Hi, may name is Mike Burman. Let’s talk about motor vehicle collisions caused by careless drivers of business vehicles.
A typical business vehicle is a service truck or service van with the logo of the business on the vehicle. The driver of a business vehicle is not required to carry a commercial driver’s license.
The driver of a semi-truck and trailer, or 18 wheeler, is required by law to carry a valid commercial driver’s license (CCL), but the driver of a business vehicle is usually not required to carry a CDL. Many times, these drivers are poorly trained and inexperienced. Many times, we see these drivers overworked and insufficiently rested for work.
When you are injured by a driver who works for a business, the business owner has a legal responsibility to you for that employee’s carelessness. Most businesses have insurance to pay for the carelessness caused to you by an employee.
