commercial vehicle drivers are being paid to do a job. One part of that job is to safely drive the vehicle from one location to another. There is no room for error when a commercial vehicle driver is performing one’s duty. This is especially true if the commercial vehicle driver is driving a large vehicle, such as a semi-truck.
Sadly, large commercial vehicles that slam into smaller passenger vehicles can often cause fatal accidents. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal commercial vehicle accident, you might decide that you want to take action. One possible option that you can exercise is to seek financial compensation for the loss of your loved one.
When we begin to build your case for compensation, one of the first factors that we have to determine is how we are going to present the case. This means that we must determine from whom we are going to seek compensation. When it comes to fatal commercial vehicle accidents, we have a few different options to consider. If more than one party or person can be held liable, they must all be named in the claim for compensation.
We might be able to hold the driver, the business owner, the insurance company, and other parties accountable for the accident. It is very important that we include all parties in the claim because if we don’t, there is chance that we will fail to hold the right person accountable. If you are ready to seek compensation, you must move quickly because the statute of limitations in Virginia is two years.
