Trucking Company Negligence Claims
While large commercial trucks and 18-wheelers may inherently pose a threat to the drivers around them, the risk of an accident may be substantially mitigated by extensively-trained drivers and with regular truck maintenance. As such, when trucking companies are negligent and fail to properly train their drivers or maintain their fleet of vehicles, they may be held liable for any accident that results from that negligence. Accidents involving commercial trucks can be particularly dangerous due to the often vast disparity between their size and the vehicles they collide with.
Common Forms of Trucking Company Negligence
Depending upon the exact circumstances of your accident, it may be possible to hold the trucking company financially responsible for the injuries you sustained in your accident, including for:
- Hours of Service Violations
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train
- Failure to Maintain Vehicles
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, an experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to help you determine the extent of the damages you sustained and help you build a legal strategy to recover those damages from any negligent trucking company.
