Truck accident faq

If you or a loved one has been in a truck accident, you probably have a lot of good questions, like “Why do I need a personal injury lawyer in Arizona?” or “Why do these kinds of accidents happen?” Below we have answered a few common questions, but if the answer you are looking for isn’t there don’t worry, our Arizona personal injury attorneys are just a phone call away.

What are Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

Truck accidents happen in Arizona for a wide range of reasons, but some of the more common causes are:

  • Blind spots
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Fatigue
  • Failing to use reasonable care and obey traffic signs and signals
  • Inexperienced or poorly trained drivers
  • Unbalanced or too-wide loads
  • Tire blowouts
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to adjust driving to the road and weather conditions
  • Speeding
  • Equipment failures
  • Malfunctioning breaks

These are just a few of the many causes of truck accidents. If you think the accident that you were in was caused by something else, don’t let that stop you from calling Zinda Law Group. Our experienced Arizona personal injury lawyers are ready to hear you story and help you assess your case.

Who Would I Sue?

This is a really important question, and one that in part depends on which of the above causes is the reason for your accident. If the truck driver was acting negligently, such as by being distracted while driving or speeding, then you would likely sue the driver. However, if the driver was in the course of his or her employment when the accident happened, you may be able to sue the driver’s employer as well under a doctrine called respondeat superior.

Suing the employer trucking company is beneficial because it is much more likely that they will be able to pay you the compensation you deserve, and because it motivates the company to ensure that their drivers are behaving safely and responsibly. Sometimes there will be other parties who are responsible instead of or in addition to the driver and his or her employer. For example, say the mechanic improperly fixed the trucks brakes, or the manufacturer made a mistake when manufacturing the brakes.

It can be difficult to figure out who is the right person to sue, which is why reaching out to an experienced Arizona personal injury lawyer is so important. An experienced attorney can hear your story and make sure that you hold everyone who was responsible liable for your injuries.

Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Lawyer Near Me?

If you have been in a truck accident in Arizona, you may want to save the hassle of going through an attorney and just handle the aftermath yourself with the defendant’s insurance company. However, doing so could extremely reduce the amount of compensation you could receive, or entirely prevent you from receiving compensation at all.

The insurance company for the defendant has one major goal: to make a profit. This means they will do everything in their power to keep you from getting the compensation you deserve. They may try to elicit certain responses from you so they can argue that you were at fault, or they may try to convince you to accept an amount well below what you deserve.

An experienced Arizona personal injury attorney can help you negotiate with the insurance company to make sure their offer is one you deserve. And, if their offers are not sufficient, your attorney can help you prove your case in court for a jury who may award you damages.

Additionally, our personal injury attorneys are experienced at investigating cases and figuring out who was responsible. Sometimes it isn’t obvious, and without an attorney by your side, you may be missing the person who was the most liable and the most capable of paying the compensation you are entitled to. Thus, retaining an Arizona personal injury lawyer is vital to the success of your case.


How Can I Be Compensated After a Truck Accident?

It is impossible for your attorney to predict exactly the amount you may be entitled to, but generally plaintiffs in these kinds of actions can recover three kinds of damages: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages, which are sometimes called “exemplary” damages. To recover costs that stemmed directly from the accident, such as your medical expenses or the time you had to take off work, a jury would award you economic damages. Non-economic damages are a bit more speculative, but they include compensation for things like your pain and suffering; both of these damages together are referred to as “compensatory damages.”

Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for their negligent conduct and can be awarded in large amounts. Arizona, unlike other states, doesn’t cap the amount of punitive damages you could receive from your truck-related accident, although as a general rule they cannot be more than nine times the amount of compensatory damages.

How Long Do I Have to File Suit?

In Arizona, plaintiffs for these types of personal injury lawsuits have two years to bring a lawsuit, starting from the date of the accident. Although two years may feel like a good amount of time, it tends to fly by when you are dealing with the aftermath consequences of an accident. Plus, the earlier you reach out to an Arizona truck accident lawyer, the more time they have to prepare for your case.


Proving negligence in a truck accident case

Generally, the type of action you would be bringing is a negligent cause of action, although sometimes it might be a products liability claim or something of that sort, depending on who was at fault. Negligence lawsuits require the plaintiff to prove four elements: duty, breach, causation, and damages.


The plaintiff must prove that the defendant owed a legal duty to use reasonable care; basically, you need to prove that the defendant was obligated to ensure your safety by acting in a rational manner. Truck drivers have a duty to others on the road to operate their trucks in a safe and reasonable way. Moreover, truck driving companies have a duty to make sure that their drivers are properly vetted and supervised, to ensure the safety of other drivers like yourself.


The plaintiff then must prove that although the defendant had this legal duty, they breached the duty by failing to conduct themselves safely and reasonably. For example, if you could prove that the truck driver was speeding or texting when the accident occurred, that would be considered a breach of their duty.


Third, the plaintiff has to prove that the breach of their duty was the cause of their injuries; this means that if something else was really the cause of your injuries—say, for example, you were not wearing your seatbelt—then that could make this element difficult to prove. However, an experienced Arizona truck accident lawyer knows how to investigate the matter thoroughly to prove this element in court.


