Holding Trucking Companies Accountable For Their Negligent Actions
Various Factors Can Lead To Catastrophic Accidents
Truck accidents can be tied to numerous factors, including:
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Speeding or reckless driving
Additionally, there are several steps that the trucking company itself can potentially miss that might lead to a dangerous driver, including:
Failure to perform background check
Failure to properly train a driver
Failure to ensure the operation of the truck’s safety equipment
Poorly maintained truck inspection checklist
Failure to ensure driver is following applicable “stop and rest” regulations
Following a truck accident, it is crucial that you schedule a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.
Trucking Companies Work Closely With Insurance Adjusters
As soon as possible, trucking companies will have their lawyers and insurance carrier representatives on the scene of an accident. Most often, the insurance adjuster will attempt to convince an injured driver to sign a settlement before the full extent of an injury is known. If you or a loved one was the victim of trucking company negligence, we strongly encourage you to contact an attorney before signing any documents.
