How a Phoenix Truck Accident Lawyer Protects Victims’ Rights
A truck accident claim is a much more complex legal matter than a personal injury claim involving passenger cars. For most car accidents, you simply file a claim with your own or the other driver’s insurance company. On the other hand, truck accident cases usually require victims to file for financial compensation with a powerful commercial trucking operation, their insurer, and the lawyers hired to protect the company.
This can make it nearly impossible for a person without expert legal representation to obtain full and fair compensation for their damages. Most truck accident lawsuits take a year or more to finally reach an outcome.
Truck accident cases typically involve complicating factors such as:
- Catastrophic injuries or wrongful death
- Several insurance policies pertaining to different aspects of the trucking business
- Numerous involved parties at multiple stages of operation that could be liable for the truck crash
- Commercial drivers who may be third-party hires working for another company
- Strict statutes of limitations limiting your time to file a lawsuit
- Trucking companies that have the wealth and resources to do what it takes to evade liability for the actions of their employees
Your Phoenix truck accident attorneys from Buckingham & Vega Law Firm won’t let any of these challenges stand in the way of your recovery.
After your truck crash, our truck accident lawyers can help you in the following ways.

A Phoenix, AZ Truck Accident Lawyer Can Protect Your Rights
The trucking company is not going to offer you a fair settlement up front. You’ll need an experienced truck accident attorney to fight for the financial recovery you deserve and are afforded by Arizona law.
This compensation you obtain is essential to your ability to live a full and healthy life. Because it covers necessities like medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earnings, property damage, and other financial costs, an unfairly low settlement would put your future at a severe disadvantage.
Living with your injuries, especially if they have permanent effects, can mean you experience difficulties with even the most basic tasks. Damages like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life can set you up with the means to achieve the highest quality of life possible.
Our truck accident lawyers in Phoenix, AZ have decades of experience dealing with insurance companies and protecting clients’ rights. We’ll fight for you to get full and fair compensation for your injuries. If this means your case needs to go to court, our accomplished Arizona trial lawyers will be at your side every step of the way.
