Trucking accident cases can be complex as there are many trucking laws specific to commercial carriers. It is the complexity of these laws that makes the expertise of a commercial vehicle accident lawyer so crucial. Experienced semi-truck accident lawyers are extremely familiar with this legislation, as well as the layout of Nevada’s 16 counties and miles of interstate highways. Although truck drivers in Nevada must comply with both state and federal laws, accidents will occur. When they do happen, the consequences can be devastating as these big rigs are so much bigger than most of the other vehicles on the road. In an accident involving these commercial vehicles, they can cause serious injuries and even fatalities due to their weight and size.
