FAQs for Trucking Accident Victims:

“What should I do immediately after a trucking accident?”

Your immediate priority should be safety. Seek medical attention for any injuries and contact law enforcement to report the accident. Gather evidence from the scene, including photographs, witness statements, and the truck driver’s information, to support your claim.

“Do I need to hire a lawyer for my trucking accident case?”

While it’s not mandatory, hiring a personal injury lawyer with experience in trucking accidents can significantly benefit your case. A lawyer can investigate the accident, handle negotiations with insurance companies, and ensure your rights are protected throughout the claims process.

“How can I prove the truck driver’s negligence in causing the accident?”

Proving negligence in a trucking accident case requires evidence such as the truck’s black box data, driver logs, maintenance records, and witness testimony. Your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence and build a strong case demonstrating the truck driver’s liability.

“What compensation can I seek for my trucking accident injuries?”

Victims of trucking accidents may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and other damages. Your lawyer will assess the full extent of your losses and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.

“What if the trucking company denies responsibility for the accident?”

If the trucking company denies responsibility for the accident or offers a low settlement, don’t give up hope. Your lawyer can advocate for your rights, negotiate with the trucking company’s insurance, or pursue legal action through a lawsuit to seek the compensation you deserve. 
“What’s the value of my case?”

It depends. It varies on a case-by-case basis under Nevada law. Numerous factors contribute to its valuation such as your involvement in the accident, present and future work capabilities, extent of pain and suffering, earning capacity, lost wages, injury severity, medical expenses, and incident specifics all play roles in determining its value.