Lastly, the plaintiff needs to prove that the injuries actually cost them damages; damages cover a wide net of costs, such as medical costs and costs for your mental anguish. Even if you can prove the first three elements, if you can’t prove that the injury created damages, then you will not be able to prevail.

This may feel like a really complicated lawsuit, and in some ways it can be. However, at Zinda Law Group, our accident lawyers are well versed in this field of law and can help by walking you through every step of the process.

They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.

I was very satisfied with the professionalism of my attorney and the paralegals, they helped me threw this accident and got me a great settlement, all while keeping me involved and informed. Zinda law group made me feel comfortable and I trusted them to fight for me. The trust was well placed! Thank Yous, I appreciate all that Yous done for me and my family!!
I’ve had such a great experience with Zinda law group! They’ve handled everything relatively quickly and professionally. They really have made my life a lot easier. I recommend anyone dealing with auto accidents (or similarly) to Zinda Law group.I felt I was very important to them and that my feelings and thoughts were validated. They treated me with much care and respect, not like “just another client”. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.

Very accommodating they work extremely hard to make sure that you are compensated from start to finish they made it happen and made a rough time a lot smoother than I could of ever imagined thank you all for everything if you are looking for a lawyer that goes above beyond look no further Michael will get you taken care of!
Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
They helped me after I got into car accident, they are such a great professional business. I would honestly recommend them to anyone that would need help after a car accident for sure, they kept me up to date with everything that was happening on with my case. I had multiple people working on my said case and they were very professional and nice whenever they had called me and kept it very simple for me to understand what was actually going on. I'm extremely happy that I had found them and went with them to help me and I'm so thankful for them. 10/10 would recommend!
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient.

They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I ended up getting hit by a car when I was at school at the age of 17. My whole life ended up changing after that accident and because of family matters I wasn't able to get help till I was 18. I found Zinda law firm and I can swear to anyone these guys will help you! I thought I wasn't gonna get justice till the members of Zinda proved me wrong. They got me all the help I needed and Justice was served because of them. I will forever be grateful!

I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

A very special thanks to everyone that worked diligently on our behalf.Sincerely,Blane and Cindy Colbert

If our Arizona truck accident lawyers were to conclude that you may have a product liability case, then that lawsuit would look different. A products liability lawsuit happens when the injury was caused by a defective product that made its way onto the truck. Common examples of this are brake failure or issues with the hitch that connects the trailer to the truck.

Successfully winning a product liability suit generally requires that the plaintiff prove three elements:

1. The part was defective and unreasonably dangerous;

2. The part was being used as the manufacturer intended; and

3. The condition of the party had not changed since it was first purchased.

In Arizona, these lawsuits can be based on strict liability, which can make it easier for plaintiffs to win. Essentially, strict liability makes it so that the manufacturer of the defective product is liable for the injuries regardless of the actions he or she took to prevent the product defect. In a product liability suit, plaintiffs can be awarded the same kinds of damages that they would be in a negligence action: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.


Unfortunately, fatalities are not uncommon occurrences for trucking accidents. If you have lost a loved one due to an accident, we are so incredibly sorry for your loss. We want to help in the best way we know how: If you were to decide to bring a lawsuit, we could help you, and it would likely be a wrongful death lawsuit.

Succeeding in a wrongful death claim requires the plaintiff to prove that if the defendant had acted in a reasonably safe and careful way, your loved one would not have passed away. Additionally, the plaintiff would need to prove that because of the loss of their loved one, they have suffered a financial loss.

In wrongful death actions, plaintiffs can recover different types of damages than those in negligence and product liability suits. A plaintiff may be eligible to receive compensation for things like funeral costs and loss of anticipated earnings in addition to compensation for medical bills and punitive damages, if awarded.


Regardless of the legal claim you have, generally, the process you will experience if you retain a Zinda Law Group truck accident attorney near you can look something like this:

  • First, you will have a 100% free consultation with our attorneys, where you can explain what happened to you and we can determine what kinds of legal claims you might have.
  • Then, we conduct our investigation; this means we gather medical records to prove your injuries, see if there is any camera footage of the accident, analyze police reports, interview your doctor, and much more.
  • After completing our investigation, we will negotiate with the legal team of the defendant’s insurance company to see if we can come to a settlement agreement; if they make an offer that you are comfortable with, we can accept it.
  • If the insurance company is unwilling to agree to a reasonable amount, we then can file your suit in court. After filing, we will litigate any necessary pre-trial motions at court before eventually going to trial in front of a jury. However, the insurance lawyers can change their minds and make a settlement offer at any time up to the jury deliberations, and we can accept if they make one you are comfortable with.
  • Last, and most important, we finally win you the compensation you deserve so you can get your life back on track and put this tragic accident behind you.

To get started, call our Arizona truck accident lawyers today.

That means you only have to pay us if you win; that is our “No Win, No Fee Guarantee.”

To take advantage of this offer and to take the first step of taking your life back into your own hands, call us today at (800) 863-5312.

Meetings with attorneys are available by appointment only.
