Who Is Liable When Livestock Causes Car Accidents?

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on January 30, 2023

When an animal darts in front of your car, you are forced to make a split-second decision that could have horrible consequences. If you swerve to avoid the animal, serious injury may result for you, your passengers, and people traveling in other vehicles.

It’s not a pleasant decision to make, but experienced law enforcement officers recommend against swerving to avoid an animal in the roadway. But there are cases where colliding with a large animal such as a steer causes serious injuries for drivers and their passengers, so liability in these cases may not be easy to determine.

When Tractors or Farming Equipment Causes Accidents

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on January 20, 2023

Agriculture is an important industry in Arizona, contributing over $23 billion dollars to the state’s economy every year. And ranching and farming supports over 162,000 Arizona jobs.

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on December 15, 2022

The holiday season is special. It’s a great time to visit relatives, and old friends may be in town. But increased traffic caused by holiday travelers, rainy weather, people driving under the influence, and other factors can make it a hazardous time to drive.

Driving has the highest fatality rate of all the major forms of transportation. In a recent year, over 42,000 people died on our roads and highways. Most of us still have to work during the holiday season, and commutes become more difficult as more people are out driving.

How Dangerous Are EV Fires?

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on December 5, 2022

Electric vehicle (EV) fires are a serious issue that requires our attention. The major problem with EV fires is they burn very hot and they’re difficult to put out. It takes a tremendous amount of water to extinguish an EV fire and they can still reignite hours or even days later.

This new technology is still developing, and we need to have a sensible discussion about the risk of EV fires and the best way to respond to them.

Can Trespassers Sue for Premises Liability in Arizona?

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on November 20, 2022

Premises liability is a legal concept that applies in a personal injury case where the injury was caused by an unsafe condition on someone’s property. The premises liability principle is applicable for injuries that occur on all types of property where residents, guests, or clients may be present, including businesses, homes, and apartment buildings.

In most cases, premises liability does not apply to trespasses. After all, a trespasser has no legitimate reason to be on private property, so it really doesn’t make sense to hold the property owner liable when a trespasser gets hurt.

Why Trucking Companies Must Hire Safe Drivers

By The Husband and Wife Law Team on November 10, 2022

There’s a lot of turnover in the trucking industry. Drivers are constantly leaving the profession because they get fed up with low pay and long hours. That’s why there’s considerable demand for new drivers. This is unfortunate because experienced drivers are less likely to make dangerous mistakes.
