Accidents with Commercial Vehicles

Being involved in an accident with a large commercial vehicle can be a real disaster, especially when it results in economic damage, injury or death. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, it is vital that you carry out these activities to be able to fight for legal indemnity.

Large companies usually have insurance for this type of situation. They also emplioy research personnel who visit accident scenes immediately. These researchers work for their client, not you.

Many factors can result in an accident with a commercial vehicle, including:

  1. Driver's errors and/or lack of rest, drowsiness, medication use.
  2. Mechanical problems with the vehicle and equipment.
  3. Climatic factors.
  4. Conditions of streets, roads or highways.

Therefore, if possible, carry out these activities, collect evidence, and remain calm.
