If you, a loved one, or anyone you know has been seriously hurt or killed in a vehicle wreck involving a delivery van, a charter bus, or a contractor’s pickup truck, contact the Cuffie Law Firm in Georgia. We have helped accident victims and their families for more than 25 years, and we can help you, too.
Lawsuits involving commercial vehicles can be very different from injury accident or wrongful death cases involving private cars. Because of the differences between business insurance and consumer insurance, along with the entanglement of complex ownership and employment relationships, an experienced attorney’s analysis of your case can make a significant difference to the outcome of your claim.
We handle cases involving such vehicles as:
- Dump trucks, heavy-duty pickups, or other construction or excavation vehicles
- School buses, charter buses, church buses, or city buses
- Delivery vans and trucks
- Hospitality vans or shuttle vehicles
- Trucks, vans, or cars driven by public employees while on duty
- Fatal pedestrian, bike, or scooter accidents
The timeframes for presenting a claim against the state, a county, or a local government are often shorter than they are in personal injury cases against a private individual or business, so it’s important to obtain legal advice as soon as possible after the accident to make sure you’re not giving up any of your rights to compensation.
It’s also helpful to begin the investigation of your accident as quickly as possible so that witnesses can be found and evidence can be preserved. Because professional drivers are often held to a higher standard of safety than private persons are, we also investigate the training, hiring, and safety record of the driver involved in your accident.
As with all of our other personal injury cases, our goal in commercial vehicle collision cases is to get the greatest recovery for you that we can under the facts of your case and the circumstances of your injury. With 25 years of experience, we know how to look for the hidden details and develop the facts to make the most out of your claim.
