Every year, commercial trucks get into traffic accidents that cause victims serious, debilitating, and deadly personal injuries. The average big rig can exceed 80,000 pounds, while most passenger cars weigh between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds. In a collision between these two types of vehicles, the latter will almost always sustain the worse damages. If you have injuries or a loved one died in a Prescott Valley truck accident, please contact us online or call (928) 778-2660 for a free consultation with an attorney you can trust. You might be eligible for compensation.
One of the most complicated aspects of many trucking accident cases is vicarious liability. Trucking companies have vicarious liability over their employees and drivers, meaning they will be liable for most truck accidents their staff members cause. Going up against a trucking company can be difficult as the average claimant due to the imbalance between your legal resources. Hiring your own personal injury lawyer can level the playing field, enabling you to engage in stronger negotiations with the trucking company and its insurer in pursuit of fair financial compensation for your losses.
Navigating a truck accident case takes an understanding of why your crash happened. In Arizona, under the state’s tort-based insurance system, you cannot seek compensation until you identify who or what caused your truck accident.
