You likely pass construction sites during your daily commute. Workers build new buildings, repair damaged roadways, and add new highways in major cities like Las Vegas. Construction vehicles are necessary to construction workers because they can easily haul heavy machinery, scaffolding, dirt, beams, and other materials. Unfortunately, they pose a risk to other drivers and passengers. If there’s an accident, the occupants of smaller vehicles typically suffer more significant injuries than the truck driver.
You deserve the opportunity to hold the truck driver liable and seek the compensation you need to recover from your injury. Call Adam S. Kutner Accident & Injury Attorneys at (702) 382-0000 to learn more about we can help. One of our Las Vegas construction vehicle accident attorneys will be happy to meet with you for a free consultation.

Construction vehicles are familiar sights in growing cities. Visiting tourists, growing populations, and old buildings and highways requiring some TLC mean drivers must navigate construction zones and share roadways with large vehicles.
Many are long, heavy, and contain massive cargo and toxic substances. If they collide with small cars, they can cause significant damage, severe injuries, and even death. The most common types of construction vehicles you might see in Las Vegas are:
Truck drivers must obtain special licensing and go through extensive training before operating construction vehicles on public roadways. They have to navigate through heavy traffic and around any obstacles they encounter.
Human error and inexperience commonly cause accidents. If the truck driver or their employer contributed to the crash, you might be entitled to financial compensation from an insurance claim or lawsuit.
Sometimes, motor vehicle accidents happen because someone is in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s merely an accident, and no one is at fault. However, there are other times when negligence or carelessness are to blame.
The most common causes of accidents involving construction vehicles are:
It’s critical that you reach out to Adam S. Kutner Accident & Injury Attorneys immediately following a construction vehicle accident. If any of these causes were the reason you suffered injuries, we could help you hold the driver accountable. You have the right to pursue compensation, so you’re not forced to pay for your medical bills and other expenses out of pocket.
Holding the construction vehicle driver liable for an accident means seeking compensation from them for your losses. These losses might include:
When you file an insurance claim, you’re not pursuing compensation directly from the at-fault driver. Instead, you’re seeking a settlement from their insurance company. Federal regulations require trucking companies to purchase liability insurance for their drivers. You might be entitled to the maximum possible settlement, depending on various factors associated with the accident.
The factors that could contribute to the monetary value of your case are:
Generally speaking, an accident victim could pursue higher compensation for more severe injuries. Minor injuries typically result in a lower settlement because the medical bills are often insignificant.
The Las Vegas construction vehicle accident attorneys of Adam S. Kutner Accident & Injury Attorney can review all losses and contributing factors to calculate the monetary value of your case. We can negotiate with the insurance company for the financial award we believe is fair. If they refuse to settle for the number we demand or deny your claim, we might be able to initiate a lawsuit.
The courts strictly enforce the timeframe for filing a lawsuit. Nevada has a two-year statute of limitations. You must initiate legal action within two years of the accident date. If the deadline passes and you attempt to file suit anyway, the judge will likely dismiss your case.
Many people start with an insurance claim and pursue a lawsuit if the insurance company denies it. You might think two years is adequate, but you could encounter obstacles that delay the progress of your claim. If you wait too long before hiring an attorney and working on your case, time could run out before you get the chance to file a lawsuit to seek compensation through the court system.
Another law you should know about is modified comparative negligence. A jury could diminish the monetary value of your case if they determine that your actions contributed to the accident in any way. It’s critical that you don’t admit fault, even if you believe you were partially responsible. If the jury assigns you with a percentage of fault, you could end up with much less compensation than you need.
To give you an example, let’s say your losses total $100,000. If the construction vehicle driver was 100% to blame for your injuries, you could pursue compensation for the total amount of losses you suffered. However, if a jury finds that you share 20% of the fault for the crash, they will reduce the maximum financial award you can recover to $80,000. If they determine that you were at least 51% at fault, you would be prohibited from recovering any amount of compensation.

“I was in an accident November the twenty sixth, rear ended. I watched several commercials on tv after being in a lot of pain I decided to call Mr. Kutners office because I like the way that he presented himself on TV.
My experience has been very good, from the girl who answers the phone all the way back to the very last person I talked to. A lady came out to see me the very next day after I made the phone call, she was very personal, very professional, and she came right to my home which saved me from looking for someone to take me into the office.
I got my car within two weeks and they were very helpful in finding doctors for me, which I had to go to more than one.
I would recommend Mr. Kutner. He is very personal, the staff is very personal from the telephone girl all the way down, very personal, very professional. They don’t make you feel like just a number and someone they’re working with, they make you feel like you’re at home.”
