A motor vehicle accident involving a truck or other commercial vehicle is often handled differently than a standard car crash.  Trucks and other commercial vehicles often cause significantly greater injuries to automobile drivers and passengers due to the size of the vehicle. There are many times that a trucking company or other commercial vehicle carrier may be additionally negligent by hiring and using tired, overworked or non-licensed drivers.  If the company was negligent in hiring or knew of their drivers being impaired, the recovery for the injured party may include punitive damages in addition to standard claims of past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages.
