Fighting For Truck Accident Victims in Nevada

Thousands of accidents occur every year in which people are killed that involve large commercial trucks. These massive vehicles, such as tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, big rigs, tankers, and more can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded and can be 70 to 80 feet long. When colliding with smaller vehicles, they can inflict enormous damage resulting in serious or catastrophic injury and death to others. The physical, emotional, and financial consequences for truck accident victims can be extreme. Temporary and permanent disability can result, leaving victims and their families without the resources to secure the best possible care for their short-term and long-term needs.

At Sierra Nevada Injury Lawyers, we represent those who have suffered harm due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others. Personal injury claims involving trucks can be much more complicated than those in standard car accidents due to many factors and potentially liable parties that may be involved. Commercial trucks are subject to state and federal regulations that also need to be investigated for violations. Furthermore, you will be going up against large trucking companies and their corporate insurers who will work hard to negate or discount your claim. Putting our experienced and aggressive team on your side gives you a fighting chance to recover maximized compensation for your losses and damages.

Truck Accident Statistics In Nevada

Large commercial trucks cross our state highways and roads all year long. The entire Las Vegas area is dependent on these trucks to deliver the goods needed to keep our economy going. While trucking accidents occur less often than other traffic accidents, when they do occur they can be dangerous and deadly.

According to the statistics by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration FMCSA, 158,000 people were injured and over 4,000 died in large truck crashes in 2019. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has reported that in 2020, passenger vehicle occupants comprised 97 percent of those who died in trucking accidents. This is because large trucks are often 20 to 30 times heavier than passenger vehicles. Furthermore, they have large blind spots, take much longer to stop, and their greater ground clearance can lead to passenger cars under-riding them in crashes.

Truck drivers and the companies they work for are subject to higher standards and regulations, such as those set by the FMCSA.
