How Negligent Hiring Practices Lead to Truck Accidents

By John Page on May 19, 2017

Truck Accident Lawyers in St. LouisWhen a truck driver is working for a company and causes a crash, the trucking company that employs the driver may be liable for the damage and injuries caused.

In addition, trucking companies may face liability for their own actions or inactions. One common example of trucking company negligence is negligent hiring.

Negligent hiring means the company hired someone to drive a commercial truck when the company knew or should have known the driver was not qualified.

Trucking companies often lower their standards when they are in need of drivers to haul freight. This potentially results in dangerous drivers behind the wheel of the largest vehicles on the road.

The following are some signs that truck drivers may be a risky hire:

If a trucking company hired someone to drive despite a risky driving past, it puts everyone on the road in harm’s way. If injuries occur because the truck driver acted negligently, the trucking company may be held liable for its negligent hiring practices.

Proving negligent hiring requires an extensive amount of work. It’s important to hire an experienced attorney that has a history of pursuing negligent hiring claims against large trucking companies. This type of case requires significant resources, and Page Law has the resources to handle your claim.
