Not every commercial vehicle is operated by an experienced driver with a CDL. In fact, more often than not, you’ll find that the driver of a U-Haul barreling down the highway at 70 mph has never been behind the wheel of a large truck before. He or she doesn’t realize the tremendous blind spots that these vehicles have, or just how much time is needed to effectively brake.
At the Jim Ross Law Group, P.C., in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, we represent people who have been injured in accidents involving moving vans, delivery vans, cargo vans and shuttles, among other motor vehicles.
As experienced attorneys and community leaders, we understand that smaller vehicles, like moving vans or cargo vans, are often driven by people who have never driven such large vehicles before. They are unable to operate the vehicles in a way that is safe.
When people come to us after they have been involved in accidents with cargo vans or delivery trucks, we investigate the negligent drivers’ backgrounds. We often discover that they were unqualified and overwhelmed behind the wheel and that they failed to follow basic traffic rules — like braking in time, signaling before turning or keeping a proper lookout — while on Texas roads.
This negligence often causes serious personal injury in commercial vehicle accidents, including:
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries and head injuries
- Whiplash and neck injuries
- Broken bones/fractures
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Soft tissue and muscle injuries
- Wrongful death
If you have been injured by the driver of a commercial truck, talk with our lawyers about your situation. Consultations are free and confidential. You have only a limited amount of time to take action. If you fail to take action within this time, you may never be able to collect the compensation to which you are entitled.
