Determining Fault & Filing a Claim
The basis of all personal injury claims is negligence and those for commercial vehicle accidents are no different. To achieve compensation, you must determine who is at fault and prove their negligence in your claim. Fault can often be established by pinpointing the cause of the accident.
Some of the most common causes of commercial vehicle accidents are:
- Human Error: Drivers who operate their vehicle while intoxicated, tired, or distracted can cause serious accidents. Lack of training can also account for human error.
- Environmental Issues: If a road is poorly maintained or designed, the government may share in the liability for the accident.
- Mechanical Defects: Companies are required to keep their commercial vehicles maintained, so defective electrical systems, brakes, or even windshield wipers can all indicate negligence.
Depending on the cause of the accident, you may have to file a claim with both the driver’s insurer and the corporation’s insurer. Fortunately, you’re not alone. Our firm can help you navigate the claims process and represent you until your case has been successfully resolved.
