Liability issues involving car accidents can, for the most part, be sorted out without too much difficulty. Where liability issues get more complicated, however, are in car accidents involving company vehicles. Learn how to protect your rights in this situation.
Most company vehicles are considered commercial vehicles. These vehicles are owned or operated by a company for business purposes. Examples include company trucks or vans, buses, taxis, limousines, and more. Since these vehicles are owned or operated by an organization, there are many more parties involved in their maintenance and operation than traditional passenger vehicles.
In a traditional car accident, for instance, the only party you would likely be dealing with is the other driver’s car insurance company. In a commercial vehicle accident, on the other hand, there may be multiple parties that can be held liable for damages. Such parties include:
- The vehicle’s driver
- The vehicle’s operating company
- The vehicle’s cargo loaders
If you have been involved in a commercial vehicle accident, it’s in your best interest to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can sort through complex issues of liability while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
