Commercial Vehicle Accidents

The streets of Las Vegas are filled with commercial vehicles that do everything from delivering goods to transporting tourists. Most of the time, these trucks, vans, buses and cars blend in with regular traffic without incident. But when a commercial driver causes an accident, it can be devastating.

There are also numerous layers of liability. Unlike someone driving a personal car for individual transportation, a commercial driver is driving in a professional context. He or she is usually employed by a company responsible for hiring, training and monitoring that worker to ensure safe practices behind the wheel. After an injurious or fatal crash, both the at-fault driver and the company may be held liable.
