Paradise, Nevada may be less well known to visitors, but as the home of the University of Nevada, McCarran International Airport addition, and numerous hotels and casinos, it gets more than its share of traffic. In addition to residents, students, and tourists commuting throughout the area, drivers find themselves sharing the road with numerous semi-trucks and tractor trailers making commercial deliveries. Cars are no match for these big rigs when it comes to being involved in an accident, and the injuries sustained are often severe. When you are involved in a truck accident, our Paradise injury attorneys are here to provide the professional legal representation you need, defending your interests against the trucking companies and their insurers so you can get the compensation you need to recover.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there are nearly 4,000 driver fatalities each year as the result of truck accidents, while as many as 90,000 others suffer serious injuries At Naqvi Injury Law, we represent those injured in the following types of truck accidents:
In any of the above crashes, the truck driver has the size and bulk of their vehicle to protect them. Unfortunately, it is often other motorists who suffer the most severe and potentially life threatening harm.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that the majority of trucking accidents are due to errors on the part of the truck driver, problems with cargo, or poor truck maintenance. While the reasons may seem obvious, you will still need to prove your case.
This involves collecting police and traffic reports, statements from witnesses at the scene, and video footage from nearby traffic lights or businesses. Photos should be taken where the accident occurred, and you may need to consult with an accident reconstruction expert.
All of this can be difficult to do on your own, particularly when recovering from serious injuries. At Naqvi Injury Law, we have the knowledge and resources needed to build a strong case on your behalf, ensuring your best chance for success.
When a truck accident occurs, you will likely be dealing with the trucking company, rather than the driver. These companies have deep pockets, and even if you prove fault in your case, their insurers may attempt to deny or undervalue your claim. If you accept a settlement, you will be forfeiting your right to further compensation.
Before accepting any offers, contact our experienced injury attorneys first. We can negotiate with the trucking company and their insurers on your behalf, and assist you in getting the maximum amount you will need to recover. In the event a settlement cannot be reached, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, with damages including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
