Arizona Truck Accident: Out of State Drivers

Phoenix Attorneys Help with Your Injury Lawsuit

Every year there are more big trucks on America's roadways. A project out of George Washington University, reports that large commercial trucks transported 34.2 million tons of freight throughout the U.S. every day in a recent year.

Half of all commercial truck miles traveled are on the interstate highway system. Although semi tractor-trailers and other big rigs make up only 4.3% of all vehicles on the highway and account for only 10% of all highway miles traveled, on some heavily-traveled stretches of American roadway, every fourth vehicle on the road is a large commercial truck.

In the state of Arizona, 12,294 large trucks and buses were involved in traffic crashes in 2015, as reported by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Every year, accidents involving out-of- state truck drivers kill and injure thousands of people in the Grand Canyon State.

Truck Accident with an Out of State Driver

If you have been injured in a truck accident with an out of state driver, it is essential to find an attorney to represent you who is knowledgeable in resolving this type of case. A fully loaded 18-wheeler often weighs up to 80,000 lbs., while passenger vehicles average about 3,000 lbs. In a collision between a large truck and a passenger vehicle, the occupants of the passenger vehicle are far more likely to be seriously or fatally injured. The Husband & Wife Law Team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. has the knowledge, skills, and resources to fight for the compensation you need and deserve.

Truck accidents cases with out of state drivers can be more difficult and complex than car accident cases for several reasons:

  • Truck accidents often cause catastrophic or fatal injuries. Large trucking companies and their insurance carriers hire teams of corporate insurance defense lawyers to fight back in an attempt to avoid paying out high value compensatory damages.
  • Most truck drivers carry insurance from their home state, which may have different coverage requirements than Arizona. However, national and international insurance companies typically provide coverage valid in any state in which the driver travels.
  • The trucking industry is governed by complex federal and state regulations. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulate trucking companies and their drivers. When an out of state truck driver violates regulations, both the driver and the trucking company could be held liable for damages.
  • Establishing liability in a truck accident claim can be complicated. Multiple parties could potentially be held accountable, including the truck driver, the trucking company, vehicle or parts manufacturers, or other party.
