Reference-and-Education Alex & Associates was founded by Andrew Alex. The firm has been representing tractor trailer accident victims for over 26 years, and has successfully recovered impressive settlements and verdicts on behalf of their clients for losses in tractor trailer accidents. Tractor trailer accidents are generally complex and accident victims are often seriously and permanently injured. Victims of a trucking accident are entitled to compensation for their injuries, hospital, doctor and other medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent impairment and disfigurement. The victim’s damages may change their life forever and result in medical expenses and lost earnings over the course of a lifetime. It is important to retain an experienced truck accident attorney in Phoenix as soon as possible, as national trucking companies immediately send a team of "company investigators" to the accident scene. They sometimes arrive at the scene at the same time as police and other emergency personnel. Almost all tractor trailer and commercial vehicle accidents involving serious injuries are not settled until a lawsuit is filed and substantial discovery has been performed. The trucking company or its insurance company vigorously defends the case. It is important that your attorney has a great deal of experience handling trucking accidents. Over and above, the partners at Alex & Associates have earned a reputation as good negotiators and winning trial attorneys. According to the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), out of 500,000 tractor trailer accidents each year, about 5,000 are fatal. An accident involving an 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer, or semi-truck is often life-altering, and sometimes fatal, for occupants of a passenger vehicle or pedestrians involved in the accident. Tractor trailer accidents are more complex than car accident cases. A tractor trailer can weigh more than 80,000 pounds and be up to 75 feet in length. Many tractor trailer accidents are caused by driver fatigue. Dan Ramsdell, National Director of The Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers (APITLAmerica), says that one of the most pressing problems in the trucking industry today is fatigued driving, with nearly 40% of big truck crashes being caused by a fatigued driver. A skilled lawyer will determine whether the accident was caused by a fatigued truck driver and, if so, you may be entitled to punitive damages in addition to compensatory losses. Tractor trailer accidents may involve multiple insurance companies, regulatory agencies and law enforcement agencies. Trucking industry regulations allow victims of tractor trailer accidents to bring claims against both the truck driver and the trucking company that employs or contracts with the driver. Tractor trailer accidents are never routine and almost always require a team of leading experts including accident reconstructionists, investigators, log book examiners, doctors, vocational rehabilitation specialists and economists to demonstrate the full value of our client’s claim. Alex & Associates offers the commitment and resources to assemble that team and take the case to trial, or appeal if necessary, to recover maximum compensation for our client. The investigators and expert reconstructionists travel to the scene of the accident to gather their own data, including skid marks, accident debris and other physical evidence at the scene. Eye witnesses and the investigating police officers are interviewed the soonest possible time while the information is fresh. When handling an injury or death claim from a truck accident, a tractor trailer accident attorney from Alex & Associates sends an investigator to the scene of the accident, often on the day that they take your case, to see that evidence is preserved and witness statements are recorded while memories are fresh. Alex & Associates handles 18-wheeler and tractor trailer accidents claims for clients throughout Arizona, California, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and Texas from our offices in the Phoenix area, and they will be happy to assist out-of-state firms in claims handled in Arizona courts.
