Chicago Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyer

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.

Chicago Commercial Vehicle Accident Liability Attorneys

Our law firm can assist clients who were injured in any type of commercial vehicle accident, including:

  • Bus accidents
  • Parcel express or delivery van accidents
  • Accidents involving taxi cabs, airport shuttles, hotel hospitality vans or limousines
  • Tow truck accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Landscaping vehicle accidents
  • Rental truck accidents
  • Collisions with utility maintenance vehicles
  • Accidents involving vehicles owned by government entities, schools and non-profit groups

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.

To arrange a free consultation about your case, please contact The Horwitz Law Group today. We represent clients on a contingency basis. You will pay no attorney’s fees unless we obtain financial compensation in your personal injury claim.
