Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Searchlight
Nestled between two mountain ranges, the town of Searchlight is considered by many to be one of the best in the US – with strong choices in the arts, entertainment, recreation, accommodation and food service industries. Famous tourist attractions in Searchlight include Image Lair and El Dorado Canyon Mine Tours.
This town has a total land area of 13.1 square miles and estimated population of 539. It has a desert climate which is characterized by hot summers and cool winters, its altitude significantly adding to the cool evening temperature.
People in the community of Searchlight believe that this census-designated place in Clark County, Nevada may have received its name from a common tool used in searching for minerals in the years of the gold mine boom. Its last gold mine, however, cesed operations in 1953.
Today, leading industries that generate employment and income in Searchlight are mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction.
While the oil and gas extraction industry provide employment opportunities for the Searchlight community, the bustling activity also raises some road safety risks particularly truck accidents.
Many accidents in rural areas, roads and interstate highways involve large trucks, including single-vehicle accidents where a truck has overturned, struck an object on the side of the road, or collided with another vehicle.
Due to the massive size and weight of these trucks, motorists, passengers and pedestrians that are involved in truck accidents suffer serious physical injuries and even death.
Factors that lead to truck accidents are often driver-related such as:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver error
- Losing control after over-correcting and on a curve
- Distracted driving
If you or someone you know is involved in a truck accident, your Searchlight truck accident lawyer can help you obtain the fair value of compensation from the party responsible which can be the truck driver, employer or truck maintenance service or components manufacturer, depending on the circumstances of the accident.
