Protecting the Drivers of Osino
According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, there were 18,675 auto accidents that resulted in injury in 2010 and according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2013, Nevada suffered 262 fatalities on its roads – with several of them being perpetrated by operators of large trucks and big rigs.
Why Large Trucks Are a Greater Threat
Truck-related accidents occur at a higher rate when it comes to significant injury and wrongful death claims than most others for a simple reason – a semi truck has the weight and therefore the force available to make its impact with another vehicle that much more dire. But weight isn’t the only reason why large trucks pose a greater risk on Interstate 80 in Osino:
- Many drivers suffer from driver fatigue and make poor driving decisions or fall asleep at the wheel
- Several rigs are over their weight limit
- Cargo is often inappropriately secured
- Many drivers become distracted (radio, phones, etc.)
- Some drivers choose to drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (including prescription medications)
- Many of the trucks are under maintained and suffer from mechanical failure or have been equipped with defective equipment
- Drivers are poorly trained
Injuries that result from large trucks accidents are often fatal or are so severe that they can have an impact on individual’s life for many years, if not permanently.
