What is a commercial vehicle?

According to a safety manual distributed by the Department of Public Safety of the State of Texas, a commercial vehicle is a self-propelled or towed vehicle, other than a farm vehicle, with a gross weight, registered weight, or gross weight rating under 48,000 pounds, that is used on a public highway to transport passengers or cargo. If the vehicle is used to transport people, it must be designed to transport more than 15 people. The vehicle or combination of vehicles should meet a minimum weight of 26,000 pounds if it is not transporting more than 15 people or hazardous material.

While that description helps technically define what a commercial vehicle is, it is more helpful to have some examples:

  • Box trucks
  • Buses
  • Coaches
  • Pickup trucks
  • Semi-trucks
  • Trailers
  • Travel trailers
  • Vans

When we discuss commercial vehicle accidents, we will primarily be talking about accidents involving semi-trucks. These wrecks can be catastrophic and, unfortunately, relatively common.

What Causes Waco truck accidents?

While it is possible for anyone to be involved in a car accident, certain situations render commercial vehicle drivers particularly vulnerable. First, since it is their job to drive, commercial vehicle drivers are more likely to be on the road during hazardous weather conditions. Second, the temptation to continue driving while fatigued is extremely difficult to resist.

For this reason, there are federal laws intended to stop drivers from driving while fatigued. Those laws limit the number of consecutive hours that truck drivers may be on the road without taking rest breaks. However, some trucking companies still encourage their workers to sleep as little as possible in order to make deadlines.

Next, some trucking companies fail to regularly inspect or maintain vehicles. They might fail to implement safe loading procedures, such as by loading a vehicle with too much weight. This can cause trailer swaying or whipping.

Finally, commercial vehicle drivers are also subject to the same distractions and obstacles as other drivers on the road. They can be distracted by talking on the phone or eating, or they might come across construction that is confusing to navigate. Also, commercial vehicle drivers could cause accidents by driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or could otherwise fail to follow the rules of the road.

What are the requirements for being a commercial vehicle driver?

A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is the most clear-cut requirement for commercial vehicle drivers. On top of that, there are several requirements that a driver must meet in order to obtain a CDL; this creates many levels at which the driver or his or her employer may have been negligent. We will discuss the elements of negligence more later in this article so that you can decide with your Waco injury attorney whether that theory is appropriate in your case.

Types of CDLs

Applicants for CDLs in Texas must first know the type of CDL they wish to obtain, and they must only drive the vehicle appropriate for the class of CDL they obtain.

The three classes of CDLs include

  • Class A, which allows the driver to tow vehicles weighing more than 10,000 pounds;
  • Class B, which allows the driver to tow vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds and to drive vehicles designed to transport 24 or more passengers; and
  • Class C, which allows the driver to drive vehicles designed to transport 16 to 23 passengers or to transport hazardous waste.

Get a Commercial Learner’s Permit

To get a commercial learner permit in Texas, a driver must first have a valid Texas driver’s license. Then, the applicant must provide proof of the following:

  • Citizenship or lawful presence for the United States
  • Texas residency (for example, a bill to your home address)
  • Social security number
  • Self-certified medical status to show that the applicant is physically fit to drive
  • The registration of the vehicle the driver will drive
  • The insurance of the vehicle the driver will drive

Apply for a CDL

Once the applicant obtains a learner permit, then he or she can apply for a CDL. This involves an appointment with the local driver license office with the documentation of proof of U.S. citizenship (or lawful residence), Texas residency, identity, and social security number. Then, the applicant must also pay the application fee, provide his or her thumbprints, and have his or her picture taken.

Pass the Physical Requirements

Even though the applicant personally certifies his or her health to the best of his or her knowledge, there can be additional physical requirements that applicants must pass in order to obtain a CDL. One such physical requirement involves passing a vision exam.

Pass the Knowledge Requirements

Next, applicants must pass the appropriate tests to prove their knowledge of the driving laws and regulations of Texas and the United States. The pieces of the knowledge tests that Texas CDL applicants must pass include sections covering:

  • Texas Commercial Rules
  • General Knowledge
  • Combination License Restrictions (for a Class A CDL)
  • Air Brakes (if applicable)
  • Endorsements

Pass the Skill Requirements

Once the applicant has passed the knowledge requirements, the driver must show that he or she has the skill to drive the vehicle that he or she plans to use the CDL to drive. This involves a test examiner who looks at the vehicle to make sure that the vehicle is in suitable condition and that the vehicle is of the class of CDL that the driver is trying to obtain.

Then, the driver shows his or her control of the vehicle, answering questions about the vehicle’s features. Finally, the driver shows the examiner his or her understanding of the rules of the road pertaining to the vehicle.

Get the Correct Endorsements

We have discussed classes of CDLs that allow a driver to operate a Class A, B, or C commercial vehicle. The driver must also get the appropriate endorsements for the type of commercial vehicle or the item the driver is transporting.

The following is a lift of available endorsements:

  • for transporting hazardous materials (H endorsement)
  • for operating a tank vehicle (N endorsement)
  • a combination of the H endorsement and the N endorsement (X endorsement)
  • for driving a school bus (S endorsement)
  • for driving a vehicle designed to carry a specific number of passengers (P endorsement)
  • for towing a double or triple trailer (T endorsement)

Some endorsements require an additional knowledge test and some require additional skills tests, too. The more steps there are involved in the commercial driver’s qualification, the more chances there are that the driver or the driver’s employer were negligent at some stage. Talk to an accident lawyer to see if you can investigate whether the commercial driver who crashed into you was negligently hired or was negligent because he or she did not pass all of the required testing.


