Truck Accident Injuries
Large trucks like tractor trailers and 18-wheelers often cause severe accidents with catastrophic and even fatal injuries. A big-rig truck can weigh more than 80,000 pounds and be 20 times larger than a passenger vehicle. And because many truck accidents occur on highways involving speeding trucks, the results can be devastating. With so much at stake, it’s critical you have an experienced Las Vegas truck accident lawyer working on your case. We can work with you every step of the way, helping you pursue compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other accident-related damages.
Truck accident claims require an immediate and thorough investigation of the facts. These complex cases often require the hiring of someone who specializes in accident reconstruction. We may need to examine the truck’s “black box” data and survey the road and accident scene. Such claims require a full understanding of the state and federal regulations that may apply.

How are truck accidents different from car accidents?
Unlike car accidents, you often do not deal with just another driver and his or her insurance company after a truck accident. Instead, truck accidents often involve several different companies. There’s the company that owns the truck’s cab itself. Sometimes, a different company owns the trailer. And the contents of the trailer itself might even involve a third corporation. And a fourth company might be responsible for loading the contents and a fifth company for unloading the truck. And in each case, there are often several different insurance companies and lawyers involved, representing each company’s interests. That’s why it’s critical that you have someone you can trust on your side looking out for your best interests.
