When is an Employer Considered Negligent?
The truck driver is not always the person responsible for the accident, in fact, in many situations the truck employer is the liable party after a crash. Employers have a responsibility to operate a safe business, especially as it pertains to trucks, the drivers, and the goods being transported. Whether an employer maliciously or is simply careless in his or her business practices, if they are in any way responsible for the accident, they should be held accountable for the resulting damage.
Typical forms of truck employer negligence include:
- Negligent or careless hiring practices
- Insufficient or improper driver training
- Inadequate or incorrect truck inspection
- Failure to properly load truck trailers
