Our Attorneys Pursue Damages for Your Truck Accident Losses

When we take on your case, we start by taking stock of what you experienced, paying attention to how this crash affected your life. The main categories we look for are:

  • Medical expenses including emergency care, follow-ups, and rehabilitation
  • Income losses from lost salary, wages, or freelance work
  • Pain and suffering, reduced enjoyment of life, and diminished earning ability

We consider each of these areas equally important since they affect crucial parts your life: your physical health, your financial health, and your psychological health.

Our personal injury lawyers then pursue appropriate damages to account for all these losses. Whether you file an insurance claim or seek a personal injury lawsuit, we work to ensure you receive the maximum damages possible.

Get Help with Catastrophic Injury Expenses

Truck injuries are known for causing severe injuries, including:

  • Loss of limb
  • Disfiguring injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Permanent disability

After these life-changing injuries, your compensation should cover the long-term impact. For instance, the Mayo Clinic reports that traumatic brain injuries can cause difficulty concentrating, multitasking, or problem solving. Depending on your job, this can make going back to work difficult. We can seek damages to cover a gap in pay if you have to reduce your hours, or compensation to cover training for a new job.

Continuing therapy and support are also covered by financial awards. For instance, if you suffered a spinal cord injury, you may need wheelchair repairs and replacement. Many of these injuries can cause mental health struggles, so we can include regular counseling in our consideration of your damages.

However, since some expenses are not apparent right away, don’t accept the first settlement offer from an insurer, trucking company, or attorney. Often these are too low and don’t account for the many long-term losses associated with catastrophic injuries. We can review any offers and keep liable parties from hounding you, so you have time to contemplate the full impact of your injuries.

We Work to Tie Your Losses to the Accident

Our truck accident lawyers gather evidence to connect the accident to your injuries and losses by collecting:

  • Bills from hospital and office visits
  • Doctor’s diagnostic notes
  • Imaging and blood work
  • Treatment and rehabilitation plans
  • Doctor and therapist assessments
  • Prescriptions and over-the-counter medications
  • Receipts of out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pay stubs showing your previous income
  • Testimony from doctors, family, and friends

Any—and we do mean any—losses related to your accident are potentially eligible for compensation. If it was an expense or loss you wouldn’t have experienced otherwise, we can gather evidence of it and apply it to settlement negotiations.

We Draft and Submit Paperwork

Claims failings, official statements, lawsuit filings, court documents—we do it all. Our lawyers can navigate the pile of paperwork required to pursue a truck accident case, ensuring forms are filled out correctly and filed on time.

We Deal with Insurers and Trucking Companies

Insurance and companies are well-versed in liability law and will do their utmost to avoid taking responsibility for your injuries. They may try to take advantage of loopholes or trick you into admitting fault.

With our experience in Arizona truck accident cases, we are aware of what laws apply to your case. Moreover, we know the tricks of the trade and can help you sidestep any traps designed to undermine your claim or suit.

Trucking companies may also try to avoid liability by claiming the driver was a contractor instead of an employee. This can mean the driver is not covered by the trucking company’s insurance. We can either work to include the trucking company for their role, or help you pursue a claim or suit against the driver.

What Are the Grounds for a Truck Accident Case in Glendale?

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the significant size differences between a truck and a passenger vehicle are why collisions are so dangerous. The size of commercial trucks makes accelerating, braking, and maneuvering more difficult, and drivers need more space to come to a stop.

This also means that truck drivers have a responsibility to exercise more care, since their vehicles can cause more damage. Failing to adjust for their vehicle’s size can leave them liable for accidents they cause.

Our truck collision attorneys can investigate and build cases around these unique forms of negligence. We can determine if any of the following actions were involved:

  • Driving too fast for road conditions
  • Following another vehicle too closely
  • Making improper lane changes or turns
  • Taking turns too fast
  • Failing to check or account for blind spots

Truck drivers also must avoid the negligence that can cause any motor vehicle accident, like:

  • Driving while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or lack of sleep
  • Driving aggressively
  • Failure to yield or heed traffic signs and signals
  • Driving over the posted speed limit
  • Driving while texting or distracted

Our truck injury lawyers can analyze photos from the scene, traffic camera footage, police reports, and even the history of the driver to determine what form of negligence caused the wreck.

We Investigate Trucking Company Negligence Too

In addition to often being liable for the behavior of their employees, trucking companies are sometimes guilty of their own negligence. We can determine if any of the following played a role:

  • Negligent hiring and training practices
  • Lack of enforcement of trucking regulations
  • Improper cargo handling or loading
  • Lack of truck repairs or maintenance
