Types of Trucks & Commercial Vehicles
What Type of Vehicle Caused the Accident?
At Aitken Aitken Cohn in Santa Ana, we have focused our practice on catastrophic injury claims. With more than three decades of experience on our side, we know how intricate truck accident claims can be. We know that every little detail can play a role in how we handle the case, including the type of truck or commercial vehicle that caused the accident.
Tractor Trailer Accidents
There are two different factors that need to be considered in semi truck accidents, the tractor and the trailer. In many cases, both are owned by the same company. However, that is not always the case. Sometimes, the tractor is owned by an independent driver, while the trailer is owned by a larger company.
Ownership of the vehicle can play into the action we take. Depending on what form of negligence caused the accident, we may take action against the owner of the tractor, the owner of the trailer, or file two separate actions, one against each.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Our experience is not limited to 18-wheeler truck accidents. Our law firm also has the strength to handle accidents caused by smaller commercial vehicles, including:
- Delivery trucks
- Delivery vans
- Box trucks
- Pickup trucks
Essentially, any vehicle that caused an accident while making a delivery or while conducting work-related travel, is a commercial vehicle. Our lawyers will take action against the driver, the employer or both. We will take the steps necessary to get compensation for the truck accident victim.
