Harm caused by a negligent motorist in a commercial accident

Regardless of where you live or how much time you spend on the road, you are aware of the fact that commercial vehicles are everywhere.

From trucks to buses, these vehicles have a special purpose while on the road.

As the driver of a passenger vehicle or a pedestrian, you realize one thing to be true: an accident with a commercial vehicle can be extremely dangerous. In some cases, this causes serious injury or even death.

Some of the most common types of commercial vehicles include: delivery truck, bus, tractor trailer, company van, police car, public workers vehicle, taxi, airport shuttle, limousine, garbage truck, and dirt hauler.

If you or a loved one is harmed or killed in an accident with a commercial vehicle, it's important to understand exactly what happened. Did the other party act in a negligent manner, such as by reckless driving or distracted driving?

In addition to holding the driver responsible, you may be able to do the same with a business or municipality. For example, public works vehicles are owned by local municipalities. For this reason, they are responsible for ensuring that their drivers are acting in a responsible manner at all times.

At our law firm, we help people who have been injured in a commercial vehicle accident. We know the ins and outs of the law, including the challenges the victim is sure to face along the way.

In the end, it's our goal to hold the negligent party responsible while also making sure the victim receives the compensation he or she deserves.
