Dallas Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents are scary – car accidents with commercial vehicles can be even scarier. A commercial vehicle is one that is owned by a company and driven by a company driver, though usually commercial vehicles are much larger than normal motor vehicles.
Commercial vehicles are also subject to a different set of rules than other motor vehicles. Both federal and state laws govern commercial vehicles. If a commercial vehicle company or commercial vehicle driver fail to comply with these regulations, both the driver and company may be legally liable.
Common Causes of Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Some of the common causes of commercial vehicle accidents include:
- Overworked or fatigued commercial vehicle drivers
- Driver inattention
- Commercial vehicle drivers under the influence
- Mechanical failure of the commercial vehicle
When a commercial vehicle accident is caused because the driver or commercial vehicle company fell below the standards set by federal and state regulations, you may have a legal case against them. However, it is very difficult to prove that the driver or company are liable without the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney who understands commercial vehicle accident law. These drivers and companies, as well as their insurance companies, fight these cases hard.
Because of the severity of the injuries and damage involved with commercial vehicle accidents, and because of the way defendant companies and drivers combat these cases, having someone who knows what they are doing on your side is crucial. The legal team at Van Wey Law is here to help.
