Scottsdale Truck Accident Attorney

Large commercial trucks are involved in accidents that kill or injure thousands of people each year. Nearly all of those injured are occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. Due to the size and weight disparity, passenger vehicle occupants are vulnerable to severe, often catastrophic injury when struck by commercial trucks. And, more often than not, the driver or operator of the truck is responsible for the collision.

If you have been injured in an accident with a large truck or bus you may be entitled to compensation for all costs and damages linked to your injuries. Collecting damages depends upon the unique circumstances of the incident, and whether or not someone or something else was the cause of your accident. Working with a local Scottsdale truck accident lawyer is the best way to determine who is at fault in your accident, and to collect the compensation you deserve.

When Truck Drivers or Their Truck Cause Accidents They are Responsible for Damages

All drivers on the road have a responsibility to follow the rules of the road and to drive safely and responsibly. When a driver is behind the wheel of a large commercial truck, they also must have a commercial driver’s license to demonstrate additional knowledge and training on how to safely operate such large vehicles. If a truck driver violates their duty to drive safely and responsibly, or if a trucking company does not perform enough maintenance to keep trucks safe, they will be liable for the associated damages.

Truck drivers that engage in the following activities and cause accidents will be liable for the damages:

  • Drunk or intoxicated driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy or fatigued driving
  • Vehicle or equipment malfunctions

Trucking companies are required to give their drivers enough time off between shifts to be adequately rested. When this is not the case and an accident results, the trucking company will be liable for any and all related damages that you might experience. Your Scottsdale truck accident lawyer will collect the evidence you need to prove the cause of the accident, and measure the full amount in compensation that you are entitled to. This evidence can include driver logs, maintenance records, tire skid marks, physical evidence from the scene of the accident, surveillance of dash camera footage, vehicle computer data, and more.

The stakes are incredibly high in truck accident cases and the insurance company on the other side will begin an investigation almost immediately. It is vitally important that you conduct an investigation of your own as soon as possible. A personal injury attorney in Scottsdale can help preserve evidence and protect your best interests against even the largest corporate entities.

Connect with a Scottsdale Truck Accident Lawyer on Your Claim

When it comes time to collect compensation for the costs and damages linked to your injuries from the truck accident, you will generally be filing your claim with the trucking company’s insurance provider. The insurance company does not work for you, they don’t even work for the trucking company, they work for profit.

To increase profits like any other for-profit company, the insurance company will deny whichever claims they can while paying as little as possible on those claims they cannot deny. Working with an experienced truck and car accident attorney in Scottsdale is the best way to ensure that you recover what you are entitled to, and are not taken advantage of by the insurance company.
