Trucking and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Semitractor-trailers and commercial trucks and vans driving on Nevada roads are highly regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA), governed by the Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Under provisions of the FMCSA, truck companies are required to hold their drivers with a commercial driver’s license to the highest standards for training and skill. In addition, trucks and trailers are required to be serviced and maintained regularly to ensure other drivers enjoy a reasonable amount of safety while sharing our roads and highways with these heavy vehicles.

Act Quickly To Hire Local Representation For Your Trucking Accident Claim
Truck companies are notorious for quickly dispatching an investigator to the scene of an 18-wheeler accident to begin collecting evidence. Fighting to get the evidence turned over for litigation is difficult even for the most experienced attorney. It is important to start a relationship with a local attorney who understands the court process and laws governing discovery of evidence in our state court system.
