Helping accident victims after a truck accident

The trucking industry plays a major role in intrastate and interstate commerce, which often results in high levels of commercial truck traffic in Arizona and other states across the nation. While it is important to deliver goods across the state or to another state, commercial trucks, such as tractor-trailers and semi-trucks, pose several risks on the roadways. These vehicles are much larger than other vehicles and do not maneuver and stop the same way a passenger vehicle does. Because of that, trucks are likely to cause tragic collisions involving serious injuries and even fatalities.

At the Law Office of Keith A Hammond, P.C., our legal team understands that the aftermath of a truck crash can be traumatic. However, we are dedicated to helping injured victims and their loved ones navigate a civil action following truck accident.

There are several reasons why a truck accident might occur and we are committed to uncovering the cause of the crash. Truck drivers often travel long distances and work long hours. This could lead to drowsy driving and delayed responses. If the truck driver fails to comply with federal trucking regulations, this could prove negligence. Additionally, if a trucking company encourages noncompliance with these regulations or they failed to take steps such as properly training the driver, providing routine maintenance on the vehicle and ensuring proper loading and operation of the vehicle, the trucking company could be held liable.

Due to the large size of a commercial truck, those involved in a collision are likely to suffer injuries and incur damages. It is important that victims harmed in a crash recover compensation that is owed to them. Our attorneys understand that the trucking company's insurers will likely contest any claims made. In these matters, we are prepared to fully investigate the incident, work with experts and obtain all necessary information to prove fault in the accident. We have helped past clients successfully navigate their actions, holding truck drivers and trucking companies liable for the incident.
