Commercial vehicles are defined as vehicles that are used for business or commercial purposes. Vehicles that transport passengers or goods, or used to deliver services are considered commercial vehicles. These types of vehicles are often much bigger and heavier than other cars on the road, posing a danger to cars and pedestrians if operated in an unsafe manner.

Commercial vehicle accident claims are often complex because they can involve multiple parties and these parties are often backed by a team of intimidating defense lawyers who are working hard to minimize your compensation. But our injury attorneys are ready for the challenge. We've recovered millions of dollars for our injured clients, including six- and seven-figure verdicts and settlements. We know what it takes to win.

Determining Liability

Drivers of commercial vehicles are required to follow rules set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR).

Some of the rules listed in the FMCSR include:

  • Routine maintenance of commercial vehicles
  • Mandatory alcohol and drug testing for drivers
  • A maximum weight for cargo to prevent overloaded trucks
  • A maximum number of hours that drivers are allowed on duty

All of these are meant to ensure that these vehicles are safe for everyone on the roads. When these rules are breached and an accident occurs, liability can either fall on the driver of the vehicle, the trucking company, or the maintenance crew that contributed to the accident. We can look into your case to help you determine whether we should pursue compensation from these parties.
