TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYER
Truck accidents are all too common throughout Arizona, especially in metropolitan areas like Phoenix and Scottsdale. Trucks are undoubtedly a backbone of the US economy, with an Arizona Trucking Institute finding that truck drivers drive an estimated 175 billion miles every year. Unfortunately, all those miles come with tremendous risk of injury to not just truck drivers, but other motorists, pedestrians, and property.
Many commercial trucks like semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, big rigs, and eighteen-wheelers can weigh over 20 times as much as a normal passenger vehicle, smaller vehicles have little chance of not being destroyed when colliding with a commercial truck. And with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) finding about 450,000 police reported truck crashes nationwide annually, many people become victims of these accidents and are forced to deal with the ensuing harsh realities. All throughout Arizona, victims of truck accidents face severe consequences, including a high likelihood of being killed in the accident, sustaining brain damage or traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries, amputation, and permanent paralyzation. Enara Law’s Phoenix personal injury lawyers help these victims seek justice.
Trucking is a business- and trucking companies are in business to make money. Making truck accidents wrose, some trucking companies and truckers will ignore laws and safety regulations in an effort to prioritize their own profits. Our Phoenix truck accident lawyers at Enara Law PLLC can help get you the compensation you deserve and hold the trucking company accountable, to help you pick up the pieces after a devastating truck accident.
PUBLIC SAFETY LAWS
In Arizona, and nationwide, truckers have a duty to operate their truck in a safe manner and not cause injuries to others while on the road. Because of the inherent dangers posed by trucks, trucking is heavily regulated by state and federal laws and regulations.
Arizona has enacted state specific laws in order to further protect other motorists and the public. For public safety, Arizona law requires semi-truck drivers to operate their truck at a speed not to exceed 65 mph. Furthermore, Arizona law ARS 28-1095 limits truckers from driving a semi-trailer that is longer than 28 feet and six inches in length, in an effort to protect motorists from truckers' loss of vehicle control. Finally, Arizona law requires truckers to have rear fender splash guards, to protect other drivers and their vehicles from flying gravel, mud, debris, and rocks.
