Commercial Vehicle Accidents in Round Rock, TX
You may have suffered injuries due to a collision with a semi-truck or other similar large truck. Trucks of this nature are generally heavier than most cars, and pose more danger than other vehicles. If the driver of the other vehicle was not attentive or careful on the road while driving these potentially dangerous vehicles, they could be liable for damages.
Commercial vehicle collisions can occur as a result of driver negligence when an employee of a company operates a vehicle as a part of their job. Commercial vehicle accidents include:
- Delivery trucks
- Dump trucks
- Food trucks
- Garbage trucks
- Work vans
- Corporate cars

Commercial Vehicle Accidents Differ from Other Car Accidents
Commercial vehicle accidents are often more complex than typical car accidents because of the legal doctrine of respondeat superior. This doctrine allows victims of accidents caused by employees to hold the employers vicariously liable for their damages under specific circumstances.
You may be able to pursue a case based on vicarious liability when:
- The driver who caused your accident was working at the time of the accident
- The at-fault driver was classified as an employee with their company, as opposed to an independent contractor, a volunteer, or another category
- At the time of the accident, the at-fault driver was driving to fulfill the “course and scope” of their job
We know how to collect evidence to build a compelling case to prove vicarious liability. Reach out to us to let us evaluate your case today.
