There are many trucks and commercial vehicles on the roads in Spring Valley and the surrounding areas. Truckers undoubtedly provide an important service, but they can create dangerous situations if they are negligent behind the wheel. These vehicles are massive and can cause serious damage in the event of a collision.
If you suffered injuries in a crash involving a tractor-trailer, consult an experienced lawyer at LVNV Legal about your legal options for recovering compensation. A Spring Valley truck accident lawyer can work tirelessly on your case to seek out the payments that you deserve.
Any type of vehicular collision has the potential to cause severe harm. However, accidents involving commercial trucks tend to see some of the most devastating injuries to other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Commercial vehicles are significantly bigger than commuter cars and are weighted down by cargo, making it difficult to stop, start, and turn.
Another factor that contributes to the high rate of accidents involving trucks is the demanding nature of the trucking industry. To meet deadlines, truckers often drive for over ten hours a day. This became such a problem that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration enacted rules concerning maximum drive times for any given day or week. Violations of these rules can lead to fatigued driving and dangerous collisions.
After a serious tractor-trailer wreck, a victim may require various medical procedures and incur significant expenses. Survivors are often faced with multiple surgeries and ongoing rehabilitation to treat their injuries.
The purpose of an insurance claim or a lawsuit after a truck accident is to collect the compensation necessary to set things right. A skilled attorney in the area can help you recover payments to cover all past and future medical care for the truck wreck injuries.
However, a comprehensive case goes beyond just the physical impact of a collision. Our seasoned truck crash attorneys at LVNV Legal can seek payments for:
Although it can be difficult to place a dollar value on these effects of a tractor-trailer accident, our dedicated lawyers are ready to help.
A knowledgeable attorney will also work to ensure that a case meets the relevant statute of limitations. This is a time limit that applies to all personal injury cases. According to Nevada Revised Statute § 11.190, an injured victim may only have two years from the date of their accident to bring a claim. As such, it is crucial for Spring Valley residents to reach out to our trucking accident attorneys as soon as possible.
It is important to understand your legal rights after being involved in an accident with a commercial truck. These drivers have an obligation to protect you by acting reasonably and safely on the road. Additionally, commercial truckers must follow special rules concerning drive times and weight limits for cargo. Violations of these laws may make truck operators liable for any ensuing accidents.
If you were hurt by a negligent trucker, a Spring Valley truck accident lawyer can help you to seek out the payments that you deserve. At LVNV Legal, we will work tirelessly to prove the truck driver’s negligence and pursue compensation for the full value of your case.

I consulted with Mr. Segal on a business matter, and found him to be very detail-oriented and analytical. His legal knowledge and thorough analysis enable him to strategically position clients for success. I also found that he conducts himself in a professional manner and truly cares about his clients' interests.
Shoham's keen analytical mind, strong business sense and straightforward approach to litigation makes him a strong force to be reckoned with if you ever have to face him in the courtroom, and an even stronger ally to have when working on a case with complex legal issues. I endorse this lawyer.
Mr. Segal has handled several real estate deals for our company. His service is always professional, efficient and prompt. His response time is very quick and helpful. looking forward for working with him in the future. Best experience!
Shoham was kind, patient and knowledgeable in explaining how to qualify my mother for Medicaid long term care. I did not even know my mother was eligible. There are so many aspects to paying for long term care that so many people — including myself — do not know about. One would be lucky to have this firm in your corner navigating you through it.
Knowledgeable, professional and patient. Mr. Segal was always available to us and was able to take care of all of my family’s legal needs. I am so grateful that he was there to guide us through everything. Highly recommended!
Shoham has been handling my foreclosure case and I am beyond satisfied with the results so far. Beyond being very knowledgeable and professional, Shoham is very accessible and his demeanor is of an attorney who thoroughly calculates and strategizes his every move. I highly recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer for any sort of litigation.
My parents don't know much about the best way (or any way) to plan their estate. My sister and I have been trying to get them to figure things out for a decade but they never do because it made them too nervous. I got recommended to Mr Segal by a friend and now the ball has started rolling! He made my parents feel comfortable...
