Fender-benders and minor collisions happen every day on the roads throughout Bellevue, and most of the parties who are involved in these accidents are able to go about their days after working through the details of their crashes. However, as our readers know, more serious accidents also occur that can cause victims to suffer serious bodily injuries and even deaths. One type of accident that can be particularly devastating to victims is a commercial vehicle collision.
Commercial vehicles are those trucks, vans, buses and big rigs that are used to carry passengers and cargo to different destinations. Unlike private vehicles that are used by individual owners and operators for their personal use, commercial vehicles are part of the chain of commerce that gets things to where they need to be. Commercial vehicles are often large and when they are weighted down with parcels or passengers they can be massive obstacles for drivers to encounter on the roads.
Commercial vehicles pose a host of risks to others on the roads, many of which are attributable to their incredible sizes. Large commercial vehicles can take longer to stop than regular cars, can offer their drivers limited visibility around them and can be more difficult to maneuver than private automobiles. All of these factors, in addition to the many not mentioned in this post, can contribute to deadly commercial vehicle accidents.
