Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP

Resolving Your Commercial Vehicle Accident Injury Claims

We consider any accident involving a professionally operated vehicle, or a vehicle driven in the scope or course of employment, to be a commercial vehicle accident case. These can range from a collision with a 40-ton truck to a crash with a pizza delivery car. What these accidents have in common is the availability of a commercial liability insurance policy that will almost always cover the whole range of your current and future damages claims, provided we prove they arose out of this commercial vehicle accident.

To learn how you can benefit from the counsel of a personal injury lawyer experienced with the investigation and proof of commercial vehicle accident claims, contact Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP in Albany, New York, for a free consultation about your legal options.

Commercial liability insurance raises the stakes in your accident claim

In a typical car accident case, smaller claims can often be settled promptly. Meanwhile, the most serious injury claims will usually exceed the limits of the other driver's insurance and your own underinsured motorist benefits, so that proof of your damages beyond a certain level can be pointless.

Not so in commercial vehicle cases. Because there will normally be sufficient insurance to cover all but the most severe disability claims, your lawyer will need to prove your damages with complete documentation and expert support, with every detail scrutinized for weaknesses and gaps.

At Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, our experience with the proof and presentation of severe injury claims (including traumatic brain or spinal cord injury) can help ensure that your damages demand will include every proper component of loss and future needs, together with the documentation necessary to establish your case both in negotiations and in court.
