A commercial vehicle accident can range from a fender bender up to a fatal crash, depending on the circumstances of the crash. There isn’t any reason for business owners to hire drivers who can’t drive in a safe manner when they are in company vehicles. When you are injured in a crash caused by a commercial vehicle driver, you might decide that you are going to take action against the company.
One thing that you need to realize is that you will likely have more than one option to turn to for compensation. The three that come to mind immediately are the commercial business’ insurance company, the company and the driver. There could be other options possible, so it is imperative that we take the time to evaluate the specific circumstances that might impact whom you hold liable in the case.
You have to make sure that you aren’t being taken by the defendants in the case. You might be in a rush to settle because you need to get your hands on the money so you can pay some bills. Just remember that patience is likely going to be necessary because you need to ensure that you are getting a settlement that will address all of the financial damages that you incurred because of the crash.
We can help you evaluate your case based on all the circumstances that are present. We can work with you to attempt to negotiate a settlement and we will prepare your case for trial just in case we have to move to this route.
