Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Negligence
Truck driver negligence can come in many forms, including:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Intoxication or drug use
No matter what the cause was, we will find out. We will hold the truck driver accountable.
Truck Accidents Caused by The Negligence of Trucking Companies
Many accidents that were caused by driver negligence were also caused by the negligence of the driver's employer. After all, companies are responsible for the people they hire. If they are pushing an employee to spend too many hours on the road and the driver causes an accident because of fatigue, the trucking company should be held responsible as well.
If the trucking company fails to properly maintain the vehicle and it causes accidents due to bad brakes or bad tires, they should be held accountable. If they overload or improperly load a truck and it causes an accident, they should be held accountable. Our Ohio lawyers will see that they are.
