Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Humboldt River Ranch
The community of Humboldt River Ranch within Nevada’s Pershing County may hold just over 100 residents, but the area is home to many remarkable and diverse landscapes. From frosty snow-capped mountains spotted with evergreens to lush green valleys to barren desert land, residents and visitors can experience almost every type of ecological wonder within the community’s 12.9 square miles of land.
Humboldt River Ranch is closest to the larger community of Lovelock to the east and is 50 or so miles southwest of Winnemucca. Being located on the Interstate 80, residents have fast access to the highway, but often find themselves battling for safe and comfortable space on the roads when driving alongside big rigs and 18-wheelers.
Serving Rural Residents of Humboldt River Ranch
Two-thirds of all accidents in Nevada may occur in or around urban centers, but nearly one-third of all motor vehicle crash deaths happen in rural communities such as Humboldt River Ranch.
Several of these accidents involve passenger vehicles, but far too many involve large trucks that can do a lot more damage than a coup or sedan. In fact, it was found that 81% of fatal crashes involving multiple vehicles also involved large trucks. This is compared to fatal crashes only involving passenger vehicles, which was 58%.
- 3,921 people were killed in motor vehicle accents involving large trucks (2012)
- 104,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents involving large trucks (2012)
- From 2011 to 2012, there was a 4% increase in fatalities involving large trucks

Staying Safe on Nevada Roads
You may not be able to control how other people choose to operate their vehicle, but you are in control of your own actions.
- Wear a Seat Belt: 90% of Americans reportedly regularly buckle up, which reduces one’s risk of suffering a fatal injury by 45% and moderate to critical injury by 50%
- Stay Alert: Driving when drowsy, distracted, or impaired (by alcohol, drugs, or prescription medicine) can be all the different between you arriving home safely and not arriving at all. Focus on the road, be alert, and always be on the look out for potential hazards
- Know Your Road Rights: Knowing the rights that you have on the road can help protect you and the public from dangerous drivers
