It can be a confusing and overwhelming experience when you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, even more so if the other vehicle is a commercial vehicle.
We often get new clients who are not sure how to proceed against the other driver because it was someone on duty at work. Oftentimes, commercial vehicles involve delivery drivers who work for companies such as FedEx or UPS, or increasingly, for Amazon and other delivery services. It goes without saying that the number of commercial vehicles on the road delivery goods and services to customers has skyrocketed in recent years.
An experienced attorney is needed to guide you through the process of resolving a claim arising from a commercial accident. It can end up being much more complicated than a typical motor vehicle accident, especially if there are issues about whether the other driver was actually an employee at the time of the accident, and whether they were in the scope of their employment.
