The seriousness of a truck accident
As the driver of a passenger vehicle, you never want to think about being involved in an accident with a truck. And here is why: The average 18 wheeler weighs approximately 80,000 pounds and can reach up to 50 feet long.
If your smaller vehicle collides with one of this mass, it is possible that you could be seriously injured or even killed.
As you know, the interstates of Nevada are always packed full of trucks. While most truckers do whatever it takes to remain safe and follow the rules of the road, this is not the case with all of them. And that is why truck accidents happen from time to time.
No two truck accidents are the same. One could involve a truck that hits a passenger vehicle head on. Another could be the result of a truck that rolled over into oncoming traffic.
If you are involved in a truck accident, the first thing you should do is seek immediate medical attention. You need to know what types of injuries you suffered, how to treat them, and what this means to your future.
