Negligence Due to Trucking Company Mistakes
A trucking company may push its employees beyond the limits of safety to complete an order. However, this is extremely dangerous and can lead to highly destructive accidents. Truck drivers are often stretched to the limits of being able to focus and stay awake. Pressing these drivers to work even harder simply sets these individuals up for disastrous accidents.

Accidents and Trucking Companies
The truck drivers who work for a trucking company are contractually obligated in many instances to provide their driving services for a set number of hours or miles. There can be serious issues when a driver is pushed beyond these hours. Additionally, some other problems can occur when a trucking company does not treat their workers appropriately. The following can result from a trucking company’s negligence:
- Putting an inexperienced truck driver on the road
- Putting a dangerous driver on the road
- Using a poorly maintained truck
- Pushing a driver beyond their hours of service
These actions can create dangerous situations for anyone near that 18-wheeler on the road.
If you have been injured in an accident with a commercial truck driver, the trucking company that employs that driver may be responsible for your unnecessary pain and suffering.
