Types of Trucking Company Negligence
The American economy depends heavily on large, commercial vehicles to transport goods and products nationwide. Unfortunately, truck accidents involving 18-wheelers are all too common, causing many innocent drivers like you to be involved in these accidents. But who is to blame for the accident? It could be that the trucking company itself, rather than an individual driver, was at fault and is implicated in your accident. At the Ausband & Dumont, we know it can be difficult for anyone in Atlanta to know who is at fault for their trucking accident, but with the help of a skilled attorney, you can more easily find out who should be held responsible for the losses and suffering a truck accident has caused you.
4 Examples of Trucking Company Negligence
Trucking companies are required to operate under certain standards that protect both the safety of their drivers and other people on the road. Unfortunately, trucking companies do not always act responsibly, but instead increase the chances of accidents occurring by:
- Allowing hours of service violations
- Negligent hiring
- Failing to train drivers / not providing adequate training
- Failing to inspect vehicles
These irresponsible acts can endanger not only the employees working for the company, but innocent people on the road as well.
