The Arizona roadways are congested with large trucks carrying heavy loads. Being involved in a semi truck crash can be catastrophic, especially if the truck is overloaded.
As with any American corporation, trucking companies are in the business of turning profits. Truckers are often encouraged to haul as much cargo as their trucks can hold. Unfortunately, in many cases, this results in trucks becoming overloaded with freight.
Research suggests that overloading is a major factor in truck accidents. Though, there are strict laws pertaining to load limits, truckers and trucking companies frequently break these rules. An overloaded semi is more likely to be involved in an Arizona truck accident, since the weight of the truck can make it more difficult for the truck driver to stop.
Not all accidents with trucks can be avoided. You or a loved one can sustain a serious injury, as a result of a collision with a semi. A truck accident can also prove fatal. That is why you should speak with an experienced Phoenix truck accident attorney if you have been injured. You may be able to hold the trucker and/or trucking company liable.
