Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Unqualified Drivers are a Main Cause of Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Smaller vehicles, like moving vans or cargo vans, are often driven by people who have never driven such large vehicles before. We often discover that they were unqualified and overwhelmed behind the wheel and that they failed to follow basic traffic rules — like braking in time, signaling before turning or keeping a proper lookout — while on Texas roads.
An inexperienced driver doesn’t realize the tremendous blind spots that these vehicles have, or just how much time is needed to effectively brake. They are unable to operate the vehicles in a way that is safe.
When people come to us after they have been involved in accidents with cargo vans or delivery trucks, we investigate the negligent drivers’ backgrounds.
This negligence often causes serious personal injury in commercial vehicle accidents, including:
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries and head injuries
- Whiplash and neck injuries
- Broken bones/fractures
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Soft tissue and muscle injuries
- Wrongful death
