A commercial vehicle accident can be more complicated than a traditional car accident because there are more parties involved in the vehicle’s maintenance and operation.
As such, it’s important for you to know how to protect your rights after an accident involving a truck, taxi, bus, limo, or other commercial vehicle.
Collect the Right Information
The most important step following any accident is to collect all the necessary information. This is particularly vital in a commercial vehicle accident when not only the driver may be at fault, but their employer as well.
Collecting the following information can help protect your rights in a commercial vehicle accident:
The driver’s contact, insurance, and vehicle information
The name and contact information of the driver’s operating company
A copy of the responding officer’s police report
Footage from any nearby traffic or security cameras
