The law surrounding a commercial vehicle’s responsibility for damage caused in an accident has grown increasingly complex in recent years. As rideshare apps such as Uber and Lyft grew in popularity, so did the commercial vehicle accidents rate. Drivers alleged that the companies themselves were responsible for the damage, while the companies said that their drivers were independent contractors.

If You Are Injured by a Commercial Vehicle
If you are injured in an accident involving a commercial vehicle, it can be difficult to know what to do. Focusing on your health by receiving proper medical care is the most important. Take care of yourself. Get the treatment you need.
You may also feel pressured to talk with an insurance representative right away. However, keep in mind that the company is looking for ways to minimize or avoid financial responsibility for the accident. They may try to use your word against you or make a quick settlement offer before you know the true extent of the harm.
