Success in commercial vehicle cases requires an attorney who is capable of unraveling complex questions. Who owns the vehicle? What if the owner is a shell corporation? Do any specific regulations apply in your case? As one of the top lawyers in Tarrant County, Texas, (listed as a TOP Attorney since 2001 in Fort Worth Magazine, as chosen by his peers) Kent McAfee can find the right answers to those questions and present a strong case for you.
Whether the accident was caused by a distracted driver who was focused on the next delivery or a person in a hurry who caused a rear-end or intersection accident, we will ensure that the appropriate party is held accountable.
It may be obvious that the commercial driver who struck you could be held liable for your injuries, but the driver may not bear sole or ultimate responsibility. Employers themselves are often liable for injuries caused by their drivers. We will investigate your case thoroughly to determine where the responsibility truly lies.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a van collision or other accident with a commercial driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our attorney online, or call 817-332-7676 for a free consultation to discuss your case.
