      Common Types of Truck Accidents

      Commercial trucks are massive in size. They can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and be as long as 75 feet. Some carry consumer goods to retailers or heavy materials to construction sites. Others are necessary to transport injured victims to the hospital.

      Unfortunately, these vehicles can cause catastrophic destruction when they’re involved in accidents. When a large truck and small car collide, the smaller vehicle occupants are more likely to suffer debilitating injuries and death than the truck driver.

      According to 2019 statistics involving collisions with commercial trucks, 4,119 people died. Of those fatalities, only 16% were occupants of trucks, while 67% were passenger vehicle occupants.

      Common types of truck accidents in Las Vegas include:

      • Tow Truck Accidents – People rely on tow trucks for many reasons. If you were in an accident and can’t remove your vehicle from the scene yourself, a tow truck driver can pick it up and transport it to a repair shop, dealership, or junkyard. However, they can cause massive destruction if an accident occurs. If the driver doesn’t correctly secure the vehicle, it could detach from the hitch and become an obstacle other drivers must avoid.
      • Garbage Truck Accidents – Clean residential and commercial properties require garbage trucks to maintain their properties in good condition. These trucks remove trash and other waste and carry them to the landfill. Although they’re necessary for every community around Las Vegas, they also pose a risk to other drivers. They’re top-heavy, making them more susceptible to rolling over if the driver takes a turn too fast or brakes improperly. Additionally, the large container on the back of the vehicle used to store garbage creates large blind spots. Poor visibility can cause the driver to sideswipe a small car traveling alongside them.
      • Bus Accidents – Many people rely on public transportation. Vacationers might take the bus to tour different landmarks. Residents use buses to commute to work or school. These vehicles provide a convenient service, but severe injuries and fatalities can occur if there’s an accident. Some buses don’t have the necessary safety restraints that cars and trucks have. Without a seatbelt to keep the rider firmly in place, the force of a collision could eject them from their seat.
      • Construction Vehicle Accidents – Cement mixers, bulldozers, and other construction vehicles allow workers to complete their work efficiently. They can also avoid injury by hauling beams, dirt, and other heavy materials on a truck instead of people having to do this work by hand. These vehicles are convenient for construction workers but can be dangerous to other drivers. If there’s a collision with a passenger vehicle, the occupants of the car have to contend with the initial impact and any debris that comes flying off the back of the truck. Logs can become deadly projectiles, and hazardous substances could cause severe burns.
      • Emergency Vehicle Accidents – The individuals who drive ambulances, fire trucks, and police vehicles are under constant pressure to save lives. This means they’re allowed to break certain traffic laws, such as when they run red lights. Although they must use their flashing lights and sirens to inform other drivers that they’re approaching, some emergency personnel don’t adequately check for other cars before proceeding through intersections. That can result in a devastating collision.

      Whether you were involved in an accident with one of these vehicles or another commercial truck, you should contact [firm-name] immediately. We can review the details of the crash to determine who was at fault and seek the compensation you deserve.

      FAQs About Truck Accident Cases

      If you get hit by a truck, you should seek medical attention right away. In fact, because trucks are so large compared to other vehicles on the road, your injuries may be severe. If you’re a driver, you must report the accident to the police. Even if you’re not a driver, it’s important to call the police. Although the truck driver may face criminal charges, you may also have the right to file your own civil claim for financial compensation. Your right to collect compensation is based on the negligence laws that apply to truck accidents in your state.

      No, Nevada is not a no-fault state for truck accidents. Rather, Nevada is an at-fault state for truck accidents. No matter your injuries, if the other driver caused them, they may owe you monetary compensation. Nevada’s laws for truck accidents say that the person who causes the accident pays for the damages. Truck accidents often cause significant and severe injuries. Victims have the right to fair compensation for all of their injuries and losses.

      When a CDL driver has an accident, there may be different laws that apply to the investigation of the accident than apply to non-commercial drivers. Liability for a moving violation may result in suspension or termination of the driver’s CDL endorsement even if they do not completely lose their driver’s license. For example, most states have more strict drunk driving laws for commercial drivers than apply to non-commercial drivers. When a CDL driver has an accident, the victim may deserve compensation from the driver or from their employer.

      The truck driver and their employer may be liable for a truck accident. Even a vehicle manufacturer may be responsible for a truck accident in some cases. A driver’s employer is often liable for the actions of their driver. In addition to liability because the driver is a representative of the company, the company itself has a duty to hire and employ only safe drivers. It’s important to consider whether the company and its insurer are parties that may be liable for a truck accident. If they are liable, it’s critical to include each party in your legal claim to maximize your compensation.

      Very few truck accident cases go to trial. In fact, only about two percent of truck accident cases go to trial. In all of the other cases, the parties reach an agreement about how to resolve the case. If you’re hurt in a truck accident, you might find yourself worrying about getting grilled on the witnesses stand. But don’t worry. It’s very unlikely that will ever happen.

      One of the ways that the Adam S. Kutner’s team advocates for you is by building the evidence in your case as strongly as possible. When you have strong evidence of your claim, the other side is more likely to agree to pay you without needing a trial. If they know that legal tactics aren’t going to work in the end, the responsible party is more likely to come to the table with a fair offer for compensation. Our attorneys work diligently until you have the compensation that you deserve.

      Causes of Las Vegas Truck Accidents

      There are many reasons why a truck accident might occur. Some of the more common reasons include:

      1. semi truck and car accidentThe driver is rushing to meet a tight delivery deadline
      2. The driver is tired due to driving for long periods
      3. The driver is stressed and tired, not paying enough attention to other driver and the road
      4. It is difficult to see blind spots from a large truck
      5. The driver does not leave enough space for his giant vehicle between other vehicles
      6. Mechanical failure and defective components
      7. Overloading of the truck
      8. Inadequate training as to driving technique, safety concerns, and defensive driving

      Other Causes Of Trucking Accidents

      Trucking accidents can be quite complicated and it is very important for injured parties to seek legal representation from an experienced trucking accident attorney. Semi-trucks are not only regulated on a state level, they also are regulated on a federal level. It is important that your attorney understands all of these additional regulations.

      Another thing that must be addressed in a trucking accident is the person at fault for the event. In many cases, there may be several entities that are responsible for the accident. For example, if the truck accident was the result of mechanical failure the trucking company may be responsible for failing to provide adequate maintenance or the maintenance company may be to blame for not providing adequate work.

      Because this can become very complicated in establishing fault, it is essential for the victims of a trucking accident to seek competent representation by an attorney who is familiar with these cases.

      Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials

      “When we got into the accident it was April twenty-fifth we were on our way out to dinner, me and my family and my wife and my kid. A car actually hit us from the back coming off of the interstate and it was kinda a hard impact. We were very nervous and scared especially having a baby in the car. We immediately scheduled an appointment for the baby, she had headaches, she complained about her head hurting and we had back pains. We were pretty stiff. After we found Adam Kutner he immediately got us assistance with the chiropractor. His main focus was our pains and were we comfortable. After we finished our chiropractor sessions we immediately got contacted over the phone and told us what our offer was, told us what they were sending to the insurance and about no longer than a week later we got the settlement. I can honestly say without a doubt that Adam Kutner was the best lawyer in Vegas.”
