Arizona Truck Accident Lawyers
Large commercial truck accidents are far more common than you’d think. In fact, a commercial truck accident happens every 16 minutes in the United States! Commercial trucks – also knows as tractor-trailers, big-rigs, 18-wheelers, or semi-trucks– are frequently responsible for accidents in the United States and many of these accidents are fatal.
What Causes Semi Truck Accidents?
Many semi truck drivers suffer from driver fatigue due largely to their tight delivery schedules. Strict delivery deadlines mean that some drivers fail to pull over when tired, aggressively tailgate slower-moving vehicles, and fail to properly check their tires, brakes, and lights in an effort to stay on schedule. Reckless driving also contributes to these accidents. Many tractor-trailers collide with vehicles in blind spots in the rear, side, and front of the truck because they fail to properly check what are called “no-zones”.
Why Should I Hire a Truck Accident Attorney?
When an accident involving a big-rig, 18-wheeler, or tractor trailer occurs, representatives from the tractor-trailer company are typically sent to the scene in an effort to lessen the tractor-trailer
driver’s responsibility for the accident. This is a potentially confusing situation and passenger vehicle drivers are easily taken advantage of by the large trucking companies.
