Commercial Vehicle Accidents in Clearwater, FL
Experienced, Compassionate Representation
When commercial vehicles are involved in an accident, the damage can be
extremely severe, sometimes resulting in catastrophic injuries or worse.
Commercial vehicles, including buses, construction vehicles, and moving
vans, are usually much larger than standard passenger vehicles, which
means they can be especially destructive in a crash. These vehicles are
longer, heavier, and often carry hefty cargo, which may spill onto the
road or could add to the weight of the vehicle, making the impact even
more severe. Because of these factors, commercial vehicle accidents should
always be treated seriously.

Holding Drivers & Companies Liable for Their Negligence
Following a commercial car accident, it is extremely important to identify
the liable party. If your accident was caused by driver intoxication,
failure to abide by traffic laws, a vehicle malfunction, fallen cargo,
or other similar issues, you have a right to take action against the party
responsible for your injuries. If the driver made a mistake or was in
any way careless, they may be held personally responsible for your injuries.
Or, in some cases, the company may be liable for the actions of the driver.
Additionally, the company who owns the vehicle or employs the driver might
be found responsible if they failed to follow certain safety rules regarding
the driver or vehicle itself. Drivers should be fully trained, properly
licensed, and allowed frequent breaks in order to prevent drowsy driving.
If these rules were not observed, the company may be liable for the actions
of the driver. Likewise, if the company failed to load or maintain the
vehicle properly, and that negligence caused the crash, the company may
be deemed responsible for the resulting damage.
