Commercial trucking accidents are seldom minor and in most cases cause devastating personal injuries and possibly 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.
