Traffic on highways in Nevada can be dangerous and crowded. Semi-Tractor trailer lengths can reach up to 57 feet and tens of thousands of pounds. When a fully or even partially loaded truck collides with a car, bicyclist or pedestrian, outcomes can be devastating and sometimes fatal. There are many types of truck collisions which may have harmed you or your loved one. Head-on collisions, rollovers, and rear-end collisions are just a few of the accident types that often change lives of victims forever. Often, it’s not clear-cut who’s to blame for a crash, so you need an experienced trucking lawyer to evaluate and analyze whether you have a winnable case.
Why Trucking Accidents Differ from Typical Car Wrecks
Many people do not know, including many lawyers, that the laws regulating commercial vehicles are very different and more stringent than those governing typical automobiles. While regulations differ depending on the size and type of commercial motor vehicle (CMV), these laws (known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations) apply to all CMV’s operated by a “motor carrier,” not just big rigs. These additional regulations include safety requirements above and beyond the knowledge or training of a typical licensed driver. When these regulations are not followed, they may give rise to liability and possibly punitive liability for the trucker and his or her employer.
These regulations include requirements relating to efforts by an employer to check driver history, past motor vehicle records, criminal conduct, road testing, safety training, commercial licensing, drug testing, commercial vehicle maintenance and inspection, driver logbooks, and other supporting documentation to verify drivers do not become fatigued to name a few.
Handling these types of accident claims requires skill and expertise relating to these special regulations. Because this area of injury law is unique, we investigate each case thoroughly and then typically hire some the best trucking and safety consultants in the country to testify as expert witnesses, and who will eventually explain to defense counsel and a jury what these regulations mean, why they exist and must be followed, and how they relate to causing an accident and client’s injury.
