The Complexities of a Truck Accident

Commercial trucking is vital to our national economy and facilitates many of the conveniences that we have come to expect in this day and age. Unfortunately, a number of factors combine to make the presence of 18-wheelers on Arizona roads and highways a source of heightened danger for other motorists, passengers, and pedestrians. Whereas with the typical car accident the issues tend to be fairly straightforward and resolved between the private individuals and their insurance companies, the matter becomes much more complex when a commercial truck accident occurs.

Truck Accident Factors

Part of the reason that attempting to determine the nature of a truck accident is so complicated is that there are a number of different parties involved in the everyday and ongoing control of the truck. Some decisions and actions by the truck driver may be wholly independent of the trucking company, and vice versa. Failure to pursue the correct party can lead to the delay or denial of compensation. Some factors that may be involved in a truck accident include:

  • Mechanical defect or malfunction
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Tire defects
  • Negligent hiring or inadequate training
  • Hours of service violations
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Distracted driving
