Big rig vehicles, construction equipment, tour buses, Las Vegas has them all. They travel on the highways, and sometimes they try to cut through surface streets even when they don’t need to for their destination just to try to avoid the freeway traffic that, as we all know, can be seriously debilitating if you’ve got somewhere to be. Unfortunately, we see a lot of commercial Vehicle accidents in Las Vegas. Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law have top commercial vehicle accident attorneys. We know how this sometimes complicated area of insurance works, and get work through the legal intricacies to get you top compensation for your injury.
Nevada's Joint & Several Liability applied to Truck Drivers means they are liable for damages in cases where comparative fault is not raised as an affirmative defense.
When a Diesel crashes into an ordinary vehicle, the results are often life altering injuries and or death. Victims who do survive may require occupational therapy and may experience significant memory loss, become nonambulatory, require in home nurse care, and miss the oppoc xrtunity to truly enjoy life. Commercial vehicles such as eighteen-wheelers, diesels, construction trucks and essentially all big rigs are required to maintain a minimum one million dollar policy of Insurance.
Many law firms will exhaust an eighteen-wheelers one million dollar policy without a comprehensive understanding of how these large policies of insurance for eighteen-wheeler or commercial vehicles unfold. A million dollars may initially sound like a lot of money, but considering the costs of two months at University Medical Center, Emergency Surgeries and in-house nursing care for the remainder of an injured party's life is not enough. A million dollars might get you through two years of medical care thereby leaving your family with outstanding medical bills.
Most eighteen-wheelers will offer the one million dollar policy in hopes that an attorney or law firm will accept the same as exhausting all coverage's. However, this may be FALSE. Many commercial carriers will have an excess policy exceeding one million dollars. To make temptation worse, many firms are unskilled in forcing the eighteen-wheeler companies procedurally to reveal the excess policy and in determining when they have a duty to.
