It can be difficult sharing the roads with large trucks. Because of their size and limited visibility in the driver's seat, trucks are difficult to maneuver even when there is no negligence involved. When trucks are involved in an accident, the resulting injuries to drivers and passengers of smaller cars can often be serious, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, amputations and even death.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, the truck accident attorneys of NRS Injury Law can help you receive the compensation you need to recover. Our attorneys will work to ensure that you are fully compensated for your injury, for immediate damages and for more long-term expenses such as costs for rehabilitation and lost earning capacity.

Truck driver negligence and other causes of trucking accidents

One of the most common causes of devastating truck accidents is truck driver negligence. Common types of truck driver negligence include:
  • Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to yield to smaller vehicles
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Speeding
Commercial truck drivers and trucking companies must operate under very specific safety regulations. When they fail to follow these regulations, accidents often result. In addition to the negligence of drivers, truck accidents are commonly caused by:
  • Negligent hiring of truck drivers
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded vehicles
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance
  • Truck defects and manufacturer negligence
