Joel Feldman Liability for Distracted Driving Accidents caused By Commercial Vehicles

Commercial vehicle accidents, those cause by tractor trailers, dump trucks and other rented vehicles can result in incredible devastation.

I have firmly believed that lawsuits do have a positive result and do make those responsible change their behaviors. There seems to be a trend in that direction as commercial vehicle owners, including those that own fleets of vehicles, are now taking steps to prevent their drivers from using cell phones while the vehicle is in motion.
