. Personal injury lawyers are unfortunately very familiar with similar fatal accidents. The pain and suffering are not worth the drinking and driving, safety should always be our priority.
