Top Causes of Truck Accidents

While Summerlin is a master-planned community in Nevada without many large trucks (or other traffic) running through it, with the exception of those making deliveries to large grocery and other consumer stores, truck accidents do happen. In fact, Summerlin is accessible via the Summerlin Pkwy., US-95, and the Bruce Woodbury Beltway, all three of which do see a lot of large truck traffic.

Large trucks are essential, but their operation is not always safe. If you are involved in a large truck accident in or around Summerlin, our Summerlin truck accident lawyer can help you.

Truck accidents almost always occur because of human error; rarely is an unforeseeable and unpreventable factor, such as an animal running into the road, to blame for a crash. The top types of human error that lead to truck crashes include:

  • Driver errors. Driver errors are the leading cause of truck accidents, and may involve errors made by the truck driver, errors by the driver of the passenger car, or both. Common driver errors include driving too fast for conditions, driving aggressively, speeding, driving while distracted, misjudging other vehicles’ speed or distance, and driving while impaired.
  • Vehicle errors. Vehicle errors often refer to defects with the vehicle itself, such as a truck that is equipped with defectively manufactured tires, leading to a tire blowout that causes a crash. However, vehicle errors may also include things such as improperly loaded cargo (leading to cargo shifts that cause accidents) or improperly attached trailers, which could lead to a trailer/truck separation.

These are not the only causes of truck accidents, but they are some of the most usual. If you are in an accident caused by a reason other than one listed above, please call us – we can help you.

Truck Accidents Have Tragic Consequences

Truck accidents are usually more serious than are accidents involving only passenger cars due to the weight and size of the vehicles involved. When a passenger car and a large truck collide, the passenger car may be completely destroyed, and the people within it could be left with tragic injuries. Truck accidents leave people with disabilities and lifelong harm, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation and crush injuries, and psychological injuries. These injuries are not just physical and disabling – they can lead to difficult relationships, an inability to work, lost income, and major lifestyle changes. Truck accidents do not just affect those involved in the crash, but also their families. We take this into account as we navigate your claim and represent you throughout the process.

Your Right to Recovery after a Truck Accident in Summerlin

When you are involved in a truck accident that is caused by the negligence of another party, you have a right to seek compensation for your losses. Our truck accident attorneys will investigate the cause of your accident to determine who is at fault, and who should be held liable. While liable parties typically include the trucking company, the truck driver, or the manufacturer or distributor of a defective truck party, we consider all potential causes of your accident and liable parties.

Once our investigation is complete, we will file a claim with the at fault party’s insurance and request payment for your losses. If the demand is not met, we will aggressively negotiate on your behalf to get you the compensation that you deserve. We will help you seek compensation for both your economic and noneconomic losses, including damages for pain, suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
