Employer Negligence / Liability
Accidents that involve large trucks or 18-wheelers can be more devastating to other people involved than other accidents, simply due to the sheer size of the vehicle. Although an individual operates the truck at the time of a collision, sometimes the party truly responsible is the trucking company itself. Truck driver employer negligence contributes to circumstances that too often lead to serious car accidents.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a commercial truck accident, you do not have to face this overwhelming situation alone. The Atlanta employer negligence legal team at the Ausband & Dumont understands the serious injury and damage a truck accident can cause, and we will aggressively pursue financial compensation from liable trucking companies in the civil court system.
Common Forms of Trucking Company Negligence
Trucking company negligence puts everyone on the road in danger, whether because drivers were improperly trained or vehicles lacked maintenance. Unfortunately, the following forms of trucking company negligence commonly lead to car accidents:
- Hours of Service Violations
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train / Inadequate Training
- Failure to Inspect Vehicles
It is the trucking company’s liability to ensure that safety standards in regards to employees and vehicles are strictly upheld, for the well-being of everyone. When trucking companies neglect to uphold these standards, they may be held financially responsible for their negligence.
