    Causes of Truck Accident 

    Underlying Causes Of Truck Collisions In Nevada

    In the blink of an eye, an accident involving an 18-wheeler can drastically change lives, leading to lasting harm and limiting one’s ability to enjoy former pastimes. In Nevada, the law allows those injured in such accidents to seek compensation for the physical, emotional, and psychological damage caused by others’ negligence. Truck accidents are particularly complex because they might involve multiple parties such as the driver, the trucking company, manufacturers of the truck or its components, and cargo loaders. Additionally, these parties are governed by a myriad of state and federal regulations aimed at preventing accidents.

    Understanding each party’s role and their specific responsibilities is crucial for securing appropriate compensation. When multiple parties contribute to an accident, each should be held accountable according to their share of fault. At Miller Personal Injury Attorneys, we bring decades of litigation experience to the table, advocating for our clients against negligent truck drivers and trucking companies. Our deep involvement in this legal field has enabled us to secure substantial compensation for our clients, recognizing the profound impact of severe injuries on their lives and striving for just compensation within the law.

    If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries or fatality due to a truck accident, don’t hesitate to contact our Nevada truck accident attorneys. We offer a free case consultation, guiding you through the complex litigation process and vigorously pursuing the full compensation you are legally entitled to.

    Determining the Causes of Truck Accidents

    Truck accidents stem from various causes, each potentially leading to severe injuries and requiring accountability. Understanding the specifics of the accident and its causes is crucial in identifying the liable parties and gathering the necessary evidence to prove negligence. Key causes include:

    • Speeding: Excessive speed is a common factor in truck accidents, often due to drivers trying to meet tight schedules or increase delivery efficiency.
    • Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is a leading cause of accidents, with activities like texting taking a driver’s attention off the road for dangerous lengths of time.
    • Fatigued Driving: Fatigue is particularly prevalent among truck drivers due to long hours on the road, exacerbated by pressures from trucking companies to deliver quickly.
    • Aggressive Driving: Some truck drivers engage in reckless behaviors like tailgating and unsafe lane changes, endangering everyone on the road.
    • Blind Spots: Failing to check blind spots before maneuvers is a common error that can lead to catastrophic accidents.
    • Unfamiliarity with Routes: Driving on unfamiliar routes can increase the risk of accidents if drivers are unprepared for the road’s challenges.
    • Driving Under the Influence: DUI is a serious offense for all drivers, especially for truck drivers who face stricter blood alcohol content limits.
    • Improper Stopping or Parking: Stopping on highways or by roadsides without proper signaling can lead to severe accidents, especially if not properly marked.
    • Reduced Visibility and Unsafe Maneuvers: Lack of visibility due to poor lighting or weather conditions, along with unsafe driving maneuvers, can lead to accidents.
    • Negligent Maintenance: Inadequate maintenance of critical truck components like brakes and tires can lead to failures that cause accidents.
