An object that falls off a truck and hits your vehicle on the freeway. What do you do?

Question: I was following an 18 wheeler on the freeway, and an object flew from the uncovered truck, struck through my windshield and hit me causing me to lose control of the car and wrecking. What do I do? Who is at fault?

Answer: Under Arizona law, the driver of the truck bears fault. If you know the identity of the person, you have a right to make a claim against the insurance. If the identity of the truck could not be ascertained, you have the right to make an uninsured motorist claim under your own auto policy.
