Injuries and Fatalities in Truck Accidents
Large trucks (greater than 10,000 pounds gross weight) account for a disproportionately high share of injuries and fatalities on the road. Although large trucks are about three percent of the registered vehicles on the road, they are involved in approximately nine percent of fatal crashes. The people in a non-truck vehicle (i.e., car, light truck or SUV) that collides with or is hit by a large truck are invariably the ones who are seriously injured or killed.

Truck accident lawsuits are initiated by the families and individuals who suffer losses due to these unfortunate incidents. Truck accidents in the Las Vegas area may result in great damage and heartache, causing:
