Truck driver negligence often causes fatal injuries
There are many different types of negligence that can lead to a fatal truck accident. For example:
- A speeding driver can lose control of a tractor-trailer on the Loop 202.
- A texting driver may look away from the road and crash into a car.
- The driver of a truck can fail to take required breaks or spend more time behind the wheel than federal regulations allow.
- A driver may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- The trucking company may have hired a driver who was not qualified.
- The trucking company may have given a driver an unrealistic delivery schedule.
- The truck may have been in need of maintenance or repair.
- The tires or brakes on the truck may have been defective.
- The cargo may have been loaded improperly.

Byron Browne will fight for accountability and justice
We can help you file a wrongful death claim if you lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident. In Arizona, surviving spouses, children, parents or guardians, or personal representative can take legal action to recover damages after a fatal truck accident
The value of your claim will depend on many factors. Byron Browne can determine your total damages. But in general, you can seek compensation for funeral and burial expenses, your loved one’s final medical expenses, loss of financial support, the cost of household services (such as yardwork and childcare), and loss of companionship.
Truck accident cases involving fatal injuries can be complicated. One reason is that many different parties can be involved. These include the driver, the trucking company, the owner of the trailer, the owner of the cargo, and the company that loaded the cargo. Each party may have their own lawyer and be represented by a different insurance company.
Another reason is that negligent parties and insurance companies will aggressively fight your claim. Negligent parties may deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies know there is a lot of money at stake and will use many different tactics to minimize your claim.
Attorney Byron Browne knows how insurance companies operate. When they fight your claim, he will fight back.
