Arizona Tow Truck Regulations for Safety Purposes

By Breyer Law Offices on June 14, 2013

In the state of Arizona, trucks, including tow trucks, must abide by certain regulations. When they don’t, the results could be tragic. For example, if trucks break down, malfunction, or otherwise don’t work properly, they could put others at risk. According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, new tow truck regulations went into effect as of April 5, 2008. These regulations are still current today and can be found in Arizona Administrative Code Title 13, Chapter 3.

The regulation gives the department the authority to conduct surprise tow truck inspections at the roadside, the company location, and at any time to determine the working condition of the truck. One goal that this new regulation hopes to reach is to make sure towing companies keep their trucks in good working condition. Tow trucks not only must have their engines and tires properly maintained, but also their towing equipment. Dangerous crashes can occur if a tow truck were to lose the car it is towing. The department wants to prevent this catastrophe with the regulation.

Is it Beneficial to Settle an Injury Claim in Mesa?

By Breyer Law Offices on February 25, 2010

The answer to this question really depends on a person’s particular situation, and of course, the circumstances surrounding their accident. However, consider this example. A man is severely injured in a Mesa auto accident that was caused by a negligent driver. Everyone agrees that fair compensation for this man’s injuries is about $1 million. But if the jury comes back and only awards the man $100,000, then the man will only receive $100,000. That’s it. It’s not fair, but it’s what the jury decided. So, if we, as Mesa personal injury attorneys, had a crystal ball and knew the jury would only award $100,000 and yet, the defendant was offering $200,000 to settle the case quickly, then we’d settle.

On the other hand, if someone was in a minor accident and sustained a slight injury, many people might think the case does not have merit and the jury should award nothing. And yet, if we had our crystal ball and saw that a jury would award $1 million in this case, even if the defendant were offering $900,000 to settle, we wouldn’t settle. Read the rest »
