Arizona Truck Crashes
Commercial trucks are involved in some of the most catastrophic traffic accidents that occur. Being involved in an auto crash with a commercial truck can be terrifying and life-altering. Semi-trucks weigh approximately 20 times more than the average 4-door vehicle. Usually, people who sustain injuries in truck accidents are more severely injured than those who are hurt in regular auto accidents.
Unfortunately, auto crashes take place in Arizona hundreds of times per day. The state sees more than 65,000 people sustain injuries every year due to car crashes, and over 1,000 lose their lives. Sustaining injuries in a collision can totally alter a person’s life. If you or a loved one of yours was recently hurt in a crash, you may be dealing with an array of problems, ranging from physical, emotional, and financial.
You may have ended up stuck in the hospital, which means that you were unable to work for some time. This may have resulted in negative mental consequences, like stress, anxiety, and more. A personal injury lawyer can help you learn more about your legal right toward financial compensation. Compensation can help cover some or all of the costs associated with your wreck.
There are over 11 million trucks actively operating throughout the United States, many with fatigued and overworked drivers carrying hazardous loads. In 2016, approximately 475,000 large truck collisions were reported in the United States. Human error was the leading cause of these wrecks, accounting for more than 90% of them.

Sadly, many truck accidents end in fatalities. These are more than likely the result of driver negligence due to the fact that truck drivers are often overworked and fatigued.
