Posted by Impact Legal | Dec 31, 2021

One of the most dangerous types of vehicle accidents is semi-truck accidents. The heavy weight, large size, and often hazardous loads make these collisions incredibly serious. Unfortunately, big truck accidents often result in greater damages. Despite this, big truck companies often have big insurance companies, which means despite the toll an accident may have taken on your life, you may be offered an extremely low settlement or no settlement at all. In this article, we'll discuss the unique elements of a big truck accident and the importance of hiring a semi-truck accident lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona.

What Causes of Truck Accidents?

When it comes to operating and maintaining large commercial vehicles, like semi-trucks, extreme attention and caution are needed. Despite this, large truck accidents caused by a lack of caution and adequate attention are quite common. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reports the three largest causes of truck accidents are caused by trucks crossing travel lanes or onto the shoulder of the road; loss of driver control due to several factors including weather conditions, shifting cargo, etc; and rear-end collisions with drivers in the same travel lane. 

  • Driver Error 
  • Driver Negligence
  • Inadequate Driver Training
  • Inadequate Maintenance
  • Improper Loading
  • Speeding

Liability in a Truck Accident

Liability in a truck accident can prove to be tricky. Multiple parties may be liable, including one or more drivers involved in the accident, the truck driver, the truck company, the truck, trailer, or parts manufacturer, the owner of the truck, the company leasing the truck, the shipping entity that requested the load transport. Multiple defendants complicate a truck accident case, which increases the need to hire a semi-truck accident lawyer in Phoenix to help you navigate the legal waters and ensure you get the proper settlement. 

Compensation Available After a Truck Accident

After a semi-truck accident, people wonder what compensation may be available to them to help them get back on their financial feet. In terms of financial compensation, there are various remedies that may be available to you following an accident, including medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, prescription costs, income losses, etc. In addition to financial recovery, non-economic recovery may also be available, which may include damages for emotional trauma, anxiety and depression, loss of enjoyment of life, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc. 

Your legal remedies will depend on the facts of your case, and a semi-truck accident lawyer can help you determine your case value. Generally, here are some economic and non-economic damages that may be available to you:
