The Chicago car accident attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group represent clients who were injured in accidents with commercial vehicles.
Commercial vehicles range from a salesman’s sedan to a semi tractor-trailer to a florists’ delivery van. When a commercial vehicle of any kind is involved in an accident, there are legal and insurance issues that can differ depending on the type of vehicle and nature of the business that owns it.

Holding Commercial Carriers to a Higher Standard of Care
Some commercial vehicles, like buses and taxis, are considered common carriers. Their drivers must have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), and the vehicles must meet minimum safety and operating standards. These vehicles and their owners and operators owe a higher standard of care to passengers than do privately owned vehicles. Other commercial vehicles must also meet certain government regulations even though they do not transport paying passengers.
Not every car accident lawyer understands how to maximize compensation for clients in commercial vehicle claims. We do. Because our lawyers understand the regulations and standards that apply to different types of commercial vehicles, we are able to hold the owners and operators accountable if they fail to uphold their duties and people are harmed.
