Inadequate Truck Driver Training
Injured? Call a Charleston Truck Accident Lawyer!
Sometimes, the evidence is quite clear that the truck driver who caused your accident lacked experience or did not receive the adequate amount of training. Trucking companies are required to comply with the federal laws, including abiding by the standards of safety. By not providing truck drivers with the adequate amount, the company can be held liable for the accident. Let Berthold Law Firm, PLLC investigate your case if you believe you may have a case of a truck driver or trucking company negligence. We can inform you of your rights and supply you with evidence you need to move your case forward.
Determining Company Negligence
Numerous studies show that one of the leading causes of truck accidents is due to truck driver error. While that may include actual negligence on the driver’s part, there are cases where mistakes happen because they were not prepared to react appropriately.
The company may be responsible for the following:
- Inadequate screening of job candidates
- Inadequate surveillance of employees
- Improper maintenance on trucks
- Unsecured or overloaded cargo
- Failing to enforce industry standards
Trucking companies are supervised by companies as large as big-name corporations to small business owners. In some cases, even a truck driver who employs him or herself can still be held liable. As Charleston truck accident lawyers, we believe that justice must be served. Federal laws are there to protect truck drivers from an accident, but also they were also established to prevent injury.
