COMMERCIAL VEHICLE COLLISIONS
Were you or a loved one involved in a collision with a big rig truck or commercial vehicle?
Collisions with a large truck, bus, van, or other commercial vehicle can be extremely dangerous and often deadly due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicles in comparison to that of a regular passenger vehicle.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident while on vacation, there are a few unique things to consider.
1. Virginia law states that you need to have an attorney licensed to practice in the state of Virginia in order to file a claim. This means that no matter where you live, if you are injured in Virginia you need a Virginia-based lawyer.
2. Commercial drivers have additional responsibilities for the safety of themselves and those with whom they share the road. There are many possibilities for fault in a commercial vehicle collision, so it’s important to discuss your case with an experienced attorney.
3. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a commercial vehicle accident that was not your fault, you may have the right to demand compensation. This can include payments for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
