When seeking justice for a loved one whose life was lost in a car crash, Washington residents often lose hope at one point or another in the legal process. This is especially true in criminal cases, during which the burden of proof lays heavily on the state prosecutor. Guilty verdicts in vehicular homicide cases, such as those in which a court finds that a death occurred while a driver was under the influence of alcohol, could carry severe, lifelong consequences for the defendants.
You share the Washington roadways with a variety of other vehicles. Whether you are watching out for motorcycles or traveling alongside a semi, there are risks when interacting with vehicles you do not understand. Of course, trucks pose a greater risk than a smaller vehicle. They also operate much differently than your car or passenger truck. Understanding where a semi's blind spots are located could help to keep you safer.
