Ask for a Police Report
Video Transcribed: How can you tell if the vehicle that struck you in a motor vehicle collision is a company vehicle? Hey everyone, Christopher Stevens here certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Office in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working in personal injury in Oklahoma.
Today, we’re going to be talking about how you can tell if the vehicle that struck you is potentially a commercial vehicle or a vehicle that is owned by a company. Now, some easy ways right off the bat are seen if there are any logos.
Maybe they’ll have those decals along the side of the vehicle, or maybe something along the back. Another thing you can do if you get a police report is to see who the listed owner of the vehicle is. Not just the driver.
A lot of the time, they might list John Doe as the driver but then XYZ Company as the owner of the vehicle, and that will give you an idea as to whether or not the vehicle was owned by the person who struck you, and potentially that company could be liable for your injuries as well.
