Accidents between vehicles and big rig tractor trailers, 18 wheelers, or semi-trucks are typically more serious than accidents between two cars. The tremendous size and power of these large trucks pose a serious threat to people traveling in passenger vehicles. At Villanueva Skura Attorneys at Law, we aggressively pursue appropriate compensation for our injured clients. Our skilled trucking accident lawyer in Chandler fights to hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries.

Determining Liability in a Truck Accident
Due to the risks posed by these vehicles, truck drivers are held to a stricter legal standard. In addition to the traffic laws followed by all drivers, truck drivers must follow a variety of state and federal statutes that govern truck maintenance, inspections, and place limits on the amount of time drivers are allowed to be behind the wheel. When these rules and standards are not followed, truck drivers and the companies that employ them may be held liable.
We represent clients who sustained injuries in:
- Rollover accidents
- Jackknife accidents
- Unsafe lane changes
- Underride accidents
- Other trucking accidents
The first step is to determine the cause of the accident. Truck accidents are often caused by driver fatigue, speeding, driving under the influence, insufficient driver training, an overloaded truck, failure to perform required maintenance, and malfunctioning parts or equipment.
