Did The Trucking Company Practice Negligent Hiring?

Hiring good, safe drivers is not just a good idea for trucking companies; it is the law. State and federal laws place certain obligations on truck drivers in an attempt to reduce truck accidents and improve safety on the nation's roads. Trucking companies are responsible for screening prospective drivers to ensure that they comply with laws and regulations.

Truck companies should be held accountable for putting unsafe drivers on the road

Unfortunately, companies do not always put qualified drivers on the road. When companies put drivers on the road who should not be there, the risk of truck accidents increases. Truck accidents cause enough damage with properly trained, good and safe drivers. Companies that are willing to risk the lives of their drivers and others on the road should be held accountable.

Our lawyers have handled cases involving negligent truck driver hiring practices, including hiring drivers with:

  • A history of DUI/DWIs or other traffic violations
  • A criminal background
  • Improper or inadequate training
  • A history of unsafe driving

With a team of injury professionals, including investigators, accident reconstructionists and medical care providers, we will determine whether improper hiring by truck companies caused your injury. If you were injured by a truck driver who should not have been allowed to drive, we will vigorously fight to get the compensation you deserve.
