What is a Commercial Vehicle?
By most definitions, a commercial vehicle is any vehicle used for the express services of a business.
Examples of commonly used commercial vehicles:
- Courier trucks
- Box trucks
- Cargo vans
- Flatbed trucks
- Tow truck
- Garbage truck
Vehicles used for construction purposes, like a cement mixer or crane, may also be named a commercial vehicle by their insurance policies. Even an ice cream truck that drives around your neighborhood to sell sweets to children is technically a commercial vehicle. Basically, if a business or company owns a vehicle and its driver is conducting company business at the time of a crash, then it stands to say that a commercial vehicle accident has happened.

Liability in a Commercial Vehicle Accident
As can be seen, a common trend among commercial vehicles is their increased weight or carrying capacity. The direct result of a larger, heavier vehicle is more damage and injuries caused in a wreck. In turn, the cost of medical treatment will be steeper. You should not have to pay for those bills if your commercial vehicle accident was not your fault. Figuring out who is liable can be difficult, though, due to the number of parties that interact with or control a commercial vehicle.
Parties that can be partially liable for a commercial vehicle accident include:
- Driver who physically caused a crash out of negligence or recklessness.
- Parent company that scheduled the driver excess hours, causing exhaustion.
- Load crew that inappropriately added cargo to the vehicle.
- Maintenance crew that did not fix or detect vehicle defects, like faulty brakes.
