Commercial trucks share Arizona highways and roadways with passenger vehicles. Since commercial trucks are larger than passenger vehicles, accidents involving the two can be catastrophic. Additionally, drivers of commercial trucks tend to operate their vehicles under a completely different set of circumstances than passenger vehicles. These unique circumstances can lead to legal issues for commercial truck accident victims. A Phoenix commercial truck accident attorney at Witson Law can help you receive proper compensation for the injuries incurred due to the negligence of a truck driver.
A Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyer will carefully assess your truck accident case and will help you determine if your truck accident case was caused by one or more of the following:
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Truck Driver Fatigue
- Overload or Excessive Cargo
- Commercial Truck or Trailer Defects
- Hazardous Road Conditions
- Driving While Under the Influence of Drugs
- Distracted Driver(s)
- Reckless Driving
- Violation of Truck Company Regulations
In order to drive commercial trucks, a special license is required meaning truck drivers are usually experienced in performing their truck driving duties. However, even experienced commercial truck drivers sometimes make mistakes. It is common for commercial truck drivers to travel with heavy workloads. These heavy loads may create driving difficulties. In addition, commercial truck drivers are expected to operate their vehicles under extreme stress and lack of sleep which can be disastrous. There are occasions where commercial truck drivers are not properly trained on how to perform their job at a safe level. All of these possible causes of a commercial truck accident should be investigated in order to pinpoint the exact cause of the accident.
