Economic growth could mean more trucking accidents

The national economy is continuing to grow, and with this growth comes the need to transport products and merchandise. Businesses in Nevada and across the United States rely on trucks to import and export goods on a daily basis. As the economy grows, so does the number of semi-trucks on roadways across the nation. Due to the size of tractor-trailers, any accident involving these rigs is more likely to be damaging and result in serious injuries. According to recent statistics, fatal trucking accidents occur almost 11 times a day.

Woman awarded $300,000 after successful premises liability claim

It's summer in Nevada, and as populations rise, there are more and more people using facilities for fun and recreation. Property and business owners have a duty to provide a safe environment for all visitors. Unfortunately, visitors are sometimes injured due to the negligence of irresponsible property owners. A woman in another state was recently awarded $300,000 from a premises liability lawsuit she filed after she allegedly suffered injury from tripping on a rug.

Why Nevada Is Home To A High Number Of Truck Accidents

In an average year in the United States, nearly 4,000 people die as a result of a trucking accident. Tens of thousands more are injured in such incidents. Owing to the unusual number of visitors that come to the state each year, and the supplies brought in to cater to them, Nevada - and Las Vegas in particular - is home to a disproportionately high number of these trucking accidents.

How will a trucker's role evolve through automation?

The next time you’re on I-15 heading to Los Angeles from Las Vegas, or on US 93 heading to Phoenix, you may pass a number of semi-trucks and not even think about whether someone is behind the wheel, because that’s how it’s always been. After all, truck drivers are an integral facet of the American highway system.  

Auto accident involving semi leads to 2 deaths

The driver of a semi-truck has a duty to operate the large vehicle carefully on the road. Its large size can easily cause damage to other automobiles on the highway as well as injuries or death to motorists if not handled properly. Two individuals recently passed away after the van in which they were traveling was struck by a semi in a tragic auto accident in Nevada.
