Trucking Company Negligence
On the scene of a truck accident, after your life has suddenly been disrupted by a collision with an 18-wheeler, there are likely to be many questions and few answers. Your physical injuries and the damage to your vehicle may be quite severe and will probably require substantial and immediate medical attention or costly repairs, respectively. For cases in which the accident is caused by the negligence of a trucking company, it may be appropriate for you to consider filing a civil lawsuit against the company to seek financial compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.
Relying on your insurance company to ensure that you receive the full payment that you are due will leave you with little but disappointment. Our firm can help you fight for the financial compensation that you are rightfully owed. Contact the trucking company negligence lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
Examples of Trucking Company Negligence
Though it is certainly tempting to point the finger directly at the driver of the commercial truck when seeking to assign blame after an accident, and this may sometimes be appropriate, it is often the case that such an approach will fail to identify the true underlying cause of a truck accident and therefore will not prevent similar incidents in the future. Examples of trucking company negligence include:
- Hours of Service Violations
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train
- Failure to Maintain Vehicles
Trucking companies attempt to maximize their profits by failing to comply with the standards and regulations imposed by the law, but they do so at their own peril.
