Driver error was a factor in about one-third of fatal tractor-trailer accidents. Both the driver and the corporation should be held responsible for these common causes of commercial vehicle crashes:
Tractor-trailer crashes tend to result in catastrophic injuries and damages that often exceed the million-dollar auto insurance policy that typically cover commercial drivers. Therefore, proving corporate negligence may be crucial for you to recover the full value of your claim.

If necessary to secure your compensation, our attorney may file a lien against corporate property.
