Because of their large size and greater weight, big trucks need more room to maneuver on the road. Drivers need more room to stop. Attempting to quickly maneuver a big truck can cause the trailer to jackknife, leading to even more serious loss of control. Not only that, when big trucks cause accidents, victims may suffer more serious injuries due to the truck’s weight and the lower level of protection offered by smaller vehicles. Did you suffer serious injuries in a truck accident? You may need a Nevada truck accident attorney to help fight on your behalf.
After any kind of accident, the first thing you should do is to seek medical attention, even if you don’t think you have sustained any serious injuries. There exists a vast array of injuries that you may not notice, but a medical practitioner will. Once treated, remember to ask for a copy of your prescriptions and any treatment recommended by the doctor in order to better sustain your claim.
Because of the weight and mass of trucks, truck accidents lead to large amounts of property damage, increased bodily injury, and a higher chance of death than other types of collisions. It’s likely law enforcement showed up at your truck accident and completed a police report. If you didn’t speak with the police because you went to the hospital or they did not show up at the scene, Nevada law requires you to IMMEDIATELY file a police report whenever property damage, bodily injury, or death occurs.
After a truck accident, you may wonder if a lawyer will prove themselves worth the investment—or if you can even afford one. At Benson & Bingham Accident Injury Lawyers, LLC, we start with a free consultation. We accept truck accident clients on a contingency fee basis. Oftentimes, we can help clients:
Getting a fair settlement for a truck accident depends on many different factors, such as the severity and extent of your injuries, the extent of your material damages involving your vehicle or other personal belongings, the aspects involved in the accident and, of course, who was at fault. An experienced truck accident attorney in Nevada can help you get fair compensation.
Most personal injury cases that involve motor vehicle accidents settle long before they go to court. Your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company(s) who represent the truck driver, his employer, and/or third party to reach an agreement that provides you fair compensation for your injuries and losses related to the truck accident.
In some cases liability might not be clear and the defense might be unwilling to offer full and fair compensation. When settlement isn’t an option, our attorneys are skilled litigators who will aggressively fight for you in a Nevada court.
Including running out of the road or into oncoming traffic, losing control of the vehicle due to road or weather conditions, speeding, or other reasons.
Excessive speed, abrupt steering, improper truck maintenance, or even an over-the-limit weight or improper securement of cargo can lead to rollover truck accidents.
When a rear-end collision involves any type of truck, due to their size, weight, and speed, the repercussions can be catastrophic for the victims.
The larger the truck, the larger the blind spots. Combined with carelessness, tiredness or distracted drivers and you have the most common causes for truck accidents.
While not that common, there are still many reasons for tire blow-outs and, combined with speed or high heat, they are still a danger on the road.
When a truck driver loses control of the vehicle, jackknifed accidents occur and can end up blocking multiple traffic lanes, leading to one or even multi-vehicle pileup.
Wide turns are difficult maneuvers and many things can go wrong. Contact Benson & Bingham’s skilled attorneys to fight for your rights.
