Tow truck

A tow truck is a specialized commercial vehicle designed for the purpose of towing and transporting disabled or improperly parked vehicles. These vehicles play a crucial role in providing roadside assistance and recovery services for cars and trucks in need. However, due to their size, weight, and the nature of their operations, tow trucks are commonly involved in auto accidents.

    What Are the Different Types of Towing trucks?

    Tow trucks come in various types, including flatbeds, hook and chain, and wheel lift trucks. They are equipped with specialized equipment like booms, winches, and towing hitches to safely tow and transport vehicles. However, their operations can be complex, involving loading and securing vehicles, maneuvering in tight spaces, and navigating heavy traffic conditions, which can increase the risk of accidents.

    What Causes of Towing Accidents?

    Several factors contribute to tow truck accidents, including:

    Driver error

    Like any other commercial vehicle, tow truck accidents can occur due to driver negligence, such as distracted driving, speeding, or reckless maneuvers.

    Improper loading

    Inadequate securing of vehicles on the tow truck bed or improper weight distribution can lead to instability and accidents during transportation.

    Equipment failure

    Malfunctioning tow truck equipment, such as faulty winches or defective hitches, can cause accidents and injuries.

    Poor maintenance

    Neglected maintenance and lack of regular inspections can result in mechanical failures and contribute to accidents.


    Tow truck drivers often work long hours and may suffer from driver fatigue, leading to impaired judgment and slower reaction times.


    Who is Liable in Tow Accidents?

    Determining liability in tow truck accidents can be complex. It may involve multiple parties, such as the tow truck driver, the towing company, the vehicle owner, or even other drivers involved in the accident. A skilled truck accident lawyer from MVP Accident Attorneys can thoroughly investigate the accident, gather evidence, and identify the responsible parties to build a strong case for compensation.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
