Peoria Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney

Assisting Seriously Injured Accident Victims & Their Families

Commercial vehicles differ in several ways from private vehicles. For one thing, they are often on the roads nearly continuously. Drivers move them around as part of their day-to-day jobs. They are often heavier than private passenger cars. They sometimes carry heavy cargo. They may be oddly shaped compared to other traffic. They may stop frequently. Finally, they may present complex insurance coverage to deal with in case of an accident.

The Peoria commercial vehicle accident attorney at Joel E. Brown, Attorney at Law has more than 25 years of experience in complicated, high-stakes personal injury cases, such as commercial vehicle accident cases. He is able to evaluate cases and bring claims on behalf of people injured as occupants of other vehicles, as well as motorcyclists, bicyclists, or pedestrians.

  • Ambulances, medical transport vehicles, and taxis

  • Tractors and other farming-related vehicles
