Motorcycle Accidents

Every years thousands of motorcyclists are severely injured or killed, most often from inattentive drivers. The liability issues surrounding motorcycle accidents render them unlike motor vehicle accidents in a myriad of ways.

Burch & Cracchiolo’s attorneys are proficient at motorcycle accident law and can help you navigate how liability is determined in these accidents, when you might have a defective product claim for your motorcycle and what to do if you are in a motorcycle accident.

Trucking Accidents

Truck accident cases are more complex than automobile accident cases, and it is recommended that if you or a loved one is hurt or killed in a truck accident, you consult an experienced truck accident attorney who has both the knowledge and resources necessary to fight to get you the compensation and justice you deserve.

Trucks often weigh as much as 30 times more than a passenger vehicle, so the smaller vehicle passengers are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries or die in an accident involving a large truck.

Successfully pursuing a commercial trucking claim requires an in-depth understanding of state and federal trucking regulations. The injury law team at Burch & Cracchiolo is experienced in handling claims involving Federal Motor Carrier violations including:

  • Driver Fatigue
  • Unreasonable Schedules
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks
  • Defective Equipment
  • Poorly Maintained Truck
  • Lack of Driver Training and Experience
  • Intoxication

Dog Bites/Animal Attacks

Arizona law states that dog owners are strictly liable for any attacks or injuries caused by their pets. If you were bitten by a dog or otherwise injured by a “dog at large” (not on a lease or in an enclosure), the owner of the dog is strictly liable as long as the victim does not provoke the dog. Homeowner insurance applies to cover damages but it’s often a complicated process. Call us now at 602.234.8780 to know your rights.

Premises Liability Cases/Slip and Fall

If you or someone you care about has suffered a slip and fall or trip and fall that occurred on the premises of a business or property owner, there may be a claim for damages. These cases are often difficult to document and prove, so it is imperative to have a lawyer with the experience and resources to collect evidence and get results. 

In order to prove that business or property owner is liable there must be evidence that they either created the condition, or that they knew or should have known of the danger, or that it was otherwise a foreseeable and ongoing problem traced to the landowner’s business operations.

Prompt investigation and follow up is critical to and you must preserve the following evidence:

  • Photographs or video of the dangerous condition
  • Injuries attributed to the fall
  • Incident Reports
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Prior accidents/claims history

Our attorneys have significant experience with slip-and-fall cases allowing us to investigate the circumstances of your accident and achieve optimum results.
