Truck accidents cause tremendous damage throughout Nevada and the United States every day. Each of these wrecks can injure or kill numerous victims. You have the right to pursue compensation from the negligent party who caused your harm in an accident. However, determining liability can be difficult. The insurance companies will aggressively work to reduce their liability to pay out damages. It’s important to contact a skilled truck accident lawyer if you are in this position.
Many car accident lawyers do not have experience representing clients who are hurt by large commercial trucks. These trucks are regulated by state and federal law, and insurance companies use their resources to make sure they don’t have to pay out large sums in catastrophic truck wrecks.

Multiple Parties With Different Insurance Companies May Be Involved
You may feel as though it’s clear that the other driver was at fault in your wreck. However, there are many parties who may hold some responsibility in a truck accident. Your lawyer’s job is to make sure that all details are investigated and compensation is paid by all negligent parties. The trucking company’s insurance companies and lawyers will possibly point the blame to a third party. This can add tremendous complexity to any case. One or several of the following parties may be responsible to pay your damages:
- The truck driver – A reckless driver can cause a terrible if they are distracted, intoxicated, or aggressively driving their truck.
- The truck company – The company who owns the truck has a responsibility to keep it safe for the road. They also must make sure the drivers they hire are properly trained.
- Third parties – This can be many people. Often loaders or truck maintenance companies make mistakes which result in trucks being hazards on roads and highways.
The Insurance Companies In Truck Wrecks Are Often Very Aggressive
Insurance companies will work hard to pay out as little as possible. Many of our clients are shocked at how little their own insurance provider is willing to pay them after an accident. It’s important to contact a knowledgeable truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after being hurt in an accident. Consulting with an attorney will help you understand your rights and options going forward. Many insurance companies will try and rush injured people to sign settlement agreements. This is done in hopes of having the case go away quickly. Unfortunately, rushing to sign a settlement can cause you to miss out on a significant compensation that you and your family deserve. A skilled lawyer will know how to do the following:
- Investigate all details – Federal regulations are complex, and the insurance companies will use their many lawyers to try and intimidate you into signing away your rights. Our lawyers know how to investigate every aspect of your case and make sure money is not left on the table.
- Negotiate for a settlement – Your lawyer will have to build a strong case in order to successfully negotiate an acceptable financial settlement. Without doing this the insurance companies will not fear going to court.
- Win at trial – While most cases don’t go to trial, your lawyer must be prepared for this. Our team has years of successful court experience.
