When you have unwittingly collided with a commercial vehicle on the road, be prepared for three common lawsuits from all sides of the court. It is good to know what you can do, whether you are the driver of a commercial vehicle, the driver of a private vehicle in the accident or a passenger. Defining Commercial Vehicles Commercial vehicles are those that are used for commercial and business purposes.
