Negligent Trucking Companies
While 18-wheelers and other large commercial vehicles are intrinsically dangerous to the drivers of comparatively small vehicles, trucking companies who uphold all state and federal standard safety regulations can dramatically reduce the number of accidents that their vehicles and drivers cause. With that in mind, when trucking companies are negligent in upholding the most standard and basic safety regulations, they may be held financially liable for any damages that their vehicles and drivers cause.
Dangerous Forms of Trucking Company Negligence
While any breach of state or federal standard safety regulations may constitute negligence on part of any trucking company, we have found the following forms of trucking company negligence to be among the most potentially dangerous:
- Hours of Serving Violations
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train
- Failure to Maintain Vehicles
As a direct result of the massive size of large commercial vehicles and 18-wheelers, the damages and injuries sustained in these accidents are likely to be extensive and require prolonged medical care. Our Atlanta legal team will help you build a comprehensive legal strategy to help you recover any and all damages sustained as the result of a trucking company’s negligence.
