However, a truck accident lawyer can step in and handle every aspect of these claims on behalf of their client. This will include:

  • Fully investigating the incident to recover all evidence needed to prove liability.
  • Working with accident reconstruction experts if necessary to prove fault.
  • Ensuring their client is evaluated by trusted medical and economic experts who can calculate total expected losses.
  • Vigorously negotiating with trucking company legal teams to recover maximum compensation.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Avondale

Accidents involving large commercial trucks occur in a wide variety of ways throughout the state of Arizona. According to data available from the Arizona Department of Transportation, we can see that there were 1,481 total crashes involving tractor-trailers as well as thousands of other crashes involving large commercial trucks. Unfortunately, these incidents led to a significant number of injuries and fatalities.

Accidents involving commercial trucks often occur due to the careless or negligent actions of the truck driver or the trucking company. This can include drivers:

  • Operating while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Operating while fatigued (failing to abide by FMCSA hours of service)
  • Operating while distracted by phones or other devices
  • Going too fast for conditions
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Not inspecting the truck before each trip
  • Allowing cargo to be loaded improperly

In some cases, the truck crash is caused by the actual company involved. Trucking companies are responsible for ensuring that all vehicles are properly maintained so that they are safe on the roadway. Failure to conduct regular maintenance could lead to vehicle failure and a catastrophic crash.

Additionally, trucking companies are responsible for implementing employment screening processes to ensure that all drivers are properly trained and safe behind the wheel.
