When Commercial Vehicle Drivers are Negligent, Consequences Can be Catastrophic

When we think of commercial vehicles, we often think of tractor-trailers. But there are many other dangerous vehicles on the road, including utility trucks, construction vehicles, delivery vans and busses. Because of their mere size, an accident involving them packs a punch.

Often times, commercial drivers are making deliveries or offering services. As such, they have deadlines to meet. When any automobile operator is in a rush—accidents can happen…and when they do, the injured are entitled to compensation.

Proving Negligence Can Be Difficult

Proving negligence on the part of the commercial driver can be difficult, especially considering many of them have big companies backing them up with lawyers being dispatched immediately to the scene of an accident. Before everyone involved in the accident even makes their way to the hospital, their attorneys are on location collecting evidence.

Once the injured parties arrive at the hospital, it is quite possible representatives of the company will try to contact them or their family members. They’ll ask for a recorded statement, for signed papers, and for a detailed account of what happened. In this circumstance, don’t ever agree to give a statement, recorded or otherwise, or to signing any papers.  They will be persistent; in hopes you slip up and say something inaccurate. Don’t get caught in the trap because it could jeopardize your claim.
