Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Everyone knows that semi-trucks are commercial motor vehicles; however, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations apply to lots of other vehicles that are not big rigs. 

Put simply, a commercial motor vehicle is a car, van, truck, or bus owned and operated by a company and used by employees for work related purposes. Knowing the difference between the laws that apply to ordinary car wrecks versus the laws that apply to commercial motor vehicles is crucial to ensuring you case is handled properly to maximize your recover.

  • Delivery Trucks / Vans
  • Fleet Vehicles
  • UPS / FedEx Trucks
