Truck Accident Attorney
No one enjoys the thought of taking on large trucking companies in court or going up against their insurance companies. However, when fighting for compensation after sustaining injuries in an accident involving a large or mid-size truck, a determined truck accident lawyer with experience in this area can be an enormous asset. The dangers of large trucks – aka “big rigs” – are obvious. They’re many times larger than most other vehicles on the roads. Cars, pickup trucks, minivans or motorcycles are at a distinct disadvantage in a collision with a big rig. Our Las Vegas truck accident lawyer at the Drummond Law Firm has handled many personal injury claims involving drivers and passengers injured in accidents with larger trucks. We also handle wrongful death claims resulting from incidents of this type. If you or someone in your family has sustained serious injuries, we may be able to help.
Nevada Truck Accident Statistics
Las Vegas has heavy traffic 24/7 with many big rigs making state-to-state or even cross country trips. Drivers are sleepy, distracted or simply in a hurry to reach their destinations.
In Nevada, 778 tractor-trailer style rigs were involved in accidents in 2010; these accidents resulted in 178 serious injuries and, sadly, 14 fatalities. Dump trucks caused 26 injuries, and flatbeds 39 (plus a single death).
Serious recent accidents in Las Vegas include a 2015 collision between a semi and a taxi with five people inside, which resulted in serious injuries and forced police to close Dean Martin Drive for several hours.
