Trucks and commercial vehicles have an added set of rules and regulations that they and the companies that own them are required to follow. The rules and regulations under the Highway Traffic Act are to ensure the roads are safe and to avoid injury accidents.
Commercial motor vehicles have CVOR’s (Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration) that limits speed, weights of vehicles, safety checks, and hours that a driver may operate the vehicle.
Many times driver fatigue is the cause of the accident, the driver may have been operating the vehicle too long and became a “sleepy driver” and either fell asleep at the wheel or wasn’t paying attention.
In commercial vehicle or truck accidents, the liability for the accident and any personal injury not only falls on the driver but the company as well.
The company has a legal responsibility to ensure that it’s drivers are properly trained, check the vehicles for safety issues, and are operated properly on the highways.
When our lawyers investigate your personal injury, one of the questions we will answer on your behalf is, who is responsible for the accident?
Many times there are numerous responsible parties including;
- The Driver of the Vehicle
- The Trucking Company
- The manufacture of the vehicle or equipment on the truck
- Government Agencies
In filing your injury claim we look at all aspects of the accident to ensure that all parties involved or responsible for your injury are litigated against so that you receive the maximum compensation.

It should be straight forward, you file a claim and the insurance company pays you, but…
Just because you have been injured the insurance company maybe unwilling to cooperate with you.
Insurance companies although being federally regulated are private business and have a vested interest to pay out the least amount in disability benefits as possible.
Your accident injury claim may appear straight forward, but the insurance company may seek to deny or reduce your benefits and any settlement.
When your involved in an accident the insurance company will want to contact you to,
- take statements,
- ask you to sign documents and
- even may offer you settlements shortly after your hurt
- You may still be sitting in a hospital bed when the insurance company contacts you.
