Righting The Wrong Of Trucking Company Negligence

Car and truck accidents can happen for a thousand different reasons. Some of those reasons have nothing to do with human error or carelessness. If a trucking company's negligence caused your accident, however, you have a right to feel angry and upset. You also have the right to seek compensation to cover your medical expenses, time off work, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Four Examples Of Dangerous Trucking Company Practices

Here are a few types of trucking company negligence that can lead to catastrophic collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians:

  1. Overloading or improperly loading the vehicles — When a company exceeds the vehicle's weight limit or loads it in a way that makes it unbalanced, the truck can become difficult to maneuver or hard to stop.
  2. Providing insufficient training — A truck company has the responsibility to thoroughly train its employees on how to operate a large motor vehicle safely. Failure to do so can cause serious accidents.
  3. Pressuring drivers to drive too fast or too long — Unrealistic expectations and deadlines can make truckers feel like they must speed or drive without breaks in order to succeed.
  4. Failing to maintain the vehicles — Like all machines, 18-wheelers and other trucks require regular maintenance to keep them functional.
