Injured In An Accident with A Commercial Vehicle? Protect Your Rights!
Due to the nature and size of commercial vehicles and the fact that commercial drivers are often rushing to their next job or delivery, many accidents occur every day involving personal automobiles and commercial trucks or vans. This is especially true during holiday seasons.
In addition, the size and weight of most commercial vehicles result in a disproportionate number of injuries and more severe injuries when accidents do occur.
While your first priority is to seek needed medical evaluation and treatment, you should contact a personal injury attorney with experience in commercial vehicle accidents as soon as possible to ensure that your rights and future are protected.

Understanding Commercial Vehicle Accidents — Your Attorney Can Help!
Any accident involving a business truck or vehicle (for example, being rear-ended by a truck driver) is considered a commercial accident. While it is always wise to get advice from a personal injury lawyer if you’ve been injured in an accident, this is especially true when a commercial vehicle is involved.
In some cases, commercial drivers or the business they own or drive for carries insurance with large companies that will hire an adjustment firm. These firms specialize in keeping potential compensation to a minimum. In these instances, I will attempt to reach an amicable settlement with the insurance company. If an acceptable settlement cannot be reached, I will file a lawsuit on your behalf and will then work with the insurance company’s attorneys.
In other cases, businesses or trucking companies are self-insured, so any compensation comes directly from their bottom line. This is a different type of negotiation process that requires an attorney with experience in commercial accident cases, which is experience that I possess. Self-insured businesses will often drag their feet or offer insufficient settlements until faced with litigation.
Don’t take chances with your physical and financial future.
