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.
Joseph O'Connor speaks at a trial attorneys’ conference about
the importance of tailoring an attorney’s presentation to the audience,
whether it is an insurance adjuster or a jury, and about using cutting
edge technology to more effectively prepare a case.
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.
