At the law firm of Lawyer, Lawyer, Dutton & Drake, LLP, we have a proven track record helping injured people and their families. Our attorneys are experienced litigators who represent only injured people. From our offices in West Des Moines, we serve clients throughout Iowa.

What Type of Commercial Vehicle Injured You?

The term "commercial vehicle" applies broadly to many types of vehicles. It includes many other vehicles besides commercial trucks, such as:

• Delivery vehicles

• Taxis

• Buses and motor coaches

• 15-passenger vans.

• Delivery vehicles

Even if a vehicle is not owned by a business, it could be considered a commercial vehicle if it is used for businesses purposes.

This is why, when we talk with you about your case, we will make sure to identify all of the parties that may be responsible for your accident. For example, your injury may have been caused by driver negligence. But when that driver was employed by someone else, you may be able to obtain compensation from the company that hired the commercial driver - even if the driver owned his or her own rig.

Insurance Issues: Leveraging Our Experience To Find A Solution

Insurance issues are usually very important in resolving commercial vehicle accident cases. Under Iowa tort law, it is only the first step to establish liability and show damages. Once those showings are made, it is crucial to be able to actually collect the compensation that the courts have awarded.

This typically means dealing with the responsible party's insurance company. Our lawyers leverage decades of experience handling injury cases to resolve insurance issues in ways that keep the interests of injured parties at the forefront.
