Recovering compensation after a semi truck accident

Some motorists in the Reno area may not fully appreciate the danger that large semi trucks pose to those driving near them. These vehicles can cause catastrophic injury to occupants of smaller vehicles. The slightest of wrong moves by a commercial truck can lead to you or a loved one ending up in a hospital bed.

At Bradley Drendel & Jeannie, we know how serious truck accident injuries can be. For this reason, it is imperative that those who have been injured by a negligent truck driver understand their legal rights. If the injured party can prove that a trucker's negligence caused the accident, they can recover monetary damages for their losses. Medical bills, loss of wages and other contributing costs are among the categories of damages that can be claimed.

Many accidents, of course, are the fault of more than one party. Even if you are partially responsible for an accident, however, Nevada's comparative negligence law will still allow you to recover if you were not more at fault than the other driver. Since injuries can result in thousands of dollars in past, present and future expenses, proving the truck driver is at fault is critical.

Negligence must be proven in order to recover compensation after a semi truck accident injury. Fault in a semi truck accident case can be based on the negligence of the truck driver, the trucking company, or those responsible for maintenance and repair of the truck. A full investigation can turn up evidence to support the injured party's claim.
