Commercial Vehicle Accident

Commercial drivers who operate large vehicles must adhere to the rules of the road, safety standards and strict federal regulations. When they fall short of their obligations and violate the law, accidents happen.

The Dangerous Consequences Of Negligent Commercial Vehicle Drivers

Often under pressure to meet strict deadlines, drivers take shortcuts that often result in serious injuries to anyone sharing the road with them. Buford personal injury attorney Eric J. Tatum, the founder of our law firm, represents victims of collisions involving semi trucks, FedEx or UPS delivery vehicles, and commercial buses and vans.

Common causes of commercial vehicle accidents include:

  • Driver error or fatigue
  • Inexperience or lack of training in vehicle handling
  • Overloading, affecting the vehicle's speed, performance and steering
  • Faulty brakes, tire blowouts and improperly maintained safety equipment
