An accident involving an Ohio resident and a commercial vehicle is not like one between two passenger vehicles. Aside from the fact that commercial vehicles are often much larger and potentially more damaging that personal vehicles, commercial vehicles carry with them a variety of questions regarding who owns them, who is responsible for maintaining them and who is tasked with training their drivers.
A commercial vehicle accident case may include a wide range of possible defendants. Aside from the vehicles’ drivers, victims may sue the entities that caused the vehicles to be on the roads, the companies that owed the vehicles, the insurers who provide policies that cover the vehicles and many others. The facts of a commercial vehicle crash will often determine just how wide of a scope a victim may employ when preparing their initial pleading for damages.
After a commercial vehicle accident, a victim should seek medical attention to ensure that their physical traumas are cared for. After they have begun the process of recovery, they may want to work with personal injury lawyers who can advise them of their rights to sue and get their lives back on track.
