Companies may also cut corners when hiring and maintaining their vehicles, endangering the lives of road users.
When employees and companies fail to abide by rules that govern the commercial vehicle industry, they must be held responsible for their actions. An experienced Longview commercial vehicle accident attorney can offer you sound legal counsel while aggressively fighting on your behalf for a fair settlement.

In Longview, TX, and beyond, commercial vehicles are used for business purposes. Many people associate commercial vehicles with large trucks. Technically, any vehicle used for commercial purposes is a commercial vehicle.
Here are some of the most common commercial vehicles on the road today.
Getting into an accident with a big rig, an Uber, or a bus can be a devastating experience. If the commercial vehicle was a large truck or tractor, the consequences could be extremely catastrophic.
During such times, there are crucial steps that you should follow to strengthen your Longview commercial vehicle accident claim.
After any vehicle accident, it can be difficult to assess your condition and tell if you are seriously injured. The adrenaline rush after the crash may mask potentially severe trauma. For this reason, it’s advisable to seek medical care from paramedics at the scene.
You should also visit your physician for a comprehensive medical checkup after leaving the scene of the accident.
Large companies employ many commercial drivers. These corporations may hire accident investigators to gather evidence and take possession of any company property at the scene of the accident.
Taking photos and videos of the scene can strengthen your claim. Photograph your injuries, road signs, road conditions, nearby landmarks, and vehicle identifying marks, such as logos and license plates.
After a collision with a commercial vehicle, the last thing you should do is to handle your claim and lawsuit alone. Having an experienced lawyer by your side can make all the difference, especially when going up against a corporation.
