Commercial trucking accidents are seldom minor and in most cases cause devastating personal injuries and sometimes wrongful deaths.

A commercial truck driver carries a special designated state of Arizona issued license that is obtained only after significant training in commercial truck driving.

An 18 wheeler trucking accident can occur as a result too many hours on the road or what is commonly referred to as sleep deprivation of the truck driver.

The injury attorneys at Thompson Law Firm in Phoenix have significant experience in helping clients who have been in a trucking accident.  Our offices are conveniently located in ChandlerPeoria, and North Phoenix, and we can meet in-person or over the phone or video call.  You can contact us for a free consultation, or read on to find out more.
