- Truck Accidents Caused by Inexperienced Drivers
Across the nation trucking companies are offering driving schools to their most recent employees. This is because they want to help them receive their commercial truck drivers license, which is required to drive any type of large truck. Plus, with a carrying capacity of up to 80,000 pounds, these classes should not be taken lightly. These classes are intended to keep pedestrians and those traveling passenger vehicles safe.
Unfortunately, semi-truck accidents still account for 130,000 accident injuries each year, with 98 percent of the total accidents resulting in death. Truck drivers are required to possess certain skills for both highway and roadway driving, however most new drivers lack the experience needed to operate these huge vehicles safely.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a car versus truck accident due to the negligence of an inexperienced driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. At Phillips Law Group we have years of knowledge and experienced to put to work for you today.

Inexperienced Truck Driver Facts
Arizona is the destination for many goods, and the hub for many truckers traveling through the state in route to California. Thus, there is heavy truck traffic throughout the state and a great number of trucking accidents as well. So, when an inexperienced driver gets behind the wheel of one of these large automobiles, it increases the chance of one of these vehicles getting an accident with another vehicle.
When truck drivers are working on obtaining a commercial drivers license to operate these vehicles, the Department of Transportation enforces a variety of strict rules and regulations in regards to testing and training. Of course, it is becoming more common for truck companies to offer their new employees training and driving school required to obtain their commercial drivers license. The problem with offering their own driving courses is that they tend to be inadequate and push the drivers onto the road too quickly.
Commercial truck drivers must maintain a vast knowledge of the specific laws of operating a truck in the United States. They must also demonstrate their ability to adjust their driving habits to reflect changes in construction zones, heavy traffic, and bad weather conditions, along with inevitable factors.
Some driving schools in Arizona include:
|Southwest Truck Driver Training||Tucson||(888) 890-9609|
|C.D.L. Truck School, Inc.||Phoenix||(602) 278-9159|
|Cochise College||Wilcox||(520) 384-4502|
|Cochise College||Sierra Vista||(800) 966-7943|
|HDS Truck Driving Institute||Tuscon||(520) 721-5825|
|Western Truck School||Tuscon||(520) 806-8290|
|AIT Truck Driver Training||Phoenix||(602) 457-3294|
|M.S. Carriers Professional Driving Academy||Phoenix||(602) 353-4045|
By taking classes like these, we can prevent truck driver inexperience by providing them with the knowledge and skills necessary to operate these large vehicles. However, with trucking companies offering inadequate training, and as a result, causing injury, it is necessary to speak with an experienced truck accident attorney.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
