According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, there are roughly 150 million automobiles in operation in the United States. About 15 million of these motor vehicles are classified as commercial motor vehicles. Semi-trucks, dump trucks, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, big rigs, delivery vans, construction cranes, bulldozers, cargo trucks, cement mixers, limousines, and various categories of pickup trucks can be classified as commercial vehicles.
Large commercial motor vehicles can weigh over 120,000 pounds – 20 times heavier than the average passenger car. Due to their size and the time it takes to bring a moving truck to a stop, commercial vehicle accidents frequently involve multiple vehicles and are more likely to lead to fatalities than a standard car and passenger vehicle accident.
Any accident involving a motor vehicle can be classified as an auto accident. However, accidents that are commonly associated with commercial vehicles, include:

There are a few key differences between car and motor vehicle accidents that make claims involving the latter more complex than the former. Motor vehicles encompass any and all vehicles on the road, from Onewheel device accidents to two-wheel bicycle and motorcycle accidents, and even accident claims involving pedestrians who were in no vehicle at all but became the victim of an automobile driver’s negligence. Commercial vehicles also fall under the umbrella of a “motor vehicle”, and while they are less likely to be involved in an accident than cars, truck accidents have a higher fatality rate than passenger vehicle accidents. Also, any motor vehicle accident involving a commercial vehicle like a tractor-trailer will usually be very heavily insured and must meet more stringent insurance and operating laws.
Motor vehicle accident claims often involve multiple parties, including the vehicle operator, possibly an employer or service team responsible for the motor vehicle’s maintenance, and insurance companies. With so many parties involved, it can be more difficult to determine who was at fault – and in what proportion – when building a case. For this reason, it is important to retain a qualified lawyer to protect your rights and interests after you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident of any kind.
Our team will gather pictures, eyewitness statements, the official police report on your accident, video footage, the driving histories of those involved in the accident, and gather other relevant details such as reports from accident reconstruction experts to determine how – and why – your accident occurred. Based on our findings, we will be able to state with confidence who was at fault for the accident and then pursue your case from there.
