Arizona commercial vehicle accidents: 1 dead in crash with semi

Police in Arizona are in the process of investigating a crash between an SUV and a semitrailer. This, like many other commercial vehicle accidents, proved fatal. If truck driver negligence is believed even partially a factor in this case, the victim's surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses.

According to reports, the driver of the SUV -- age and gender not yet known -- was heading northbound on 27th Avenue in Phoenix when his or her vehicle collided with a semitrailer that was across the roadway. The car became lodged underneath the truck. The driver is believed to have died on or shortly after impact.

The truck driver remained on the scene and is said to be cooperating with authorities. It is unclear if any charges are pending against this individual. There are a lot of unknowns about this incident at the moment. Police are asking any witnesses to the collision to come forward, please.

Sadly, commercial vehicle accidents do often have tragic outcomes. The unexpected loss of life, particularly this time of year, is likely going to prove difficult to handle for this victim's family, but thankfully, they may not have to shoulder the burden of their loss alone. Under the right circumstances, they may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means. An experienced attorney will have the ability to investigate this matter thoroughly and assist the victim's family in pursuing any legal claims believed appropriate against all parties thought liable. Maximum relief may be achieved through negotiation or, if necessary, litigation in an Arizona civil court.
