What is a commercial or company vehicle?

We try to make it clear to people that a commercial or company vehicle accident is very different than an ordinary car crash.  But sometimes people are confused or have questions about what a “commercial vehicle,” or “company vehicle” is.  How do you know if you were injured by a “company vehicle?”

What Is A Company Vehicle Anyways?

 A company vehicle can be just like any other car or truck that you or I would drive every day, or it can be a large commercial vehicle.  The way to distinguish the difference is this:  A company vehicle is ANY vehicle that is used by an employee of a company or business.  Sometimes it’s very obvious, other times it may not be.  A simple test is to look at who owns the vehicle.  If it is owned or operated by a business, it’s a company vehicle.


Here are some of the most common examples of company vehicles:

  • 18-Wheelers
  • Oil Field Work Trucks
  • Agricultural truck