What are the legal theories in commercial vehicle cases?

The overarching legal theory in commercial vehicle cases will often be one of negligence. This means that the victim of the commercial vehicle crash must prove the following:

  • The commercial vehicle driver owed the victim a duty of care.
  • The commercial vehicle driver breached his or her duty of care to the victim.
  • The victim sustained an injury of the kind for which he or she can receive compensation.
  • The victim’s injury was caused by the commercial vehicle driver.

If the commercial vehicle driver was the employee of a company and acting as an employee at the time of the crash, then the doctrine of respondeat superior may apply. In that case, the employer stands in place of the commercial vehicle driver under the negligence doctrine, meaning that the employer owed the victim a duty of care, breached that duty, and caused the victim’s compensable injury.

Standard of the Duty of Care

There is a legal duty of care when the tortfeasor—the one who caused the harm—should have prevented some foreseeable harm to the victim. For example, store owners owe a standard of care to their customers by keeping the floor clear, providing warnings of slick spots on the floor, and removing obstacles that could foreseeably cause injuries to store patrons. Doctors owe a professional standard of care to patients by staying within the average expectations of the care a doctor would be expected to provide within a particular medical field.

Drivers on the road typically are expected to take the amount of care that a reasonable person would take in preventing foreseeable harm by following general traffic laws. They are expected to signal when changing lanes, and adjust speeds and braking time for changes in the weather.

Truckers and other commercial vehicle drivers are held to standards of care beyond those expected of typical drivers in that they must perform regular maintenance checks and proper loading procedures for their vehicles. As we discussed regarding the causes of commercial vehicle accidents, drivers must also get enough sleep to ensure that they are not driving while fatigued. Drivers or companies who fail to maintain the industry standards of care will have breached the standard of care and may have been negligent.

The Victim’s Injury

The next set of elements that the victim must prove in a negligence claim pertain to the victim’s injury. The injury must be one for which the plaintiff can receive compensation. For example, the plaintiff’s injury cannot only be the fear the plaintiff felt when the commercial vehicle driver cut him off. Usually, a physical injury will suffice to show that the victim deserves to receive compensation.

Finally, the person the victim sues must have caused the injury the victim sustained. The victim of a Waco truck accident, for example, cannot sue a commercial vehicle driver’s employer if the commercial vehicle driver was not working for the employer when the accident occurred.

When the Employer Is Liable

The commercial vehicle driver’s employer must take responsibility for the driver if the driver was working at the time of the accident. Additionally, there are other ways that the employer can be negligent.

One way the employer may have been negligent is if he or she negligently hired the driver. Earlier, we discussed many of the steps that drivers must take to obtain a CDL, and if the driver has not met one or some of those steps, he or she may not be qualified to drive—or may not be qualified to operate the specific type of commercial vehicle he or she was driving. The employer may have hired someone who failed those tests or has a messy driving record.

Another way that the employer may have been negligent is by failing to enforce restrictions on the number of consecutive hours employees can drive. The employer might also poorly trained its employees on how to properly load and maintain company vehicles.

I had the privilege of working with Zinda Law Group recently and was thoroughly impressed with the level of service and support they provided.

They went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable throughout the process, and their hard work and strong advocacy ultimately led to a successful outcome. I cannot thank Zinda Law Group and their staff enough for their exceptional service and support, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their commitment to their clients and their willingness to fight for what's right truly sets them apart. In short, I give them a rating of five stars for their outstanding work.

They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.

Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
They helped me after I got into car accident, they are such a great professional business. I would honestly recommend them to anyone that would need help after a car accident for sure, they kept me up to date with everything that was happening on with my case. I had multiple people working on my said case and they were very professional and nice whenever they had called me and kept it very simple for me to understand what was actually going on. I'm extremely happy that I had found them and went with them to help me and I'm so thankful for them. 10/10 would recommend!
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

Call the zinda law group Waco Commercial Vehicle Accident lawyers for compassionate guidance

You likely expect that there should be a heightened standard for a commercial vehicle driver, and to an extent, that is true. Unfortunately, commercial vehicle drivers make human mistakes when they are fatigued or distracted.

Talk to a Waco injury lawyer to see what standard of care the commercial vehicle driver should have been held to in your case and whether the driver breached that standard of care. Your lawyer can estimate the standard of care based on the CDL requirements, the employer’s requirements, and other pieces of evidence of the standard of care.

Perhaps you are still wondering, “Is there an affordable injury lawyer near me?” or “Should I even reach out to a personal injury attorney near me?” When you talk to our Waco accident lawyers, not only will we use our experience to help you determine how to proceed, but we will also take your goals into account.

For example, some clients prioritize wrapping up litigation as quickly as possible, while other clients do not want to end the suit unless they have obtained as much compensation as possible. Our attorneys understand both of these perspectives and can let clients know the pros and cons of either approach in your unique case.

You have nothing to lose by talking to a Zinda Law Group Waco injury attorney, since we offer a free consultation. You can tell the Waco injury lawyer your story and hear his or her initial thoughts about your case.
