Las Vegas Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Commercial vehicles are everywhere in Nevada: there are fleets of shipping trucks on the state’s highways and interstates, and taxis and buses are always ferrying residents and visitors to varying destinations, such as The Strip. Unfortunately, the prevalence of commercial traffic means that thousands of commercial vehicle accidents occur every year.
Those injured in these accidents often have a personal injury claim against both the driver of the commercial vehicle and the company that owns the vehicle. Because of this, cases can quickly become very complex and require the services of a seasoned personal injury lawyer.

In addition to obtaining favorable results in truck cases, Ralph Schwartz, has successfully recovered compensation for many clients injured in taxicab accidents, bus accidents and other motor vehicle cases. In Las Vegas, taxi accidents are especially prevalent along The Strip. If you, as a pedestrian or motorist, were injured by a taxi or shuttle, it is important to have an attorney with the proper experience evaluate your claim to ensure that you recover the full compensation you are entitled to.
We will complete a thorough investigation. If we find that the taxi company was negligent in hiring a driver with an accident record or inadequate training, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim in addition to your health and auto coverage.
