Truck and Bus Accident Lawyers in Utah

Salt Lake City injury attorneys representing victims of negligence

Buses and large trucks such as semis, 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers have the potential to cause serious damage and injuries when they are involved in accidents. In fact, injuries in these types of accidents tend to be more serious than injuries in other vehicular accidents. If you were injured in a collision with a truck or a bus, a bus and truck accident attorney in Salt Lake City from Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen can help you seek coverage for your damages.

Since 1982, our lawyers have been advocating for injured clients and providing first-rate legal representation in their personal injury claims.

  • A fair and appropriate amount of financial compensation that will cover your full injury costs

About trucking accidents

Trucks are involved in an alarmingly high proportion of fatal accidents. Although only about three percent of all registered vehicles are trucks, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that trucks are involved in 12 percent of traffic fatalities. Additionally, 23 percent of nonfatal trucking accidents lead to injuries serious enough that the victim must miss work time.

All of the truck accidents that result in personal injuries involve some type of negligence. Many of the leading causes of truck accidents are the same as for car accidents and motorcycle accidents. If you were injured in any of the following types of collisions involving large trucks, consult an accident lawyer to discuss filing an injury claim:

  • Jackknifing
  • Rollover
  • Loss of control of a truck
  • Unsecured/loose cargo or debris flying off a truck
  • Underride accident
  • Head-on collision

About bus accidents

If you were injured in a bus accident, you can obtain compensation by filing a claim with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA). However, because the UTA is a government entity, you have a more limited time in which to file that claim, and there are certain costs they do not cover (such as pain and suffering). It is vitally important to consult with a knowledgeable Salt Lake City bus accident attorney as soon as possible following an injury involving a bus, to review the complete range of options.
