Most people have misconceptions about what commercial vehicles are. When people hear the term “commercial vehicle,” they typically think of large trucks. However, the reality is that commercial vehicles are any vehicle on the roadway that is used to carry out business or government purposes. If a vehicle is not a privately owned vehicle, then it is likely a commercial vehicle. In many cases, you cannot even tell the difference between a commercial vehicle and a privately owned vehicle. In Boston, some of the most common types of commercial vehicles you may encounter include:

In short, we work very hard on your behalf, seeking evidence that can be used to support your claim and determine the party or parties responsible for your accident. Ultimately, our goal is to get maximum compensation and results for you.
Each state is responsible for setting deadlines for how long car accident victims have to file lawsuits against alleged negligent parties. In Boston, the personal injury statute of limitations is three years from the date an injury occurs. If a Boston car accident victim fails to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party within this three-year window, they will lose the ability to recover any compensation for their losses.
If the commercial vehicle in the accident belongs to the state, county, or city government, you will have two years to file a formal claim and three years to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation.
