For this reason, Nevadans may notice a continually steady increase in the number of massive 18-wheelers that are carrying cargo as heavy as hundreds of thousands of pounds as they strive to keep up with the consumer demand for products.

The Importance of Establishing Liability after a Truck Accident

Liability is a legal term that describes the process of naming the negligent defendants whose careless actions you feel contributed to the events leading up to the collision. Depending on the unique circumstances of your truck accident claim, we may find a number of parties liable for your injuries.

For example, if the negligence of a truck driver causes you brain and spinal cord injuries and a trucking company currently employs him or her, it may be possible to name both the driver and their company in a lawsuit. In other situations, the truck driver may act as an independent contractor and have no legal connections with the trucking company. This type of business relationship may complicate whom you are able to include as a defendant in your lawsuit.
