An 18 Wheeler is a type of Commercial Truck that referrs to the number of wheels of a semi-truck.
There are safety regulations that are intended to help prevent 18 wheeler accidents from occurring. Failure to adhere to these safety regulations greatly increase the risk of a 18 wheeler accident to occur on Arizona's roadways. Commercial truck drivers must assume responsibility to take all measures to avoid accidents and putting other drivers on the road at risk of becoming injured.
Due to the large size of 18 wheelers, these types of accidents can unnecessarily endanger the lives of those in smaller vehicles, particularly when 18 wheeler operators fail to consider proper accident prevention.
18 Wheeler Accidents have an increased chance of injury because during an accident a 18 wheeler there is a high probability of the truck and payload turning over or on its side. Commercial truck drivers do not have the same visibility and quick reaction maneuverability that smaller vehicles have, which often contributes to an accident involving a commercial or semi-truck.
Under Arizona law, when a motor vehicle operator is injured and/or have property damage as a direct result of another's recklessness, carelessness, or negligence, the accident victim may have a legal right and the ability to seek compensation for economic compensatory damages, non-economic compensatory damages, and/or damages for pain and suffering.
