Truck Accident Injuries

Las Vegas Truck Accident Injury Lawyers

When the driver and passengers of a non-truck vehicle such as a car, SUV or light truck are in a serious collision with a large truck, they are the ones who face the greatest risk of being hurt or even killed. At the Las Vegas law firm Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, truck accident injury cases are handled with the goal of obtaining fair compensation for victims and their families.

Huge Trucks Cause Serious Injuries

Trucks that are considered “large” are over 10,000 pounds. This category of trucks includes semis (tractor-trailers), single-unit large trucks, and some heavy cargo vans. There are thousands of large trucks in motion on the roads and highways around Las Vegas and throughout Nevada everyday, including tractor-trailers with huge loads and logging trucks. Some trucks are carrying hazardous materials that are flammable, explosive, poisonous, or radioactive. Other trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds (40 tons).

Rear-End Collisions Are Common

The most common types of large truck accidents are:

  • Large truck hitting the back end of a non-truck vehicle such as a car
  • Non-truck hitting the back of a large truck
  • One truck hitting another truck from behind

Truck accident injuries resulting from these kinds of collisions are often very serious.

Difficult Maneuvering, Braking

Large trucks can be difficult to maneuver quickly, especially when they are carrying a heavy load (or are overloaded trucks). It is not easy to brake and stop a large truck when it is moving at freeway speeds. When a large truck hits the back of a smaller vehicle, it often runs over the smaller vehicle. Such truck accident injury cases often involve fatalities.

Tremendous Losses

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, in 2006 approximately 4,990 people were killed in crashes involving a large truck and another 106,000 were injured. Truck accident injuries have tremendous costs in terms of loss of life, permanent injuries, loss of jobs and future income. The grave losses suffered by a family whose member(s) have been hurt in a truck accident are both financial and emotional.
