Who is Liable for a Large Truck Accident?
Commercial trucks have caused some of the most serious and fatal accidents that occur on the road in Arizona, and identifying who is responsible can be a difficult and complex process. The Husband and Wife Law Team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. have the resources to investigate the cause of your accident and gather evidence to support your claim.
Common examples of negligence in the trucking industry that can lead to an accident include:
- Negligence, such as distracted driving, using a manual or hands-free cell phone, disobeying traffic laws, and speeding
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Trucker fatigue caused by violating the Hours-of Services (HOS) rules that limit the number of hours a driver may legally spend behind the wheel
- Employer negligence, such as encouraging drivers to violate HOS rules, failing to properly inspect and maintain trucks on a regular basis, and overlooking fraudulent HOS records
In order to prove negligence or error, our legal team will also work with experts in the field of accident reconstruction and forensic investigation to build a strong case on your behalf. Oftentimes, the liable party may attempt to destroy evidence, but we will act quickly to collect the driver's HOS logs, drug and alcohol tests, and other proof of fault.
Handling Truck Insurance Companies
The trucking industry is governed by various state and federal regulations. However, trucking insurance companies are well known for using unscrupulous tactics to avoid providing rightful financial aid to truck accident victims because the costs are often extraordinary. Even if one big rig is involved in an accident, there are often several insurers seeking to escape liability and subsequent financial losses. At Breyer Law Offices, P.C., we have a successful track record for taking on large truck insurance companies and have seen how these insurers may attempt to minimize their own clients' liability.
In the wake of a tragic accident, you will need a strong attorney who is familiar with the various nuances of both the trucking industry's laws and insurance regulations to handle the lengthy negotiations that are often necessary to obtain fair and just compensation.
