Arizona Tractor Trailer Accidents Could Be On the Rise
It looks as if Arizona wrongful death and personal injury claims for collisions involving tractor trailers may increase soon.
We hope that this will not be the case, but recently, truckers are taking on unprofitable loads just to fill their trucks will make it likely that more truck drivers will increase the number of hours they drive beyond what federal regulations allow and thus drive while fatigued. A major reason for suits against trucking companies comes from truckers driving while fatigued, as the drivers attempt to push the limits of their bodies to make more for themselves or their companies. Claims of Phoenix truck accident wrongful death or serious personal injury revolve around this issue, and we see too often how Arizona trucking companies allow truckers to drive in excess of the number of hours allowed. When a trucker falls asleep at the wheel, it is often at the expense of innocent people who by chance happen to share the same roadway with professional drivers who are not getting enough sleep.
