Danville Negligent Hiring Attorneys
Semi trucks and 18 wheelers are inherently dangerous due to their size and weight. Additionally, they can be difficult to maneuver and, as such, should only be operated by adequately trained professionals. It is a main responsibility of trucking companies to hire only drivers who are qualified and likely to perform the job safely. If they become careless about the screening and hiring process, they could endanger everyone on the road by allowing unqualified people to drive their trucks.
If you have been involved in a trucking accident that could have been prevented if the trucking company had been more careful in its hiring process, you may be able to take legal action against the negligent trucking company. A dedicated Danville negligent hiring attorney from Spiros Law, P.C., may be able to help you receive financial compensation for medical expenses, property loss, or emotional turmoil associated with the accident. Call our offices at (217) 443-4343 to learn about your legal options.
Important Hiring Information
Before hiring a truck driver, a trucking company should always check for the following:
- That the driver possesses a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL)
- That the driver does not have a history of alcohol or drug abuse
- That the driver has a good driving record
- That the driver has not been responsible for any fatal accidents
If a trucking company fails to adequately screen their applicants before making hiring decisions, they could be putting everyone who encounters that driver on the road at risk.
Trucking companies that fail to responsibly hire drivers should be held accountable for their negligence when it causes you or someone you love to be injured. Call (217) 443-4343 to discuss your case with an experienced Danville negligent hiring lawyer of Spiros Law, P.C., today.
