Avondale, AZ – In a Friday morning incident that sent shockwaves through West Valley, a collision between two semi-trucks on westbound I-10 near Avondale Boulevard resulted in a traffic nightmare for drivers. The crash led to a major disruption as several lanes were blocked, causing significant delays for commuters.

Minor Injuries Reported as Semi-Trucks Crash

According to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers, the collision on February 16, 2024, involved two semis that violently collided, triggering a chain of events that left one of the trucks engulfed in flames. Fortunately, both drivers managed to escape the wreckage with only minor injuries, providing a glimmer of relief amidst the chaotic scene.

Fiery Semi-Truck Accident Leaves Debris Across I-10

Eyewitness accounts and live traffic cameras captured the dramatic aftermath of the collision. The images revealed a badly damaged Amazon semi-truck and a FedEx semi-truck at the center of the crash site. The Amazon truck, unfortunately, burst into flames, intensifying the urgency of the situation. As a result, debris from the collision was scattered across the freeway, compounding the cleanup efforts for officials.

Truck Accident Causes Traffic Disruption and Lane Blockage

As authorities raced to manage the fallout from the collision, several lanes on westbound I-10 were closed off to allow for debris cleanup and accident investigation. The closure led to a significant bottleneck, causing traffic to crawl at a snail’s pace. Commuters and motorists were forced to exercise patience and find alternative routes to their destinations.

Additional Vehicles Involved in the Truck Crash

In addition to the two semi-trucks involved in the collision, three other vehicles were pulled over on the side of the freeway. While it remains unclear whether these vehicles were directly impacted by the collision or pulled over as a result of the ensuing chaos, their presence added to the complexity of the situation.

Investigation Underway After Two Semis Collide

As the cleanup efforts continued, authorities urged motorists to exercise caution and patience while navigating the affected area. Safety remains paramount, and drivers were advised to follow the instructions of law enforcement officers present at the scene. Investigators from the Department of Public Safety will conduct a thorough examination of the crash to determine the exact cause and any potential contributing factors.

Pursuing Justice After a Truck Accident

In the aftermath of a truck accident, victims and their families often face overwhelming challenges. Seeking justice and fair compensation becomes paramount during these difficult times. In this exclusive interview, Attorney Laurence Banville sits down with Kevin Biniazan, a highly respected truck accident attorney based in Arizona. Together, they delve into the legal options available to truck accident victims, the potential damages they can recover, and the importance of seeking experienced legal counsel.

Laurence Banville (LB): Welcome, Kevin.

Kevin Biniazan (KB): Thank you, Laurence.

LB: Kevin, with the recent semi-truck collision on I-10, many individuals and families may be wondering about their legal options. Can you shed some light on how victims of truck accidents can seek justice through civil lawsuits?

KB: Absolutely, Laurence. When someone is injured or loses a loved one in a truck accident due to the negligence of another party, they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. The first step is to consult with an experienced truck accident attorney who can evaluate the case and guide the victims through the legal process.

LB: That’s crucial. So, what factors would determine if someone has a valid claim in a truck accident case?

KB: Several factors come into play, Laurence. It’s important to establish that the accident was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, such as the truck driver, the trucking company, or even the manufacturer of the truck or its parts. We investigate the evidence, review police reports, gather witness statements, and sometimes even employ accident reconstruction experts to build a strong case.

LB: And what kind of damages can victims potentially recover through a civil lawsuit?

KB: Victims of truck accidents may be entitled to various types of damages, including medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and in cases of wrongful death, compensation for funeral expenses and loss of companionship. Each case is unique, and the damages sought depend on the specific circumstances and the extent of the injuries or losses suffered.

LB: It sounds like a complex process. How can an attorney like yourself assist victims and their families in navigating the legal system?

KB: Indeed, it can be overwhelming for those unfamiliar with the legal system. As truck accident attorneys, we guide our clients through every step, from gathering evidence and negotiating with insurance companies to representing them in court if necessary. We strive to ensure that their rights are protected and that they receive fair compensation for their damages.

LB: That’s reassuring to know. Lastly, what advice would you give to individuals who have been involved in a truck accident or have lost a loved one?

KB: My advice would be to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Time is of the essence in these cases, as evidence can be lost or destroyed, and there are strict deadlines for filing lawsuits. By consulting with an experienced attorney, victims and their families can understand their rights, explore their legal options, and take the necessary steps towards justice and fair compensation.

LB: Thank you, Kevin, for sharing your insights and shedding light on the legal recourse available for truck accident victims. Your expertise in this area is invaluable.

KB: It was my pleasure, Laurence. Thank you for having me.
