Truck Accidents in Reno
Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are prone to causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. Truck accidents lead to some of the most catastrophic injuries and damages. In just one recent year’s time in the entire U.S., over 110,000 people were injured as a result of truck accidents. Nevada is no stranger to these accidents, which occur in the blink of an eye. Because truck drivers spend a long period of time on our roads, they are more likely to become distracted or fall asleep at the wheel.
