Causes of Truck Accidents in Nevada
The first step in a truck accident claim when our Nevada personal injury attorneys manage the case is often looking for signs of liability. When evidence is gathered and analyzed, more often than not, the cause of the crash can be linked directly to the actions of the trucker, not the motorist. It is our objective to reduce your liability down to 0%, allowing you to collect 100% of your damages from the trucking company or its insurance company.
Trucking accidents are commonly caused by:
- Truck driver exhaustion
- Poor truck maintenance
- Overloaded truck cargo
- Trucker driving recklessly or speeding
Getting Electronic Onboard Recorder Data
Many commercial trucks are equipped with an electronic onboard recorder (EOBR), which is similar to the black box in an airplane. The EOBR usually includes information about maintenance logs and how often the truck driver takes a mandatory rest break to prevent fatigue. Some models may even include a chart of the truck’s speed at any given time, including the moment of impact. Our Nevada trucking accident attorneys have the resources and legal knowledge needed to obtain a copy of the EOBR data from the trucking company, who is not immediately obligated to share it with you.
