DUI Limits and Regulations
DUI is an abbreviation for Driving Under the Influence. If a driver has a high blood-alcohol level, driver may said to be DWI, Driving While Intoxicated
It is illegal for motorists to be under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
If a truck driver has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher, he/she is considered to be intoxicated and should not operate any vehicles. If a driver has a BAC of 0.15 or higher it is classified as an extreme case of DUI. The higher a drivers BAC is, the higher the chances of them being in a truck DUI accident.
Truck DUI Accident Lawsuits
As with any auto accident claim, it is necessary to prove another partys negligence in order to receive compensation for your losses. If an accident victims attorney is able to prove that the truck driver was intoxicated, either by the results from a file sobriety test or a breathalyzer that may be enough to prove negligence in a truck DUI accident.
Truck accident lawsuits can be complex due to the fact that many parties may be to blame for the wreck. While a DUI accident may seem like a clear cut case, there may be contributing factors that lead to the crash. That is why its imperative for accident victims to seek legal counsel after a vehicle crash. Retaining a lawyer that has experience in commercial vehicle litigation can improve your chances of receiving a favorable outcome for your lawsuit.

I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
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.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
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. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
