Understanding the Complexities of Trucking Accidents
In accidents involving passenger vehicles, it is typically much easier to identify who is at fault for the incident. In most cases, one of the drivers is responsible for causing the accident and therefore is liable for the injuries caused. However, trucking accidents have a larger, more complex structure of liability.
If you were in an accident with a commercial truck, you need an attorney who can investigate all aspects of the incident to identify who is at fault for your injuries. Potentially liable parties include:
- The truck driver
- The company that owns the vehicle
- The individual or organization leasing the truck
- The individual or group that packed the truck
- The manufacturer of the vehicle
Identifying who is directly or indirectly responsible for the accident is a crucial part of ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Mr. Kendall has been working in personal injury law since 1985. He has an advanced understanding of motor vehicle accidents and the laws governing commercial trucks in Nevada, allowing him to fully investigate who is liable for your accident.
Truck accidents can result in catastrophic, life-altering injuries. The medical expenses may even outweigh the settlement from your insurance company.
Our team at the Law Offices of William R. Kendall can help you collect compensation for:

Why Hire an Attorney?
With the complex liability laws surrounding trucking accidents, hiring a skilled accident attorney is an important step toward recovery. Often, the trucking company’s insurance provider will offer a quick, low-ball settlement to avoid a larger pay-out. Before you sign anything, it is a good idea to have a lawyer look over the settlement and ensure you are receiving the level of compensation you deserve.
