Motorcycle Accident Info
Big rig crashes happen all across the US, including Arizona. While these accidents happen for a number of reasons, they often have two things in common—truck accidents frequently cause severe injuries and death, and the people most often hurt aren’t the ones inside of the truck.
Truck accidents can happen for any number of reasons—drunk driving, speeding, improper handling, violation of guidelines regarding work schedules, company policies that incentivize drivers to break the law, mechanical failure of overused truck parts, damaged roadways, reckless driving by other vehicles nearby, and so on and so forth.
Compared to the sheer size of your average big rig, most passenger vehicles have little in the way of protection when it comes to collisions with these much larger vehicles—even drivers and passengers who wear seatbelts can often face traumatic injuries when they’re involved in a truck accident:
If someone else is responsible for your injuries, it’s only fair that they’re held responsible. Sadly, truck accident claims can be complicated. In many cases, the at-fault driver and their attorney will try to argue that you caused the crash, not them. That’s where Blackwell Ruiz comes in.
If you or one of your loved ones has been injured in a truck crash in the state of Arizona, it’s time to get help. Our team’s knowledge and experience is here to help you get your life back on track—and win the compensation you deserve.
Slip & Fall: $150k Recovered
Mr. Ruiz, in my opinion, fought and won an unwinn-able lawsuit with Bank of America for me. He kept digging until he found enough evidence to convince them they could not win. I have nothing but praise for Lawrence and would gladly hire him again if the need ever arose.

Legal Questions? Talk to a top attorney
Besides truck accidents, the attorneys at Blackwell Ruiz are experienced at handling all manner of personal injury cases, including truck accidents. If you’ve been hurt in the state of Arizona, get in touch with us right away.
Our team proudly represents injured victims throughout Arizona—Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Phoenix truck accident lawyers, Mesa, Chandler, Peoria, Flagstaff, Gilbert, Glendale, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and everywhere in between.
You’ll find that one of the most common ways personal injury lawyers charge clients is by contingency. That means firms like Blackwell Ruiz receive a percentage of your total payout—and you pay nothing until you win.
Simple truck accident cases involving small sums of money can be resolved without the expertise of an attorney, but the fact is that personal injury cases are rarely simple—and victims who represent themselves tend to receive smaller payouts than victims who hire a lawyer.
Were you injured in a truck accident due to the carelessness or negligence of another? Then you could have a case. However, it’s not possible to say for sure until you’ve consulted with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
No. Blackwell Ruiz offers free case evaluations and consultations, and we don’t charge you anything until we win. You have enough to think about right now without worrying about legal fees.
That all depends. If you look at the total amount of time that passes from you contacting a lawyer to getting your compensation, it will vary a lot from person to person. As a general rule, more complicated cases involving large sums of money tend to take longer to resolve.
Our top priority is winning you a fair payout that covers all of your expenses, and our team is usually able to do that without going to court. But if a settlement isn’t possible, know that you can count on us to fight for you both in and out of the courtroom.
If possible, collect as much information as you can about the accident—witness testimonies, insurance and driver’s license information, photographs, etc. And above all else, seek medical attention ASAP.
Arizona’s statute of limitations for different personal injury cases can vary based on how you were injured, and can be confusing. That’s one of the reasons why it’s so important to work with an experienced truck accident lawyer.
In the early stages of your case, estimation is extremely difficult. If an attorney tells you how much your case is worth, take it with a grain of salt—they probably just want you to sign up immediately. As your case progresses, it will become easier to estimate your payout based on insurance policies, legal maximums, etc.
Even when you don’t feel hurt, you could still have a case. Immediately after your accident, adrenaline may stop you from experiencing the full effects of your injury until later. In some cases, it could be weeks until you know just how hurt you really are.
