Commercial vehicles can include box trucks, tractor-trailers, school or metro buses, cargo vans, and heavy construction and farming equipment. If you are involved in an accident with one of these types of vehicles, the cause of the incident could be due to driver negligence, distracted or reckless driving, or poorly maintained equipment.
Anyone driving a commercial vehicle has an even greater responsibility for complying with the rules of the road because they are operating oversized and awkward machinery. Buses and trucks often have a wider turn radius that can make it harder to navigate on surface streets. Overhead clearances are also a challenge if a commercial vehicle attempts to take a route through a small town or suburb with low clearance overpasses.
