Car accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin filed suit on behalf of a man who was struck by a driver who ran a red light and caused our client severe injuries. Commercial vehicles are typically larger and stronger than passenger vehicles, which means they result in worse injuries. Driving at full speed into another vehicle that’s either stationary or driving another direction would result in catastrophic injuries for the occupants of the smaller vehicle—and it often does, in our experience.
With as much power and destructive potential as commercial vehicles have, professional drivers have to be held to a higher standard than regular motorists. Companies must ensure that their drivers are properly trained with good driving records. When unsafe drivers are put behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle, the inevitable result is pain, loss, and injury for other motorists, including our client.
We look forward to righting this wrong and helping our client get his life back. This case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
