Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Walker Lake
The unincorporated community of Walker Lake is located in Mineral County, Nevada, along Route 95.
This tiny community is situated along the body of water from which it derives its name, and measures less than 1.5 square miles. Walker Lake’s population is one of the smallest in the region, and is only home to approximately 275 people. The town is situated southeast of both Reno and Carson City, and is known for the Walker Lake State Recreation Area, a state park in the Great Basin region.
Walker Lake may be home to few people, but the community is situated along a transit corridor, which offers access to several markets. As a result, those operating vehicles on area roadways may be at risk for any type of vehicle accident, including truck accidents.
Truck Accidents in Walker Lake
Despite its size, Walker Lake’s location along the busy Route 95 exposes it to increased commercial traffic, including large trucks. Many passenger vehicles or pedestrians are unsettled when sharing the roadway with large trucks, as the sheer size of these vehicles causes thousands of unfortunate injuries and fatalities each year. Truck accidents involve trucks that weigh more than 10,000 pounds, such as 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers.
Some common situations for truck accidents are:
- Head-on collisions
- Rollover accidents
- Improperly contained loads
- Backing into another vehicle
Unfortunately, large trucks are responsible for more than 10% of traffic fatalities in the United States, with the vast majority of injuries and fatalities occurring to the individuals in the passenger vehicle involved in the collision. As a result, it is imperative for truck drivers to maintain operational integrity while traveling on the roadways, including:
- Staying well-rested
- Avoiding drugs and/or alcohol while operating a vehicle
