Accidents Involving Commercial Vehicles
What should I do if I was in an accident with a commercial vehicle?
The chance of death, serious injury, and/or severe vehicle damage is much higher in a commercial vehicle accident than a regular automobile accident due to the average commercial vehicle’s large size.
It is also more complicated to figure out who is liable for the accident–Is it the driver? The owner? The vehicle manufacturer? The liability can be affected by:
- Whether the driver is employed by a larger company or an independent contractor
- Whether the driver is driving for business reasons or personal reasons
- Whether or not the vehicle itself was defective
In many cases, it will turn out that there are multiple liable parties, leading to a fairly complicated lawsuit. Therefore, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you come out on top.
