- Motorcycle Versus Truck Collison Information
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, 103,423 motor vehicle collisions occurred in 2011, causing 825 fatalities or an 8.7 percent increase from the previous year. Operating a motorcycle or truck on the Arizona roads and highways has a great potential for danger.
With about 2.26 vehicle-related deaths occurring each day in Arizona, knowing what to do following a motorcycle or truck accident is essential. When it comes to accident severity, motorcycles and trucks simply do not mix. Motorcycles are the most hazardous kind of motor vehicle available today. The enormous size and weight of trucks make these vehicles the largest dangers on the roads.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck or motorcycle accident, our Phoenix personal injury attorney is able and prepared to guide you through the legal process.

The Dangers Of Motorbike Collisions
Motorbike collisions occur for a variety of reasons, some of which are out of the motorists hands. As more and more vehicles fill the roadways in Arizona, traffic congestion increases. The increase in the number of cars, trucks, and bikes on the roads suggests a higher propensity for a collision to occur.
In 2011, 2,553 people in Arizona were injured due to a motorcycle crash. As the popularity of bike’s increase, as does the number of motorbike-related vehicle fatalities. In fact, over half of the bike accidents in 2011 occurred with no violation in driver behavior. This indicates the great hazards associated with operating a bike with traffic congestion, high speeds and other large vehicles on the road.
If you have been injured in a serious collision, a Phoenix personal injury attorney from Phillips Law Group is dedicated to fighting for your justice.
Big Rig Crash Statistics
In the United States, every 16 minutes a tractor-trailer accident causes an injury or fatality. As such large vehicles, these vehicles present an elevated level of danger to both themselves and the other vehicles on the roads. Jackknife crashes, for instance, result in the death of the truck driver 1 out of every 10 collisions and often wipe out anything in their path – including riders that are innocently caught up in the crash.
The majority of large, commercial vehicles can weigh upwards of 20 to 30 times more than a typical passenger vehicle. This variance in weight leads to severe injuries when an impact occurs. Truck wrecks have been known to take place all over the state of Arizona, especially on the highways and tollways where long distances are involved.
Motorcycles Versus Trucks
The enormous size difference between a motorbike compared to most commercial vehicles put riders in an incredibly vulnerable position. Not only are these types of vehicles enormous, they have significant blind spots associated with them – big rig blind spots paired with small motorbikes can create a disastrous situation for everyone involved.
While both truck drivers and motorbike riders must be aware of one another on the road, often times these two particular vehicles have trouble co-existing. While the percentages of 18 wheeler and motorcycle collisions are somewhat smaller than that of automobiles, the severity of an injury and the possibility of death increases greatly.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
