Common Injuries From Truck Accidents: Have You Suffered One of These?

Injuries from truck accidents are often severe. If you’ve suffered one of these common truck accident injuries or any injury that wasn’t your fault, we may be able to help you seek compensation:

Back and neck injuries can range from relatively minor to extremely severe. These injuries can include whiplash, slipped discs, spinal cord injuries, and more.

Broken legs, arms, and ribs are very common in truck accident cases. These injuries can result in months of pain and may require serious surgeries and ongoing rehabilitation in order to recover.

While head injuries can manifest in different ways, they are always dangerous. Traumatic brain injuries are not uncommon in truck accident cases and this severe type of injury can cause life-long suffering.

Sadly, truck accidents lead to fatalities 10 times more often than passenger car accidents. While no amount of compensation can ever bring a loved one back, filing a claim can hold the responsible party accountable for their actions and provide you and your family with the compensation you need to cover any medical bills and funeral costs.

Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?

Truck accidents happen every day for many different reasons. From driver error to irresponsible decisions on behalf of the trucking company itself, many of these accidents could have been avoided if the proper safety procedures were followed. Listed below are some of the biggest causes of truck accidents on Arizona roads:

This is a common problem for many drivers. Whether it’s texting, talking on the phone, or changing the radio station, distracted driving has led to countless accidents and is the leading cause of accidents among trucks and passenger car vehicles.

Truck drivers tend to operate on tight schedules, and when they fall behind, some drivers try to speed to make their delivery on time. Unfortunately, a large truck barreling down the highway puts other drivers at risk and frequently leads to serious accidents.

Truck drivers can have hectic and demanding schedules. Even if they maintain proper speeds, they can suffer fatigue from the long spans of time spent behind the wheel. While there are laws in place that dictate how long truck drivers can operate these large vehicles, not all drivers and the companies that employ them obey these regulations, putting the truck driver and other drivers on the road at risk when the truck driver inevitably becomes drowsy.

The owners of large commercial vehicles must adhere to strict federal safety regulations, including the maintenance of the trucks. When the party responsible for the truck’s maintenance fails to ensure it’s functioning safely, it can cause innocent drivers on the roads to get hurt.

Filing a Truck Accident Claim in Arizona

For your truck accident claim to succeed, you must be able to prove “negligence” or fault on behalf of another person or entity involved in the accident that led to your injuries.

One of the reasons truck accident claims are especially complicated is that there are several different parties that could potentially be at fault. This is why having an experienced Phoenix, AZ, truck accident lawyer on your side will be to your benefit.

To prove fault, you and your attorney will need to demonstrate the following factors:

  1. You must prove that the truck driver, trucking company, or another related party breached their duty of care.
  2. You must prove that these reckless actions were the direct cause of your accident.
  3. You must prove that the accident directly caused your injuries.

An attorney who is familiar with the laws governing the trucking industry will know how to investigate your case and determine whether any regulations were broken, resulting in your accident. To get started with your truck accident claim, contact Goldwater Law Firm today!

Truck Accident FAQs

Your case should ideally cover the cost of all the damages you suffered as a result of the accident, including your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and more. However, you may also be entitled to compensation for damages that are more difficult to quantify, like pain and suffering and loss of relationships. An experienced Phoenix, AZ, truck accident lawyer can help you determine the true value of your case and fight the insurance companies for what you deserve.

Truck accident cases tend to be much more complicated and serious than regular car accidents and it can be difficult to know how long your case may take without first reviewing all the facts. When you contact Goldwater Law Firm, you can feel confident that our partner attorneys will work as quickly as possible and do everything in their power to fight for the results you need.

Individuals who seek legal help after a truck accident often do so because they believe the insurance company owes them more than what they are offering. If this sounds like your situation, let us be the first ones to tell you, you’re probably right.

The truth is, withholding benefits is the only way insurance companies make a profit, and they are going to stick by their low settlement offer unless they’re forced to do otherwise. An attorney can help you demand what’s fair from the insurance companies and make the difficult legal process much easier for you and your family.

After a truck accident, the amount of medical bills and property repair costs thrown at you can feel unbearable and if your injuries prevent you from working, you may not have a way to pay for these expenses. On top of all this, you now have to worry about whether or not you can afford an attorney. With Goldwater Law Firm, you can! Our office and our partner attorneys operate on a contingency-fee basis, meaning you won’t owe us anything upfront and we won’t charge you a dime unless we win your case!
