Trucking Accident Attorneys in Phoenix

Helping You Hold the Negligent Parties Accountable

Like all motorists, commercial vehicle operators have a responsibility to take reasonable action to keep others safe while on the road. Unlike everyday drivers, however, individuals behind the wheel of commercial vehicles are subject to strict standards and industry regulations aimed at keeping others safe. When these standards and regulations are disregarded, accidents can happen.

If you or a loved one was involved in a commercial vehicle collision, the Phoenix truck accident attorneys at Montoya, Lucero & Pastor, P.A. can help. We have helped victims and their families fight to hold negligent truck drivers, companies, and manufacturers responsible when they cause undue harm.

Who Is Liable in a Truck Accident?

Truck accidents and collisions involving any type of commercial vehicle tend to be more complex than other types of automobile accidents. This is, in part, due to the number of parties that may be at fault. Proving fault is the first step to successfully filing a truck accident claim—in order to have a case, you must show that another person or entity acted negligently and that that negligence led to your injuries or damages. In the case of a commercial vehicle or truck accident, there may be multiple negligent parties.

Truck Driver Negligence

Some common examples of how commercial vehicle and truck accidents can occur as a result of negligence include:

  • A commercial driver who was distracted by his or her cell phone
  • Improper or inadequate training by the driver’s supervisor and/or company
  • A collision that occurred while the driver was under the influence of drugs/alcohol
  • Lack of proper vehicle maintenance and/or inspections
  • Fatigued driving, or unsafe use of stimulants to remain awake
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded semi-trucks
  • Unreasonable quotas or driving schedules imposed by the company
  • Defective vehicle parts, including defective tires or brakes

Can Commercial Trucking Companies Be Liable For Accidents?

These are just some of the factors that may be involved in a negligent truck accident. In certain cases, such as a truck driver who is pressured by his company to meet an unrealistic quota and therefore drives while fatigued, both the truck driver and the company may be partially at fault. A commercial company that fails to perform adequate vehicle maintenance and therefore fails to address faulty brakes might be partially liable for an accident along with the manufacturer of the defective brakes.
