Accident and Injury

Commercial Vehicle Accidents: A Hybrid Between Car And Truck Accidents

Certain motor vehicle accident claims fall into a gray area between car accidents and truck accidents. Professional drivers covered by commercial liability insurance get into their share of highway accidents; when smaller commercial vehicles are involved, the injuries and property damage will resemble a car accident, but the litigation strategy and tactics will often resemble a truck accident case because of the high insurance coverage limits involved.

Handling All Types Of Accidents Involving Commercial Vehicles

Our lawyers represent clients from New Orleans and Metairie, and from elsewhere in Louisiana, and those fromout of state who were injured on Louisiana highways in such accidents as the following:

  • Delivery van accidents
  • Lunch wagon or taqueria collisions
  • Crashes involving taxicabs, courtesy vans, hotel or airport shuttles, limousines, or other tourist vehicles
  • Bus accidents, including city buses, charter buses, school buses, intercity buses, or church buses
  • Retail service vehicle accidents involving liquor trucks, pizza delivery vehicles, or home repair vans
  • Landscaping trucks
  • Construction vehicles

In a commercial vehicle accident, the facts establishing trucking company liability will usually be similar to those discovered in the investigation of a car accident case. In serious injury or fatal accident cases, however, thorough documentation and supporting testimony for your damages claim is likely to be more important, due to the higher insurance coverage limits characteristic of commercial liability policies.
