Phoenix Truck Accident Lawyer with Expertise in Trucking Accidents

Preeminent trucking accident attorney in Phoenix

Because of their size and weight, commercial trucks — including tractor-trailers, semis, big rigs and other large trucks — pose significant dangers to the cars and trucks with which they share the road. When trucks are involved in crashes, they are likely to cause catastrophic injuries, temporary or permanent disabilities, and even death to the drivers and passengers in the other vehicles or to pedestrians involved.

At Begam & Marks, P.A., our Phoenix accident attorneys have developed special expertise in collisions involving commercial trucks, both interstate and intrastate operations, and in trucking-related litigation. We strive to recover full compensation for your pain, suffering and other damages, from emergency medical bills to long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation, and from lost wages to lost earning capacity. Key to recovering full compensation is having a thorough and exhaustive understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, as well as State regulations, that govern the safe operation and maintenance of commercial trucks. That knowledge is critical to proving that the crash was not a mere accident but instead that the driver, or more often the trucking company employer, ignored safety rules that, if followed, would have prevented the crash.

Our Arizona truck accident attorneys have that critical knowledge and experience. They are nationally recognized for their expertise in handling commercial trucking accident cases. Our lawyers have given educational presentations nationally and internationally in the area of trucking litigation and been faculty for trial colleges focused on proper handling of truck accident cases.

Common causes of truck accidents in Arizona

Our Phoenix truck accident lawyers offer assistance for victims of truck accidents resulting from defective truck design or manufacture, defective truck products or parts, negligent road design or negligence of other drivers. We are experienced in representing accident victims injured because of a broad range of driver negligence:

  • Improper maintenance
  • Failure to perform pre-trip inspections
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Failure to stop or yield
  • Improperly loaded or oversized vehicles
  • Failure to properly maintain trucks

More often than not, the carrier or trucking company that employs the driver is also at fault. Truck company or motor carrier negligence often includes things like negligent maintenance of the truck or trailer and negligent hiring, training, supervision and monitoring. At times, the carrier's or driver's violations of the safety regulations are so egregious that punitive or exemplary damages are warranted. If you have been involved in a crash with a big commercial truck, you need attorneys like those at Begam & Marks, P.A., who have the knowledge and determination to find and use the available records to prove your case and get you the best recovery available.

Shippers and brokers may also be at fault for improperly loading sealed trailers or for selecting a dangerous and unsafe trucking company to carry a load. They can also be responsible for placing unrealistic delivery demands on the truck driver.
