Understanding what type of commercial vehicle caused your injury

When people think about truck accidents, most of us envision crashes between a tractor-trailer and a smaller passenger vehicle. However, other types of commercial trucks are just as hazardous as semitrucks are. All commercial trucks are large and heavy when compared with cars and pickups. This means victims of truck accidents usually suffer more serious injuries in a crash.

Examples of large commercial vehicles other than tractor-trailers include the following. This information is important to injured victims because it can help determine liability.

  • Dump trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • City buses
  • National bus fleets (Greyhound, etc.)
  • Box or delivery trucks (UPS, FedEx, etc.)

Federal regulations govern the weight, size, operation and maintenance of all commercial vehicles. If truck drivers fail to comply with regulations for the kind of truck they operate, these drivers may be liable for truck accident injuries. On the other hand, if the company the driver works for fails to comply with industry regulations, the company may be the liable party.

Fortunately, you do not need to be an expert on the many different types of commercial trucks that share Pennsylvania roads. With the guidance of an injury attorney, you have a great chance of winning a settlement or a lawsuit without having to learn more about the trucking industry.

We urge all victims of truck accidents to reach out for help when attempting to uncover or prove injury liability. Personal injury lawyers, especially those experienced in motor vehicle accidents, are already familiar with federal trucking regulations. For victims, this means less work, less stress and less fear about their futures.
