Virginia Beach Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer

We Represent Victims Injured by Trucks & Commercial Vehicles on the Roads of Virginia

Collisions with a large truck, bus, van, or other commercial vehicle can be extremely dangerous and often deadly due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicles in comparison to that of a regular passenger vehicle.  If you’ve been involved in a car accident with a commercial vehicle while on vacation, there are a few unique things to consider.
  1. Virginia law states that you need to have an attorney licensed to practice in the state of Virginia in order to file a claim. This means that no matter where you live, if you are injured in Virginia you need a Virginia-based lawyer.
  2. Commercial drivers have additional responsibilities for the safety of themselves and those with whom they share the road. There are many possibilities for fault in a commercial vehicle collision, so it’s important to discuss your case with an experienced attorney.
  3. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a commercial vehicle accident that was not your fault, you may have the right to demand compensation. This can include payments for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

Additional Regulations For Truck Drivers and Trucking Companies

To operate legally, commercial truck drivers and trucking companies must register with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). These two entities impose regulations on truck drivers and trucking companies. These regulations include proper licensing, limits on driving hours, and regular maintenance. If a driver or company is found in violation of these rules, it could have a major impact on your case. An experienced and knowledgeable truck accident attorney can analyze your case and determine how to prove fault in your commercial vehicle accident.
