Hurt in a Commercial Vehicle Accident?

An attorney will fight for the justice you deserve

We see commercial vehicles on our roads every day, and we don't think of them much - until we're involved in a truck accident. Semi trucks can cause devastating injuries because of their sheer size, but even smaller commercial vehicles such as delivery trucks are still a significant danger to motorists. The commercial vehicle accident lawyers at Boughter Sinak, LLC can help you fight back.

When you're hit by a commercial vehicle, you're not just up against a negligent driver. Your case is against the company that owns the truck, and they will fight hard to protect their interests. That's why it's important to get a fighter on your side. Contact us right away to start building your case for compensation.

We understand complex liability issues

Commercial vehicle accidents can happen for all of the same reasons as crashes involving private motorists. However, there are a few factors that can make commercial vehicles particularly dangerous:

  • Inexperienced drivers: Large trucks and vans are more difficult to maneuver than passenger cars. Depending on the type of vehicle, the driver may or may not be required to possess a commercial driver's license (CDL), but it is always the employer's responsibility to make sure each driver is trained to operate his or her vehicle safely.
  • Distracted driving: Operators of commercial vehicles spend long hours on the road and often have multiple responsibilities behind the wheel. They may cause an accident while adjusting the radio, talking to a dispatcher or even eating or drinking behind the wheel.
  • Improper maintenance: Every vehicle needs to be maintained, and the stakes are even higher for commercial vehicles. But too many companies cut corners when it comes to maintenance, leading to dangers such as unreliable brakes or faulty tires.

Proving negligence on the part of a commercial driver or company can be difficult. These businesses and their insurance companies will put their best attorneys, investigators and adjusters on the case. We can do the same. Our attorneys can thoroughly investigate your crash, search for evidence that proves your claim and fight for every dollar you deserve in negotiations and at trial.

Cargo Truck Accidents

Cargo trucks, including box trucks and larger cargo vehicles, are a common sight throughout the Fort Wayne area. Most cargo trucks have limited visibility from inside the cab and require an experienced driver to avoid a collision. But too many businesses cut corners when it comes to training and supervising those drivers. Our law firm stands up for people hurt by truck drivers.

Mail Truck Accidents

Mail carriers play an important role in our community, but like all vehicle operators, they also have a responsibility to drive safely. In some cases, that responsibility is not met, and people get hurt. Accidents involving mail trucks can be difficult to litigate, and you need a proven fighter on your side. That's why you need to contact us.

Fuel Truck Accidents

There are few things more potentially dangerous than a fuel truck. These vehicles are not only as difficult to maneuver as other commercial trucks, but also filled with explosive cargo. If you've been injured in a fuel truck crash, you might have a claim against the owner of the fuel itself in addition to the owner of the truck. Our attorneys know how to navigate complex cases.
