After An Accident Involving A Vehicle Owned By A Commercial Entity
An important thing to remember about commercial vehicles is that they are their drivers’ workplaces. While many of us go to offices, schools or banks to perform our jobs, a commercial vehicle driver carries out a day’s work behind the wheel. Driving while fatigued or distracted is not uncommon for commercial vehicle operators. This is why it is so important to investigate a commercial vehicle driver’s state of mind and health at the time of a crash.
The Ruiz & Associates, PLLC carries out detailed investigations when representing people injured in motor vehicle accidents, including wrecks involving:
- 18-wheelers (also called big rigs or tractor-trailers) used for over-the-road transport of cargo
- In-town delivery trucks
- Construction vehicles
- Street sweepers
- Utility trucks
- Shuttle buses
We bring in experts as needed to understand the cause of an accident because this piece of information can make a great difference to our injured clients’ cases. If you suffered a serious injury in a crash involving a commercial vehicle, let us evaluate the facts about the accident and explain how we can help.
Other Considerations In Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Aside from the size of commercial vehicles and the sometimes-fatigued drivers behind the wheel, insurance matters can be particularly complex in these cases. The good news is, typically, multiple insurers may provide resources to help our injured clients. Those with serious injuries may need a lifetime of care, special equipment and never-ending rehabilitation to move forward in life. Financial needs are critical after a catastrophic injury.
However, interactions among those multiple insurers sometimes cause extensive delays in an accident case. Different insurers naturally try to minimize their liability, so the legal processes tend to drag on. When our attorneys represent clients in these cases, we stay focused on doing all we can to deliver the resolutions our injured clients truly need.
At the same time, we work hard to maximize the compensation our clients will ultimately receive. We fight for our clients’ right to compensation for pain and suffering, not just reimbursement for hospital bills.
