FAQs about truck accident cases
What happens if you get hit by a truck?
If you get hit by a truck, you should immediately seek medical attention. Your injuries may be severe because trucks are so large compared to other vehicles on the road. If you’re a driver, you must report the accident to the police. Even if you’re not a driver, it’s essential 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.
Is Nevada a no-fault state for truck accidents?
No, Nevada is not a no-fault state for truck accidents. Instead, 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.
What happens when a CDL (commercial) driver has an accident?
When a CDL driver has an accident, different laws may apply to the investigation of the accident than 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.
What parties may be liable for a truck accident?
The truck driver and their employer may be liable for a truck accident. Even a vehicle manufacturer may sometimes be responsible for a truck accident. A driver’s employer is often liable for the actions of their driver. In addition to liability, because the driver is a company representative, 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, including each party in your legal claim is critical to maximizing your compensation.
Will my accident case go to trial?
Very few truck accident cases go to trial. In fact, only about two percent of truck accident cases do. In all of the other cases, the parties reach an agreement about how to resolve the case. You might worry about getting grilled on the witness stand if you’re hurt in a truck accident. But don’t worry. It’s very unlikely that will ever happen.
One of the ways that our skilled team advocates for you is by building the evidence in your case as strongly as possible. When you have strong evidence for your claim, the other side will likely agree to pay you without needing a trial. If they know their 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 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:
- The driver is rushing to meet a tight delivery deadline
- The driver is tired due to driving for long periods
- The driver is stressed and tired, not paying enough attention to the other drivers and the road
- It is difficult to see blind spots from a large truck
- The driver does not leave enough space for his giant vehicle between other vehicles
- Mechanical failure and defective components
- Overloading of the truck
- Inadequate training as to driving technique, safety concerns, and defensive driving
Trucking accidents can be quite complicated, and you need to seek legal representation from an experienced trucking accident attorney. Semi-trucks are regulated not only on a state level but also on a federal level. Your attorney must understand 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, several entities may be responsible for the accident. For example, if the truck accident resulted from 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 sufficient work.
Establishing fault can become complicated, so you must seek competent representation from an attorney familiar with these cases.
