Truck Accidents Caused by Employer Negligence

Contact a Houston Truck Accident Attorney Today

Determining liability for a truck accident can be a complex task. The driver of the truck is not the only person who may be liable for a serious or fatal collision – depending on the circumstances of the accident, there may be one or more other parties that can be held legally responsible. In some cases, the truck driver’s employer may be to blame for a serious accident.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a preventable truck accident, contact Haines Law, P.C. to request a free consultation with our experienced Houston personal injury lawyer.

What Constitutes Employer Negligence?

Trucking companies can exhibit negligence in several ways, including:

  • Hiring a driver without a valid CDL
  • Hiring a driver with a history of accidents
  • Hiring a driver with a history of traffic infractions
  • Hiring an inexperienced/inadequately trained driver
  • Retaining a driver, the company knows to be unqualified

Because of the high nationwide demand for truck drivers, many truck companies are cheaply hiring new drivers without adequate experience or training and putting them in charge of the safe operation of 80,000-pound trucks. Without proper defensive driving and collision avoidance training, inexperienced drivers have an increased risk of causing an accident when they are forced to make split-second decisions in emergency situations. Other common forms of negligence include hiring drivers with a history of alcohol or drug use and failing to perform proper background checks on prospective hires.
