Devastating Impact Of Commercial Vehicle Accidents

It is our goal to gain a clear understanding of your accident and how your injuries will impact your life — and the lives of your entire family.

A Variety Of Vehicles

Commercial vehicle accidents can involve a number of different types of vehicles, including:

  • 18-wheelers
  • Delivery trucks
  • Taxis
  • Buses
  • Limousines
  • Trash collectors
  • Construction vehicles
  • Box vans

These drivers are held to a higher standard and require a special license — commercial driver's license (CDL) — to operate these larger, more powerful vehicles. Unfortunately, they are not perfect, and accidents happen. Whether from negligence, distracted driving, poor maintenance or simply misjudging the traffic around them, if one of these vehicles are involved in a collision, the other driver can suffer severe injuries.
