Who is at Fault in a Commercial Vehicle Accident?
Collins Law can help you establish who is at fault for your commercial vehicle accident. Common at-fault parties include:
A negligent motorist may have been distracted or intoxicated. They may have been driving recklessly or committed a traffic violation that led to the accident.
A Transportation Company
A trucking company, bus company, or other commercial vehicle business may have failed to adequately train the driver or maintain the vehicles. As a result, their negligence is what may have ultimately caused your injuries.
Auto part defects can lead to commercial vehicle accidents. Manufacturers sometimes release cars or trucks on the highway before properly assessing an auto part. A motor vehicle defect could have caused your injuries.
