Deadly Semi-truck Accidents in Nevada

A huge 18-wheeler can cause life-changing injuries in a traffic accident. Nevada is a vital state for the nation's transportation network, and large trucks are all over the state's roads and highways. The latest statistics from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show that 385 people died as a result of 360 trucking accidents that were reported throughout the state. Fatigue, intoxication, and speed are frequently cited as causes of semi-truck collisions, and many truck drivers are pushed to work long hours, putting themselves and others on the road at serious risk. If you recently lost someone close to you in a deadly trucking accident, you should turn to a qualified personal injury lawyer in order to pursue a wrongful death claim.

You must be fully informed about your legal rights after a catastrophic collision to make sure you can pursue justice during this difficult time. Under Nevada state law, the surviving family members of the deceased can obtain financial compensation on the deceased's behalf if it is found that negligence had a role in the fatal accident.
