Types of Employer Negligence
Trucking companies are responsible for both the upkeep of their fleet and the safe driving of their truck drivers. Additionally, employers must work to protect employees by following certain safety protocols. However, in order to cut costs and meet deadlines, some employers may make negligent decisions, including those involving:
- Hours of service violations
- Negligent hiring
- Failure to train/inadequate training
- Failure to inspect vehicles
Any of these issues can lead to catastrophic accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt due to trucking company negligence, you should talk to a lawyer immediately.
Accidents with large, powerful semi trucks and 18-wheelers can lead to injuries such as brain trauma and spinal cord damage.
