Examples of Trucking Company Negligence
When you are involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, it may seem natural to automatically blame the truck driver. While it may have been his or her fault in some instances, often the trucking company itself is actually the entity responsible. The attorneys of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP help Massachusetts truck accident victims determine which party can be held accountable for their accident, injury, or expenses. Additionally, our legal assistance can be counted on during the pursuit of compensation.
4 Types of Trucking Company Negligence
Negligence can be said to occur if a trucking company is acting in such a way that it puts its own interests above the safety of others, including workers. Four of the most common forms of trucking company negligence include:
- Negligent Hiring
- Improper / Incomplete Training
- Improper Maintenance
- Hours of Service Violations
Any of these actions by a trucking company may be considered negligent. Sadly, many companies that commit one form of negligence are often lacking in other company practices as well, putting even more people at risk for injury and expense.
