Las Vegas Truck Accidents
Auto accidents involving large vehicles such as semi-trucks and tractor-trailers, can be extremely devastating. With their size and freight loads, even a minor impact can lead to serious injuries, or even wrongful death.
Truck accidents can be highly complicated, as their lawsuits will uniquely involve a vast number of parties, including: the truck carrier or company and owner, insurance company, broker, and attorneys representing either of the parties.
Please keep in mind that the handling of truck-accident claims is very different from that of car-accident claims. Do not let the legal system, the complexity of the claims, or pressure from insurance companies threaten you to give up your rights after the accident. Our experienced legal team at the Law Offices of Lawrence C. Hill will fight for your justice. We promise to work hard and seek the compensation that you deserve.
The 5 most common causes of truck accidents are:
- Driver errors – including driver fatigue, distraction, lack of attention, or substance abuse
- Equipment failures within the truck
- Weather conditions
- Overloading of the truck
- Inadequate training, including insufficient knowledge of safety measures
Truck-related accidents can be complicated, so it is very important for victims to seek legal representation from an experienced truck-accident attorney. The proper maintenance and operation of commercial vehicles is regulated at state levels, as well as federal levels. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations often apply to truck-accident cases involving operator error.
Identifying the at-fault parties in a truck accident case is also very important, as there may be multiple entities responsible for the incident. The cause of the accident can be related to the truck company’s training, maintenance program, or driver’s instruction manual. It is necessary for the victims to seek representation from a knowledgeable legal team, lead by an experienced attorney, who are familiar with truck accident cases, as establishing fault can become very complicated.
