Arizona Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Byron Browne is not your typical truck accident attorney
Commercial vehicles are involved in many truck accidents in Gilbert and throughout Maricopa County each year. The drivers of these vehicles are often working on deadlines and don’t always drive responsibly. The result is a crash that can leave victims seriously hurt. But even if the commercial driver was negligent, recovering compensation can be complicated.
That’s why you need an experienced commercial vehicle accident lawyer who knows how to build strong cases that get results. Attorney Byron Browne of Browne Law Group understands the impact that injuries can have on victims and their families. He is dedicated to making a difference by helping them recover the compensation they deserve.
Attorney Byron Browne holds negligent drivers accountable
A commercial vehicle is any truck, car, or other vehicle used for business purposes. Common examples include delivery vans and trucks, such as those used by UPS, FedEx, DHL, and Amazon. Cars, minivans, pickup trucks, box trucks, passenger vans, dump trucks, tow trucks, and garbage trucks can also be commercial vehicles.
A commercial vehicle accident can happen on E Pecos Road in Gilbert, W Frye Road in Chandler, or a highway such as the Loop 202 (Santan Freeway). Accidents can be caused by:
- A driver who was speeding
- A driver who looked away from the road while texting behind the wheel
- A driver falling asleep at the wheel
- A company that gave a driver an unrealistic delivery schedule
- A company that did not keep up with the maintenance on a vehicle
- A company that failed to make needed repairs on the vehicle
Delivery drivers usually operate on tight deadlines. Some may take unnecessary risks on the road because they don’t want to fall behind. In some cases, cargo may have been loaded improperly, increasing the risk of an accident.
There are no excuses when negligence leads to an accident that leaves people hurt. If you’ve been injured, you deserve financial compensation.
Our law firm can navigate complex, high-stakes cases
Commercial vehicles are often much larger than private vehicles. So, in a collision, victims can suffer serious injuries. These include broken bones, concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries, and other injuries to the head, neck or back.
Medical expenses can add up fast. You may have needed diagnostic tests, X-rays or MRIs, surgery, medication, physical therapy, and follow-up appointments with doctors. You may not be able to work and there is less income coming in. This can lead to financial stress as you wonder how you’ll be able to pay your bills.
If a negligent driver or company caused the accident that left you injured, you shouldn’t have to pay. But recovering compensation is a complicated process. Drivers may deny doing anything wrong. They don’t want their driving record to look bad. Companies may also deny any wrongdoing. They may be concerned about their safety record.
What can you do when the negligent party that caused your accident denies responsibility? You can call Browne Law Group. Our firm does not put up with any bull or nonsense. We build strong cases. We hold negligent parties accountable. We get results.
When insurance companies fight your claim, we fight back
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured in a crash. But the truth is, they are most concerned with keeping their costs down. Their goal is to process your claim as quickly as possible while paying you as little as possible. There are many different tactics they use to try to minimize compensation.
One tactic is questioning the seriousness of your injuries. Another is seeking access to your medical history to try to argue that your injuries were pre-existing. They may try to blame you for what happened. Under Arizona’s comparative negligence system, that could mean less compensation they would have to pay.
They may just offer you a settlement. Shortly after your accident, you may be contacted by an adjuster with a settlement offer. That doesn’t sound like a bad thing. The problem is that their offer will fall far short of covering the actual damages you suffered in the commercial vehicle accident. The insurance company is hoping you’ll accept so they can save money.
We think you deserve better. You need a lawyer who won’t put up with their bull.
