Trucking Company Negligence
Austin Truck Accident Attorneys
Because of the size and weight of commercial trucks, the accidents they cause can be particularly dangerous for everyone involved. Trucking companies have a responsibility, not only to their drivers, but to everyone on the road, to provide the safest possible working conditions for their employees. When a preventable truck accident results from trucking company negligence, the victims may sustain devastating, life-altering injuries.

TYPES OF TRUCKING COMPANY NEGLIGENCE
When truck drivers are pressured to complete their routes in an unreasonably short amount of time, the company may be held financially accountable. Additionally, when trucking companies do not properly maintain their equipment, they may be held liable for any resulting malfunctions. The following additional forms of negligence may lead to serious truck accidents:
- Hours of service violations
- Negligent hiring
- Failure to train
- Failure to maintain vehicles
It is concerning that, in an effort to increase profits, some companies do not properly train drivers or provide adequate vehicle maintenance. Trucking companies are responsible for training employees as well as taking care of their property. When these standards are not upheld, people could be seriously injured.
