A flat bed truck traveling eastbound on I-10 in Phoenix this morning flipped over and spilled the load of mulch it was carrying, causing severe delays in both directions for commuters for 5 hours. Luckily there were no injuries reported for this incident. Large commercial vehicles such as this are a common sight on our freeways in Arizona. It is important to be aware of their presence because they do have different driving capabilities as the average car driven by you and me. Their stopping time is much slower, turns can be wider and unpredictable, and the truck drivers’ blind spots are larger.
While there were no injuries caused by this morning’s accident, large commercial vehicles have the potential to cause a lot of damage and put other drivers’ safety at risk. If you are involved in an accident with a semi truck, flat bed truck or any other large commercial type vehicle, you could have a claim to collect money to cover your property damage, medical bills, loss of wages and pain and suffering caused by the incident. Lawyer Matthew Lopez will seek out any and all money owed to you. He will work with the insurance companies and medical providers to get you the maximum amount you deserve.
