In some industries, including interstate trucking, commercial vehicles are required by law to carry liability insurance of $750,000. Commercial vehicles are often insured under business policies. The higher dollar value can give an injured victim better compensation, but it also means it may be more difficult to win the case. In commercial vehicle accidents, it is vital to choose an experienced trial lawyer with the resources and skill to stand up to the insurance company. Commercial vehicle insurers aggressively defend against personal injury claims. You need an attorney who will be as aggressive in protecting your right to compensation.Commercial Vehicles and Driver Safety
Commercial drivers are responsible for operating their vehicles safely. Before employing a person to drive a charter bus, dump truck, or other commercial vehicle, companies are expected to make sure the person is properly trained and qualified. If a company acted negligently in putting that driver on the road, it should be held liable for the damage that resulted. Our firm knows how to analyze your commercial vehicle accident case to present a compelling argument to insurance companies, the judge, and jury.Catastrophic Injuries and Wrongful Death
