Everything You Need to Know About Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Commercial vehicle accidents happen more than you think, and oftentimes people don’t know what to do in these types of situations. A commercial vehicle otherwise known as a company vehicle is a car, van, truck, or bus that is owned and operated by a company to be used by employees of that company. These include but aren’t limited to: delivery trucks, garbage trucks, transportation busses, and anything else that is used to transport goods, services or passengers related to work-related employee transportation.


Did you know? Accidents with commercial vehicles can happen as often as any car or trucking accident. However, once a crash occurs with these types of vehicles representative from the company and the insurance carrier will investigate the accident almost immediately. Commercial insurance companies have teams of attorneys and adjusters to help protect the company from risks and high expenses.

Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, P.C. Awarded $18,000,000 Million Jury Verdict

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A Jefferson County Circuit Court jury returned a verdict on Thursday, November 7th, 2019, awarding $18,000,000.00 in damages to U.S. Army and Afghanistan combat veteran, Zachary Lucas, who suffered a catastrophic brain injury when he was struck on I-22 by a van driven by Michael Cannon. Mr. Cannon was insured by Progressive Insurance Company.


The case was tried for four days by Brandon Bishop and Andrew Moak of Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, P.C.


“We are extremely proud of our stellar legal team that worked to obtain the recent verdict on behalf of our client, Zachary Lucas. At Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, we will fight to bring our clients the justice deserved,” states Alexander Shunnarah. “The 7th Amendment provides the right of trial by jury and we are proud to execute this right on behalf of our deserving clients.”


At approximately 10:00 P.M. on November 16, 2015, Mr. Lucas’ motorcycle ran out of gas, and he pulled it to the shoulder of the highway. The location of the crash was the main issue in the case. Mr. Lucas’ attorneys argued that Cannon struck him while inspecting the motorcycle on the shoulder of the road, and Mr. Lucas offered expert testimony and physical evidence to the jury that proved that the impact occurred on the shoulder of the road.


Mr. Lucas’ injuries were serious and life-threatening. Although he wore a helmet at the time of the crash, Mr. Lucas suffered a fractured skull and brain hemorrhages that left him with serious and permanent physical and mental deficits. With several members of his family on hand in the courtroom gallery, Mr. Lucas offered dramatic and compelling testimony to the jury about his injuries and their effect on his life.


Attorney Brandon Bishop states, “We gave Progressive Insurance Company a full opportunity to settle Zac’s case before we filed a lawsuit against its insured, Michael Cannon. Instead, Progressive chose to offer Zac $12,500.00 and sent the message that if he did not accept it, the insurance company would take the case to trial. Clearly, the jury agreed with Zac and we are glad that they did.”


Attorney Andrew Moak states, “Nobody deserved this verdict more than Zac Lucas, whose injuries are as devastating to him and to his family as anything we have ever seen. Zac will hopefully now be able to finally get the help that he badly needs.”


The jury deliberated for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes before returning the unanimous verdict for $18,000,000.00, finding that Michael Cannon was responsible for Zac Lucas’ medical bills, his permanent injuries and the physical pain and suffering and mental anguish that were consequences of his injuries.

Alexander Shunnarah’s Thanksgiving Travel Tips

Traveling is at an all time high during the holidays. Whether it’s traveling for a family gathering, holiday parties or a much needed vacation. Actually, according to the American Automobile Association, an estimated 43.4 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home over Thanksgiving weekend — and 90 percent of those will travel by car. At Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, P.C. we want to make sure you have a safe and fun Thanksgiving. Read our tips below on how to be prepared and travel safely this Thanksgiving. 

  • Plan Ahead: Decide well in advance who will be driving, the route you’ll be taking and when you’ll be leaving to give you ample time to make sure you’re prepared. For example, if you decide to leave late at night make sure you get as much rest as possible before hitting the roads so you can stay awake and alert the entire drive.

  • Pack Safely: It’s easy to pile all the luggage into the trunk when getting ready to travel. However, it’s important to make sure you pack all of your belongings safely. Some questions you should ask yourself before you hit the road is, “Can the driver see through the back?” or “Is there any luggage that could cause damage to someone in the car if we were to get in an accident?” If the answer to any of these questions is yes then we suggest you rethink how your car is packed.

  • Don’t get distracted: Using your cell phone while driving can be deadly. We know that it’s common to get phone calls or text messages that you need to answer before your traveling is over but hand the phone off to a passenger or connect your phone to your car’s bluetooth if that’s available.  If you’re using your cell phone for directions make sure you have it going before you put your car in drive and have it stored somewhere that the driver can see it easily.

  • Watch Your Social Media Use: We know how exciting it can be to get together with your loved ones, but be careful what you put on social media. Announcing your travel plans over social media may make your home a target for burglars. Nowadays burglars use social media platforms as a way to identify homes that are vacant during holidays like Thanksgiving.

  • Leave the Lights On: It’s a simple thing to forget but it could save you from coming home to a house that’s been vandalized or burglarized. If you can’t leave a light on, that’s completely understandable, but find some way to make it look like someone’s home. Maybe get someone to check on the house periodically while you’re gone or install an ADT sign somewhere in the front of your house to scare off potential threats.

There are a ton of things that you can do to help keep you and your loved ones safe this Thanksgiving. We hope these 5 tips will keep your safe this Thanksgiving. If you or a loved one gets into an accident call Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, P.C., our team will be there to help you.
