    Truck Accident Compensation

    Nevada 18-Wheeler Big Rig Truck Accidents

    Truck accidents can have devastating consequences, often resulting in severe injuries, significant property damage, and loss of life. In Nevada, where cities like Las Vegas and Reno see a high volume of commercial trucks, the risk of truck accidents is especially pronounced. Understanding the rights and available compensation is crucial for victims of these unfortunate events. Truck accidents are a significant safety concern throughout the United States, and Nevada is no exception.

    Key Truck Accident Statistics 

    Every year, numerous truck accidents occur in Nevada, varying from minor incidents to deadly crashes. Some key statistics on truck accidents both in Nevada and nationally include:

    The National Safety Council adds that in 2021, 59 trucks were involved in fatal crashes in Nevada, representing 10.4% of all fatal vehicle incidents in the state. Nationally, the year 2020 saw 4,444 fatal truck crashes and 101,000 injury crashes involving large trucks, with the majority (62%) involving collisions between two vehicles. Deadly truck accidents predominantly occur in rural areas and on Interstate highways, with 54% occurring in rural settings, 27% on Interstates, and 13% on rural Interstate highways.

    If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident in Nevada, Miller Personal Injury Attorneys can provide expert legal guidance and support. With our deep knowledge and commitment, we aim to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients, navigating the complexities of truck accident compensation with precision.

    Do You Qualify for Truck Accident Compensation?

    Truck accidents in Nevada can result from various factors, often involving multiple elements that contribute to these serious collisions. Common contributing factors include:

    • Driver Fatigue
    • Distracted Driving
    • Speeding
    • Poor Maintenance

    Due to the significant size and weight disparity between trucks and passenger vehicles, accidents involving commercial trucks are particularly severe. Identifying these factors is critical in determining liability and securing fair compensation for victims who suffer due to these collisions. Understanding and addressing these factors can help mitigate the risks associated with truck accidents on Nevada roads.

    Damages You Could Recover in a Truck Accident Claim
