In Arizona, the person or party who caused a traffic accident must pay for victims’ medical costs and vehicle repairs. Therefore, it is necessary to determine who or what caused your truck accident before you can recover compensation.
Liability for a truck accident in Surprise often goes to the trucking company. An investigation may discover that the company fell short of its duties of care toward the public, such as by hiring incompetent truck drivers or failing to maintain its fleet. In other cases, a trucking company may be vicariously liable for the mistakes of its truck drivers or employees. An attorney can carefully investigate your accident to determine liability.
Trucking accidents often cause catastrophic injuries, meaning injuries that will affect a victim severely and/or permanently. These injuries may include broken bones, head and brain injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, amputations, scarring and disfigurement, burn injuries, internal injuries, and fatal injuries.
