While some motor vehicle accidents result only in property damage, others result in severe injuries or death. In fact, in 2016 the National Safety Council estimated that 40,000 people died in motor vehicle accidents and 4.6 million roadway users were injured seriously enough to require medical attention at an estimated cost to society of $432 billion.
A motor vehicle accident, also referred to as a “traffic collision,” or a “car accident,” occurs when a motor vehicle strikes or collides with another vehicle, a stationary object, a pedestrian, or an animal.
At Rack Law Group, we focus on the following types of motor vehicle accidents:
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Semi-Truck Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- RV Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Boat Accidents
- Airplane Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
Whether an accident occurs while you are in a car, truck, semi-truck, RV, bus, boat, motorcycle, or bicycle, and whether the collision is with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, or a stationary object, Rack Law Group has the experience to assist you.
A serious auto accident is traumatic for both victims and their families, with injuries and consequences that may last months, years, or even a lifetime. In such cases, insurance companies will try to avoid giving proper compensation to injured parties, while the at-fault driver’s legal team will be working to obtain evidence and defend their client. Never forget that insurance companies have one simple goal: to settle your case as swiftly and with as little cost as possible. While the insurance companies may try to pressure you into a quick settlement and inadequate compensation, or even aggressively defend the wrongdoer against your case, hiring the right lawyer can make a significant difference in your recovery and the compensation you receive.
Due to the massive size and weight of semi-trucks and their trailers, semi-truck accidents can result in substantially more devastating injuries than car accidents. Because the consequences of being struck by a semi-truck can be significantly more severe than being struck by a car, semi-trucks, their drivers, and motor carriers are more heavily governed and subject to stricter state, federal, and industry-wide regulations. Stricter regulations mean different legal remedies. Accordingly, semi-truck accidents must be treated substantially different than car accidents. If your attorney does not know the difference and does not know how to properly represent you for injuries sustained in a semi-truck accident, your settlement amount could be substantially lower.
Some of the most common causes of semi-truck accidents include speeding, tailgating, failure to signal, improper passing, improper merging, improper lane change, driver fatigue, driver inattentiveness, worn tires, worn brakes, defective safety equipment, improper vehicle maintenance, improper driver training, improper loading of cargo, and improper securing of cargo. It should be noted that not only can the driver or the carrier be held liable for negligence, but alternate negligent parties may also include the owner of the semi-truck, the dispatcher, the carrier safety director, the carrier safety committee, the driving instructor, the cargo loader, the cargo inspector, the vehicle maintenance inspector, or even third-party employers.
As a result of the complexity of semi-truck accidents, if you or a loved one has been struck by and suffered as a result of a debilitating or deadly tractor-trailer accident, it is imperative to contact Rack Law immediately.
Property Damage / Vehicle Repairs
Handling your own property damage after being involved in a motor vehicle accident, especially after sustaining a severe injury, can be tedious, complicated, and produce a substantially less than adequate pay out.
Most law firms know this. They also know that they cannot collect a fee on property damage. Accordingly, they leave the tough job up to you. An individual can spend up to 30 hours handling their own property damage and at times will collect several thousands of dollars less than they are rightfully owed by the at-fault party’s insurance company.
At Rack Law Group, we handle property damage for free. In the event your vehicle is declared a total loss, we arrange for the at-fault party’s insurance provider to issue a check directly to you for the fair market value of your vehicle. Conversely, in the event your vehicle is not declared a total loss, we arrange a rental car for you, we arrange for your vehicle to be transported to an auto-body shop, we arrange for the at-fault party’s insurance provider to inspect and provide an estimate for repairing your vehicle, we arrange for the auto-body shop to disassemble, inspect, and provide an accurate fair market estimate for repairing your vehicle, we arrange for your vehicle to be repaired, and we arrange for the at-fault party’s insurance provider to pay the auto-body shop directly. And the best part about the Rack Law Group is that we do this for free.

Time Is Of The Essence!
Arizona’s statute of limitations places restrictions on how long a person has to file a lawsuit after they are injured. This is to prevent people from trying to make a claim for an injury they received after a certain period of time. Once the statute of limitations has expired, a person can no longer file a claim or attempt a lawsuit. This Arizona statute has prevented countless injured individuals from collecting millions of dollars that they were lawfully entitled to. Don’t make the same mistake.
Time is of the essence. It is imperative to contact Rack Law online or call 855-RACK-LAW (855-722-5529) before it is too late!
