Definition of Vehicle

A vehicle is considered any type of device which transports cargo or persons (cars, trucks, airplanes, boats, tractors, farm equipment and construction equipment). Drivers have a "duty of care" toward other drivers and failure to follow their duty, outlined in state traffic laws, can cause injury or death to other drivers. Drivers, passengers or pedestrians who have been injured by another person's breach of duty may be able to file a personal injury claim and receive compensation for their loss.
