Corporate Vehicle Accident
You’ve been in an accident with a commercial or company vehicle, one which is owned and operated by a company or commercial business and is used for the operation of its business.
Corporate vehicles come in a variety of shapes and sizes including semi-trucks, vans, buses, cars, and tractor-trailers. You’ve been injured and now you don’t know what to do.

What should I do after an accident with a semi-truck or tractor-trailer?
First, look after your health: seek medical attention, then help others at the accident if you’re able.
Second, keep calm. Never accept blame at the scene. In fact, don’t provide details until after you’ve calmed down and are ready to talk to an investigator with an attorney by your side.
Third, be proactive. Contact your insurance provider. If possible, take pictures of the accident, pictures of injuries to you and loved ones, your vehicle, and pictures of the environment.
Fourth, be on your guard. As early as the day after your accident, your insurance company and the corporation’s insurance might call you.
