Why Experience Matters

An accident involving an 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer, or semi-truck is often life-altering, and sometimes fatal for occupants of a passenger vehicle or pedestrians involved in the accident. Tractor trailer accidents are typically far more complex than car accident cases due to the sheer amount of laws, regulations, and factors that they usually involve.

A tractor trailer can weigh more than 80,000 pounds and be up to 75 feet in length. According to the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT), out of 500,000 tractor trailer accidents each year, about 5,000 are fatal. Many tractor trailer accidents are caused by driver fatigue, distractions, defective products, and any number of other factors.

According to Dan Ramsdell, the National Director of The Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers (APITLAmerica), one of the most pressing problems in the trucking industry today is fatigued driving, with nearly 40 percent of big truck crashes being caused by or contributed to a fatigued driver. A skilled truck accident lawyer in Phoenix will help determine whether the accident was caused by a fatigued truck driver and, if so, you may be entitled to punitive damages in addition to compensatory losses.

Tractor trailer accidents may involve multiple insurance companies, regulatory agencies, and law enforcement agencies. Trucking industry regulations allow victims of tractor trailer accidents to bring claims against both the truck driver and the trucking company that employs or contracts with the driver.

Compensation for Trucking Accident Victims

Victims of a trucking accident are entitled to compensation for their injuries (often severe), hospital, doctor, and other medical bills, lost wages (including lost earning capacity), pain and suffering (past and future), and permanent impairment and disfigurement. The victim’s damages may change their life forever and help pay off medical expenses and lost earnings over the course of a lifetime.

If the trucking accident results in a fatality, Arizona’s wrongful death statute governs who can bring a claim, commonly referred to as statutory beneficiaries. The measure of damages for the statutory beneficiaries is complex and requires experts to establish full value of the claim.
