An accident with a commercial vehicle can be disastrous. Commercial vehicles are not only 18-wheelers but many different types of trucks. Like with 18-wheelers, if you are involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, the lawsuit you file will be with the driver’s employer and not the actual driver. Big construction companies are notorious for diminishing guilt and trying to wiggle out of hefty lawsuits. Leave it to our attorneys to hold these corporations accountable for the actions of their employees and any negligence on their part.
Equipment failure and a driver’s negligence are the two main causes for an accident. There is always construction going on in the state of Maryland. Lawmakers know this which is why rules and guidelines were put into place to hold these drivers to a higher standard. This is true for all types of commercial vehicles, in experience is not a valid reason for your car being totaled or worse. Our lawyers will do a thorough review of the scene as well as talk to any witnesses, police, and medical staff in order to give you the strongest representation. Especially if the equipment fails, companies will try to cover up this information and cast you as the guilty party. They do this not only to avoid your lawsuit but any fines for malfunctioning equipment. Our counsel is not limited to construction vehicles but also the vehicles listed below:
- Passenger Bus
- Agriculture Truck
- Box Truck
- Cargo Truck
- Flatbed Truck
- Cement Truck
- Motor Home
- Delivery Truck
- Garbage Truck
- Tow Truck
The list continues longer but those are the more common cases that we see in Maryland. Another factor that causes accidents is the weight of the truck. Often, companies overload their trucks to catch up on deadlines, maximize prophet, or to meet growing demands. These are harmless ideas, but when people get hurt it only emphasizes the necessity to follow procedure. You can’t rely on the word of the company’s personal investigators for obvious reasons, and if the scene is a mess a police officer’s first concern is safety. With our firm on your side, you can bet that we will get to the bottom of the truth and expose any deception by the guilty party.
