Are you a victim of a truck accident?

  • The first step you should take after you are injured in a truck accident is to seek medical treatment. Next, preserve any evidence such as photographs of the accident, your injuries, the accident scene, etc. Get names of any witnesses, the responding police officer and the drivers involved in the crash. Never discuss who is at fault after an accident because you may not have all the facts.

There are many factors to consider if you are injured or have lost a loved one in a traffic accident. One critical consideration is time. There are statutes of limitations in Nevada that provide a time frame in which an injured victim can seek compensation for losses such as medical treatment, lost wages, physical rehabilitation, pain and suffering, emotional distress and other damages related to an accident.

These limits can range from 180 days to a couple of years, but the circumstances in every case will depend on many factors that a personal injury lawyer can explain based on your individual case.

Indeed, the Seegmiller car accident law firm has a proven track record supported by settlements ranging from several thousand dollars to millions. Compensation for your injuries, loss of wages and pain and suffering can’t take away the trauma of the accident, but it can help you rebuild your life.
