Every year in the United States approximately 5,000 people die after being involved in truck accidents, and more than 90,000 people suffer varying levels of physical injuries after truck crashes. There are countless factors which may play a part in causing a big rig accident, such as driver fatigue, hazardous weather conditions, speeding or other reckless maneuvers, driver error, excessive amounts of cargo, and mechanical failure. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident in California or Nevada, please contact a truck accident attorney at Bob M. Cohen & Associates to discuss your case.

The injuries that truck accident victims suffer can be very severe, and may include:

State and Federal laws have imposed various guidelines which truck driver must obey to keep themselves and other people on the road safe. If truckers disobey these guidelines they are placing innocent drivers at risk for serious injuries.

You have the right to hold the negligent driver, and possibly his or her employer responsible for the injuries that they caused.
