When Commercial Vehicle Accidents Result In Serious Injuries

The streets and highways are filled not only with over-the-road trucking, but all kinds of vehicles involved in all kinds of businesses. Vans, taxis, delivery trucks and buses are involved in accidents every day.

Just as with tractor-trailers, in commercial vehicle accidents there are multiple parties involved, from the driver to the owner of the vehicle, to the manufacturer of a defective vehicle or part. If you are injured in an accident with a commercial vehicle, Daniel Pleasant Holoman LLP, is here to help.

Any company that hires drivers to operate their vehicles has a duty to be careful with whom they hire. A careless driver is not a good candidate. Professional drivers should also have appropriate training. If a truck driver doesn't know the city and is lost and late for a delivery, they probably should have had training about their delivery route.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations are detailed and strict. They exist to protect the public from accidents and injuries on the road. But there are companies that routinely put profits over the safety of other drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. Failure to maintain a fleet of vehicles properly means worn-out brakes and tires, and vehicles breaking down and becoming hazards on the road. For example, we have had clients who ran into poorly visible trucks at night with insufficient reflectors and suffered serious injuries.

Countless catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even fatal accidents and wrongful death occur and warrant significant compensation from negligent parties at fault. Take immediate action in holding the negligent party accountable for your damages or the death of a loved one.
