Trucking Accidents Vs. Car Accidents

Don’t Face Aggravation From Injuries Caused In A Truck Accident Alone

Not all motor vehicles are the same. Too often, people discuss truck accidents and passenger car accidents in the same breath. The differences, though, are quite magnified. A trucking accident has key differences with a car accident. The main one is that injuries caused by a trucking accident are often much more serious.

If you’re faced with long-term injuries due to a truck accident or dealing with an insurance company that may try to shirk its responsibilities in Arizona, we can advocate for you. In Phoenix, Luis P. Guerra is an aggressive attorney with almost a quarter century of experience working in personal injury. He can make a difference if you’ve been hurt in a truck accident. You don’t have to face this issue alone.

Differences Between Truck And Car Accidents

There are a number of key differences between truck accidents and car accidents. Here are a few:

  • Catastrophic injuries: A big rig can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. If your car is involved in an accident with a truck, your vehicle stands little chance. Serious injuries such as brain trauma, broken bones, paralysis or even death may result from a truck accident.
  • Uncooperative insurance companies: Many insurers may be involved in a truck accident. This sometimes results in insurance companies attempting to minimize or deny claims.
  • Financial liability due to many potential defendants: Truck accidents can be more complicated than a car accident due to the number of parties that can be liable. The list includes the truck driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, manufacturer of parts or tires, firm that loaded the truck and company that serviced the vehicle.
  • Investigations can be complicated: Investigation into a truck accident includes a thorough review of the records of the truck driver and truck driving company as well as the truck’s event data recorders. The truck, too, will need to be inspected for any equipment failure.

I was badly injured in an accident at work. I hired a well-known attorney to represent me, but it wasn’t till Luis Guerra and his firm joined my case that things actually began to take off. Luis Guerra took my case personally and fought hard for me like I was family. I truly believe that if it wasn’t for him I would not have received the settlement that I did! He is an aggressive and HONEST attorney who will fight for what is right. His entire firm is filled with love and compassion for the victims. In the unfortunate event that you or a loved one is injured, I would HIGHLY recommend Luis Guerra.

Mr. Luis Guerra is one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. Thank God there are still people like him in the world. He carefully explained the entire process to me so I was aware at all times what was going to happen next.
