Trucking Company Negligence
When Trucking Companies Are To Blame For Injuries
Holding Negligent Trucking Companies Accountable
The injuries that result from truck accidents can be severe and some may even require a lifetime of medical care. Needless to say, the financial impact of these injuries is severe as well. It is unlikely that an individual truck driver can afford to pay for your immediate medical costs, to say nothing of future costs and other damages, such as pain and suffering. That is why the legal team at DeLuca & Associates, LTD will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident to see if other parties may share some of the liability.
A trucking company may be negligent in a number of ways. In general, employers are responsible for the acts of their employees, as long as the employee is carrying out his or her job duties. Trucking companies also have a duty when it comes to hiring and retaining employees. If a reasonable employer would not have hired a driver, the employer may be liable.
In addition, some companies may attempt to skirt federal regulations governing how many hours a driver may spend on the road. If a company is failing to enforce these regulations or encouraging drivers to defy the regulations, the company may be at fault. Finally, negligent maintenance of trucks may lead to accidents, such as the failing of worn-out straps causing an unsecured load to fall. Whatever the case may be, our Providence truck accident lawyers will not rest until all avenues of potential compensation have been explored.
