Helping Those Injured By Commercial Vehicles
Commercial vehicles — those owned by businesses — are often involved in accidents that cause catastrophic injuries to pedestrians or other motorists. The sheer number of commercial vehicles that travel along the I-77, I-81, US-52, US-58 and other nearby highways means that these accidents happen in Southwest Virginia with alarming frequency. Any personal injury case involving a commercial vehicle is exceedingly complex, due to the presence of liability issues that are not often found in personal vehicle accidents.
At McGrady & McGrady, PLLC, we understand all of the complicated procedures and regulations that govern commercial vehicle accidents. We seek to hold all responsible parties — typically the driver and his or her employer — responsible for their actions. This allows us to recover compensation for our injured clients and show companies that negligent and reckless conduct on the road will not be tolerated.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents Come In All Shapes And Sizes
Commercial vehicles are not limited to tractor-trailers. They come in many different sizes and models, including:
- Delivery vans
If you have been involved in an accident with these or any other company-owned or operated vehicle, you should contact us immediately so that we can begin to build a strong case for you.
Wrecks involving commercial trucks and other vehicles are often caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Exceeding posted speed limits
- Distracted driving, such as talking on a cellphone or texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Incorrectly loaded vehicles, such as a truck that is overloaded
- Improper vehicle maintenance
Our Carroll County commercial vehicle accident lawyers know how to conduct the piercing investigations necessary to show that these and all other negligent driver actions were the cause of your accident.
