- AZ Armored Truck Injury Attorney
Approximately two out of every three drivers in the United States will be involved in a motor vehicle accident during some time in their life according to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Even worse, a variety of additional reports indicate that a driver in Arizona should expect to be involved in a traffic crash every 10 years. While traffic accidents are certainly likely, those involving large trucks are typically far more severe.
Armored trucks are typically used to transport valuable items such as large amounts of cash for companies (banks and retail stores for example) and are designed to withstand robbery attempts. Any impact with these vehicles presents great danger for the other motorists involved due to the size and weight of these trucks. As such, all Arizona drivers must exercise caution to avoid armored truck accidents at all times.

Injuries from Armored Truck Accidents
Standard armored trucks can weigh up to 55,000 pounds. In contrast, the average passenger vehicle weights about 4,000 pounds. As such, any type of collision between two vehicles with such a significant variance in weight can be deadly. With a number of potentially devastating injuries in these types of accidents, all Arizona motorists must be extremely cautious while traveling in close proximity to armored trucks.
Armored trucks weigh about 14 times that of a typical vehicle. The sheer difference in size between armored trucks and standard vehicles makes the injuries involved in a potential crash devastating. Highway travel marks especially hazardous situations, as the increases in speeds creates a more forceful impact. The following are some of the most common injuries passengers may suffer in armored truck accidents:
- Neck and back injuries
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Rib and torso injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Accidents victims must seek medical attention following any crash. Seeking medical care after collisions involving large trucks, however, are even more crucial. The severity of these crashes tends to be far more significant than that of a typical auto accident. Even worse, many injuries involved in truck accidents take several days to appear. Therefore, any passenger occupant involved in a motor vehicle collision must seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Armored Truck Crash Liability
Establishing liability in any auto accident can be difficult; however, truck accident liability tends to be far more complex due to the special laws regarding these vehicles. Armored trucks are owned and operated by corporations and, as such, these corporations are held responsible for employing the drivers of these trucks. Based upon the specific circumstances in the accident, it is possible that the company will be held liable for the damages involved in the crash.
Negligent employment is another form of potential liability in armored truck accidents. In cases where the company knowingly hired an unqualified driver, a driver with a bad driving record, or a driver with a history of reckless driving behavior, the truck company will be held accountable for the crash.
In addition, in situations where the truck itself was not kept in quality condition, the truck company may be held liable. Any commercial vehicles are required to undergo some form of inspections to make sure that the equipment has no defects. Because the bullet proof material used in armored trucks makes the vehicle heavier, safety precautions must be taken to account for additional weight, longer stoppage time, variance in turning, etc. Those who neglect to do so may be held liable for any injuries and damages caused by the crash. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck collision, Phillips Law Group is here to help.

Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other.
