Indiana Business Vehicle Injury Lawyer

Injured by a Business Truck or Vehicle?

Everyone knows that traffic accidents between vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians are among the most dangerous of all mishaps. A traffic accident of any kind can leave you with serious injuries and, in the worst cases, catastrophic injuries that may affect you for life. Getting the compensation you need and deserve that is fair and just after any negligence-based traffic accident is of primary importance. This is true of all traffic accidents, including those where you are hit by a business vehicle or truck. These types of vehicles can come in all shapes and sizes, from a business passenger car to a delivery pickup or courier van to an airport shuttle and more.

If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident with any type of business vehicle or truck, you likely are wondering what your legal rights may be. Who is responsible for your losses and damages and how can you obtain the justice you need and deserve? To answer your questions and determine if you have grounds for a personal injury claim or lawsuit, we highly recommend that you talk to an Indiana business transportation vehicle injury attorney at Shaw Law. We have decades of legal experience in handling all aspects of these types of personal injury cases. We start by collecting all the evidence to thoroughly build your case so that we can negotiate or litigate for maximum compensation.

Business Transportation Vehicles

A business vehicle is any type of car, van, bus, pickup, or other truck that is owned and run by a business for its use. These vehicles are usually driven by employees or agents of the business. They are commonly used to transport goods, services, or passengers or to carry around equipment. A business or company will generally carry a commercial insurance policy to cover these vehicles instead of a private policy. The vehicles may be subject to various roadway laws or have legal requirements to which they must adhere. Because of this, when you are involved in an accident with this type of vehicle, it will become a different matter than a traffic accident between private citizens.

In most of these cases, you will be involved in an accident where an employee for the company was driving the vehicle. These crashes have the same causes as other traffic accidents, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Disobeying traffic laws, such as improper lane changes, running stop signs and red lights, tailgating, and more
  • Reckless driving
  • Poorly maintained vehicles
  • A driver who has not been properly trained
  • An employee-driver distracted by issues relating to the job
  • Inattention

When involved in such an accident, the company or business is responsible for its employee’s behavior while they are on the job. If the employee causes or contributes to the accident while working when the crash happened, then the business may be held accountable for your losses and damages.

Why You Need Shaw Law

In view of the complicated laws, insurance policies, and legal rules that apply to company and commercial vehicles, the claims process can be much more complex in these cases. Additionally, you may be up against the extensive resources that commercial insurance carriers have onboard to protect their bottom line. These resources consist of adjusters and legal staff whose job it is to deny or reduce the company’s damages after a traffic accident. Because of this, it is more important than ever to hire an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to counteract insurance company tactics to protect your interests.
