Fault in a Commercial Vehicle Crash
The determination of fault in a commercial vehicle collision is very important. In simple terms, whomever causes the crash is ‘at fault’. This is important because anyone involved in a crash who is not at fault can seek compensation for injuries, property damage, and lost wages from any party, including the driver’s employer, found at fault.
Though the circumstances of every crash are unique, certain driving behaviors increase the chances of causing a collision.
Speeding or driving too fast for conditions (like a rain-soaked Southern California freeway) can lead to accidents. Watch your speed, especially if the weather conditions are less than ideal.
Texting while driving, trying to find directions, or even just holding a cellphone will make one more likely to be found at fault for a crash. It’s best to leave your phone and electronic devices alone while driving.
Ignoring traffic signals, crossing solid stripes to enter the carpool lane, the infamous California stop, improper U-turns, and any other driving habit that violates the rules of the road can be the cause of a crash.
Over 30 percent of fatal car crashes involves a drunk driver. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a surefire way cause an accident and a potential felony conviction. Never drink and drive.
