What if the Driver Who Caused My Accident Had an Expired Commercial Driver’s License?


In order to operate a commercial vehicle in Texas, a driver is required to obtain and maintain proper licensing as well as adhere to strict federal and state guidelines. If the commercial driver that caused your accident is not licensed or has allowed their license to expire, they should not have been on the road and your wreck should have never occurred.

If the driver in you commercial vehicle accident was not licensed or allowed their license to expire, you may also have a case against that driver’s employer.
