When a large truck is involved in an accident with an automobile, it usually results in serious injuries, significant property damage and even death. In Arizona, large truck drivers must comply with stringent safety regulations but often, accident investigations reveal negligence in this regard. The driver’s generally work for large companies who have a team of lawyers on their side. It is important to have an experienced attorney representing you that understands federal and state commercial laws.
Truck accidents are vastly more complicated than typical automobile accidents. You should also keep in mind that the following parties are all stakeholders in the outcome of your accident settlement:
