Throughout Oklahoma, commercial vehicles, such as taxis and buses, are used to transport people both short and long distances. Every passenger on a commercial vehicle is vulnerable to the behaviors and abilities of the vehicle's driver. Although commercial vehicle operators often drive more defensively than operators of passenger vehicles, such as cars, some still drive recklessly and potentially endanger the lives of their passengers. Although commercial vehicle accidents are far less frequent than car accidents, they can be more catastrophic and can injure or kill many people because of their size and weight.
Our law firm has seen too many cases of commercial vehicle accidents from truck accidents to bus crashes. These types of accidents can mean more liabilities than car accidents, where a single party is likely to be held responsible for any injuries or deaths. In commercial vehicle accidents, not only the driver who caused the crash - a truck driver or a bus driver, for example - but also the operator of the bus or the trucking company and the mechanics who installed parts on those vehicles or performed maintenance or repairs can all be held liable. For this reason, our team of attorneys will thoroughly investigate a crash to determine if insurance companies overlooked any contributing factors. Unfortunately, these companies sometimes fail to acknowledge factors that could increase compensation paid to victims and their families.
