Trucking companies sometimes push their limits, forcing drivers to work harder than they should, which can lead to accidents. While the truck driver may walk away unharmed in these situations, the driver and passengers in the smaller vehicle are more likely to sustain severe injuries or end up dead. If you or a loved one has been in a truck accident, or if you have lost a family member in a truck crash, our Phoenix truck accident lawyers can help you obtain the compensation you need to cover medical expenses, lost wages and any other costs associated with the accident.
Luis P. Guerra Esq. has achieved substantial settlements in cases involving trucking accidents, including two settlements in excess of $15 million. We have the experience and the knowledge to pursue your case and see that justice is done for you and your family.
Truck drivers are subject to many rules and regulations both by their companies and by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Unfortunately, these rules are frequently violated in an effort to cut costs. Truck drivers may cause accidents by:
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Distracted driving
- Driving for too many hours without the required break
- Consuming alcohol
- Taking drugs
- Being generally overworked and poorly rested.
Trucking companies almost always send a representative out to investigate the accident scene as soon as the truck driver reports the accident. This helps them mitigate the damage and makes it more difficult for you to make a claim against their insurance carrier. You need the same kind of diligent, aggressive and passionate representation on your side. Whether the truck driver caused an accident by texting or because of highway hypnosis, our lawyers know how to expose the truth and will leave no stone unturned in their efforts to do so.
We want you to talk to us about your accident caused by truck driver negligence without any concern about cost. Our Arizona personal injury lawyer representation is on a contingent basis: you are only responsible for legal fees if we are successful in recovering compensation for your losses. We serve clients throughout Arizona.
