Understanding Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Understanding Commercial Vehicle Accidents

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported over 415,000 crashes involving commercial vehicles in 2015. Those accidents resulted in 3,852 fatalities across the United States. Commercial vehicle accidents tend to be more complicated than passenger vehicle accidents. Our Houston commercial vehicle attorneys explain why commercial vehicle accidents are more dangerous and complex than traditional collisions.

Common Causes of Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Commercial vehicle collisions are some of the most dangerous types of accidents that occur on our roads. Research shows that 35 percent of all fatal crashes involving commercial vehicles occurred during a 12-hour period from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. Below we have put together the most common causes of commercial vehicle accidents:

  • Texting and driving
  • Speeding through a construction zone
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Failure to maintain vehicle

Why Are Commercial Vehicle Accidents Complex?

When you are injured in a commercial vehicle accident and seek compensation, you won’t be dealing with a driver’s insurance--you will be dealing with the company’s insurance. Large companies like FedEx and UPS are continually looking for ways to limit their liabilities, and they will likely do that when you file a claim against them. Commercial vehicle accident cases can quickly turn into a long and complicated process. For such reasons, you need a strong legal team on your side.
