Winning Cases For Your Neighbors Since 1985
Commercial vehicle accident litigation is more complicated than other types of motor vehicle accident cases. You should ensure that the law firm you enlist has the resources and tenacity to take on well-prepared opposing counsel in addressing the following special issues:
- Commercial vehicles may be covered by multiple overlapping insurance policies, including separate coverage for the truck, the driver, the trailer and the cargo.
- Federal and state regulations involving drivers’ schedules, maintenance of brakes, lights and other mechanical systems, and limits on vehicle weight are important factors in assessing liability.
- A trucking company’s hiring and training procedures must receive comprehensive review. For example, did the driver have a record of drunk driving or other traffic violations?
- It is crucial to determine the party or parties actually responsible for a truck or trailer accident, particularly if the damage caused in the accident exceeds insurance policy limits.
