A truck and a passenger vehicle that collide will end most often in serious injuries for the passengers in the car. The size, power, and momentum that come with a large commercial truck is a force to reckon with. If a truck is moving at a high rate of speed the intensity of an accident increases substantially.
When it comes down to it, size does matter. A commercial semi runs approximately 80,000 pounds while a standard passenger vehicle only comes in at a mere 3,000 pounds. When a massive object collides with one that isn’t even 5% of its mass, it is not hard to understand why this spells bad news for the smaller object.
With the fast-paced times we are living in there are many large commercial trucks on the roads. Many factors can negatively impact truck drivers including fatigue, training, weather conditions, blind spots, and even substance abuse. Every year there are approximately 4,000 fatalities and more than 75,000 injuries from accidents that have a large semi involved.
The complexity for the victims when it comes to a truck accident comes in who holds liability. Truck accidents can have multiple parties from the driver, to the company, to the manufacturer of the goods in the truck who may be held liable for damages that result from an accident. It takes a smart, tough, and experienced Arizona truck accident injury attorney to weed through the various parties and find the right path forward for a victim to pursue a successful personal injury claim.
