- Motorcycle Versus Truck Collison Information
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, 103,423 motor vehicle collisions occurred in 2011, causing 825 fatalities or an 8.7 percent increase from the previous year. Operating a motorcycle or truck on the Arizona roads and highways has a great potential for danger.
With about 2.26 vehicle-related deaths occurring each day in Arizona, knowing what to do following a motorcycle or truck accident is essential. When it comes to accident severity, motorcycles and trucks simply do not mix. Motorcycles are the most hazardous kind of motor vehicle available today. The enormous size and weight of trucks make these vehicles the largest dangers on the roads.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck or motorcycle accident, our Phoenix personal injury attorney is able and prepared to guide you through the legal process.

The Dangers Of Motorbike Collisions
Motorbike collisions occur for a variety of reasons, some of which are out of the motorists hands. As more and more vehicles fill the roadways in Arizona, traffic congestion increases. The increase in the number of cars, trucks, and bikes on the roads suggests a higher propensity for a collision to occur.
In 2011, 2,553 people in Arizona were injured due to a motorcycle crash. As the popularity of bike’s increase, as does the number of motorbike-related vehicle fatalities. In fact, over half of the bike accidents in 2011 occurred with no violation in driver behavior. This indicates the great hazards associated with operating a bike with traffic congestion, high speeds and other large vehicles on the road.
If you have been injured in a serious collision, a Phoenix personal injury attorney from Phillips Law Group is dedicated to fighting for your justice.
Big Rig Crash Statistics
In the United States, every 16 minutes a tractor-trailer accident causes an injury or fatality. As such large vehicles, these vehicles present an elevated level of danger to both themselves and the other vehicles on the roads. Jackknife crashes, for instance, result in the death of the truck driver 1 out of every 10 collisions and often wipe out anything in their path – including riders that are innocently caught up in the crash.
The majority of large, commercial vehicles can weigh upwards of 20 to 30 times more than a typical passenger vehicle. This variance in weight leads to severe injuries when an impact occurs. Truck wrecks have been known to take place all over the state of Arizona, especially on the highways and tollways where long distances are involved.
Motorcycles Versus Trucks
The enormous size difference between a motorbike compared to most commercial vehicles put riders in an incredibly vulnerable position. Not only are these types of vehicles enormous, they have significant blind spots associated with them – big rig blind spots paired with small motorbikes can create a disastrous situation for everyone involved.
While both truck drivers and motorbike riders must be aware of one another on the road, often times these two particular vehicles have trouble co-existing. While the percentages of 18 wheeler and motorcycle collisions are somewhat smaller than that of automobiles, the severity of an injury and the possibility of death increases greatly.

Definitely recommend! Awesome
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
