Some of the most serious motor vehicle accidents are trucking accidents, whether involving big rig tractor-trailers, delivery trucks, or other commercial vehicles. A person who negligently operates a commercial vehicle should be required to pay for that carelessness, whether it damages property, results in injury or causes the death of a loved one.
