What Causes a Commercial Vehicle Accident?

The causes of a commercial vehicle accident can vary. Our ability to prove that your accident was caused by the negligence of another driver or by a shortcoming on the part of the company that owns the truck will help us ensure that your settlement is as high as it can possibly be.

Some of the most common causes of a commercial vehicle accident in College Station or Bryan, TX include issues like the following:

  • Distracted Driving: It’s increasingly common for a driver to become distracted by something inside their vehicle, like a cell phone or GPS navigation. Something outside the vehicle can also cause a driver to become distracted, as well.
  • Fatigue: Commercial vehicle drivers are sometimes made to drive for very long periods of time. If a driver does not take adequate time to rest while driving, fatigue can slow their reaction time and potentially lead to an accident.
  • Improper Cargo Loading: Depending on the size and purpose of the commercial vehicle, it may be carrying a heavy load of cargo. When cargo loads are not properly secured, shifting weight can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.
  • Speeding: If a driver is going faster than the posted speed limit—or if they’re simply driving too fast to be safe in the current road conditions—they can be considered to have been speeding and may be at fault for your accident.

Why Call a Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney? in College Station or Bryan, TX

While it might seem simple enough to negotiate on your own behalf, the truth is that insurance companies often employ a variety of tactics in an effort to either reduce your payout or deny it altogether. This is why you need an experienced commercial vehicle accident attorney like Brian C. Gutierrez to advocate on your behalf and shoulder the legal burden that can follow this type of accident.

Expert Witnesses

When negotiating for your settlement—or when going to trial, should your case come to that—Brian is able to utilize his vast connections and call upon expert witnesses who can help explain your injuries or damages and lend a strong degree of credibility to your case.
