Whenever you hear the common phrase "car accident," it is understandable to immediately think of a small, compact car. Not many people will think of a truck or a large vehicle when they hear this phrase, but that doesn't mean the possibility is absent from their mind. It is just that the phrase invokes an immediate thought of a smaller vehicle.
Larger vehicles are, of course, involved in accidents all the time. Big trucks can jack-knife on the highway or run wild on the freeway, causing massive, fatal accidents. Limousines and delivery trucks can lose control and cause multi-car pileups. City metro vehicles can become entangled in a wreck, as can commercial carriers. There is a wide variety of motor vehicle accidents that cause serious financial and physical pain to the people involved.
Commercial vehicle accidents have the added possibility of the wreck occurring due to negligence or recklessness on the part of a company or commercial entity. These accidents need to be fully investigated, and the victims of such accidents need adequate and experienced legal representation to ensure that their interests are protected and their rights are upheld.
