Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Does Commercial Liability Coverage Apply to Your Claim?

One of the first inquiries an experienced personal injury lawyer makes has to do with the insurance coverage available to meet an accident victim’s claims. In private auto accident cases, we often find that the other driver’s insurance together with your own underinsured motorist coverage provides a lot less coverage than you’ll need if you sustained serious injuries.

This is typically not a problem in commercial vehicle accidents. If your collision involved a semi truck, a construction vehicle, a commercial landscaper or even a delivery car from a local restaurant, your accident losses will almost certainly be covered up to $1 million or more by commercial liability insurance.

The availability of insurance to cover very high losses puts the spotlight on your lawyer’s ability to prove complex damages claims against tough defense attorneys with a lot to protect.

While the general principles of proving liability and damages in commercial vehicle injury litigation are much the same as they are in any other car accident, the fact that the defendant will actually need to pay the full amount of your losses in most cases means that your damages evidence will receive much closer scrutiny and more sophisticated challenges than it will in a case where low policy limits will apply.
