Phoenix Truck Accident Lawyer (Top Rated, over 80 years Combined Experience)
Having a 32,000 pound semi-tractor truck collide with a 4000 pound automobile is a recipe for disaster. Regardless of the “why”, truck accidents can be catastrophic and all too often deadly resulting in a very serious injury or wrongful death claims. Truck accidents can be caused from something as simple as driver error, the trucking company’s negligent maintenance of the semi and/or trailer, too many working hours or miles logged without proper rest or improper loading or securing of the cargo they are hauling. Arizona is home to several interstate highways used for truck hauling and with our mountain landscape several of these highways are extremely dangerous. The interstate highways that go through Phoenix Arizona, Metropolitan Maricopa County and Mohave County are some of the deadliest when it comes to trucking accidents.

Phoenix Truck Accidents
In Phoenix, truck accidents are a common occurrence. The city is a major transportation hub, and trucks travel through it on a daily basis. This means that there is a high risk of being involved in a truck accident if you live or work in Phoenix.
There are many different factors that can cause truck accidents. Some of the most common causes include:
- Driver negligence: Truck drivers are responsible for operating their vehicles safely. However, they may make mistakes that lead to accidents, such as speeding, driving under the influence, or distracted driving.
- Mechanical failure: Trucks are complex machines, and there is always the risk of mechanical failure. This can lead to accidents if the truck loses control or breaks down on the road.
- Overloaded trucks: Trucks are only designed to carry a certain amount of weight. If a truck is overloaded, it can be more difficult to control, and the risk of an accident increases.
- Hazardous weather conditions: Truck accidents are more likely to occur in hazardous weather conditions, such as rain, snow, or fog. This is because the road conditions are more difficult to drive in, and drivers may be more likely to make mistakes.
