- Highway 11 — Highway 11 runs between Pendleton and Walla Walla, Washington. This 34-mile highway is single-lane in each direction with few exceptions and is heavily traveled.
No matter where your accident occurred in Oregon, Steve can help you. Injury cases involving semitrucks tend to be complex because of the extent of damages and injuries that typically occur. He has experience holding trucking companies accountable when they cause harm to people and property. He is also able to help families who have lost someone in a fatal trucking accident (wrongful death claim).
Help from an attorney during the accident investigation: Typically, after a trucking accident occurs, the trucking company sends its own investigators to the scene of the accident to start building its case. It is important that you have an experienced advocate by your side to ensure that your rights are protected during the investigation process.
