- Commercial Trucking Damages Claims
The commercial trucking industry is one of the mainstays of the Arizona economy for many reasons. Anyone who spends any time on the roads understands that there are times when we must share them with these enormous vehicles. Fortunately, the majority of truck drivers are highly trained and highly skilled, but that doesn’t prevent Arizona commercial trucking wrecks from happening on a regular basis. Anyone who has lost a loved one in a fatal Arizona commercial trucking wreck should seek the immediate help of an experienced Phoenix wrongful death lawyer.
Below you’ll find information regarding a description of Arizona personal injury law, a brief introduction to the real-world fallout that arises following a wrongful death in Arizona, how wrongful death claims proceed in Arizona, how wrongful death claims arising from Arizona commercial trucking wrecks tend to play out and finally information regarding how you should proceed if you need help from an Arizona wrongful death attorney.
Personal Injury Lawsuit Attorneys and Commercial Trucking Wrecks
Personal injury law in Arizona exists so that when someone does something irresponsible, reckless or even intentionally, those who have been harmed can seek justice in civil court by way of obtaining compensation in the form of damages. The standard that’s usually used is known as negligence, and negligence is generally defined as an action that does not meet the standard of a reasonable person acting in a similar situation. Common injuries that result from Arizona commercial trucking wrecks that lead to these lawsuits include concussions, traumatic brain injuries, whiplash, burn injuries, broken bones, paralysis and many others.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Basically, Arizona personal injury laws deal with losses that are incurred by someone because of the negligent actions of someone else. No loss is greater to any family than when a loved one is killed because of the negligence, recklessness or the intentional conduct of someone else. These situations lead to emotional devastation given the sudden death that has occurred, and such a scenario can also lead families to encounter financial as well as emotional peril. Therefore, successful Arizona wrongful death lawsuits filed by personal injury attorneys generally lead to an award of damages that compensate family members for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their loss of income and their loss of companionship.
Negligence Involved with Arizona Wrongful Death Lawsuits
When an Arizona commercial trucking wreck occurs and someone is killed because of the negligence of the truck driver, there are standards that need to be applied in order for the driver and perhaps his employer to be held accountable in the eyes of the law. Generally, it should be shown that the person would not have been killed but for the reckless or otherwise negligent driving of the driver, and there are common causes of Arizona commercial trucking wrecks that include:
- Use of intoxicants
- Inattentive driving
- Reckless maneuvers
There are many others, but what must be shown is that some act or omission on the part of the commercial truck driver was not only negligent, but that this negligence is what caused the accident and that the accident caused the death of the person at issue.
Given the emotional difficulties faced by a family that suddenly is without its husband, wife, mother or father, it should be noted that there are time limits known as the statute of limitations that apply to these situations. If someone files an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit after this time limit has passed, the case will be dismissed as a matter of law regardless of the facts involved in most situations.

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Sophia H is very helpful.
