Ensuring Your Rights to Full and Fair Compensation

Truck Accidents Caused by Trucking Company Errors

Oklahoma City Truck Accident Attorneys

To seek full compensation for truck accident victims, we pursue compensation against all parties that are responsible for such accidents. One contributing factor to truck accidents that is often overlooked is truck company negligence. Examples of truck company negligence include:

  • Negligent hiring: Trucking companies have a responsibility to hire competent drivers. A trucking company may be liable for negligence if they have hired truck drivers that have a lack of experience, lack of training or a bad driving record.
  • Failure to prevent driver fatigue: Trucking companies have a responsibility to ensure that their drivers are competent to drive safely. Truck company dispatchers should know when a truck driver has logged too many miles and may be too tired to drive safely. Federal trucking laws require commercial truckers to take adequate rest breaks to prevent unnecessary fatigue.
  • Negligent truck loading: Overloaded trucks are more difficult to stop due to their weight and are more susceptible to roll-over accidents.
  • Negligent maintenance: Truck companies should properly maintain Semis and other commercial trucks to prevent the risk of a trucking accident. Tires, lights and breaks should be carefully monitored and replaced when necessary. Other parts and safety equipment should be checked and properly maintained.
