Liability in Complex Truck Accidents

Experienced Phoenix Truck Accident Lawyer

Semi-truck and 18-wheeler crashes cause serious injuries and often leave grieving families struggling for answers. Truck accidents are some of the most complex of all personal injury and wrongful death cases. With more than 90 years of combined experience behind us, the Law Firm of Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo offers unparalleled advocacy for victims of complicated trucking-related accidents.

Firm partner, Elliot Wolfe, founded the American Trial Lawyers' Association's Interstate Trucking Litigation Group in 1990. He served as the group's chairman through 2002. We have built a strong network of expert resources to assist with investigations, identifying the extent of injuries and the impact they have on our clients' lives.

Commercial truck accidents are usually more complicated than most other auto collisions. To accurately determine liability and pursue compensation, a lawyer from our firm can sort through a number of different accident reconstruction issues. Furthermore, as the trucking industry is subject to numerous federal and state regulations, our Phoenix personal injury attorneys must determine if any of those regulations were violated, and, if so, whether the violation contributed to the accident. Our Phoenix truck accident lawyers know how to successfully handle truck accident cases which often involve:

  • Interpreting complex federal laws governing the trucking industry, including the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements and restrictions
  • Understanding the intricate relationships between all liable parties in truck accidents, such as shipping companies, cargo owners, truck owners, and the drivers who work for them, whether they are full-time or independent contractors
  • Dealing with convoluted insurance claims and insurance companies that try to minimize victim injuries, and reduce or deny claims, thus leaving victims struggling to pay their own medical expenses and lost wages
