Vehicle accidents involving commercial vehicles fall into a personal injury category all their own. Whereas the basic rules-of-the-road are common to all vehicles, there are additional state and federal regulations that commercial vehicles must follow. In addition, because of their size and weight, commercial vehicles tend to cause substantially more damage than the average car or SUV.
Trucking companies have their own teams of legal professionals experienced in defending the company and will probably arrive on the scene with camera in hand before you leave via ambulance. Rest assured that when a commercial vehicle accident occurs, the company’s legal team will have been notified long before the average driver has had time to select their own counsel. When involved in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or other commercial vehicle, it is essential to have an attorney experienced in representing those injured in 18-wheeler wrecks.
