What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Trucking Company Failure to Train

Driving a large commercial truck is far from an easy job. These dangerous vehicles can be difficult to steer and control, particularly when traveling at top highway speeds. It is vitally important for all professional truckers to be carefully trained in the safe operation and maintenance of their vehicles.

Unfortunately, there are still some trucking companies that think they can cut corners without suffering significant consequences. When a freight company fails to provide the necessary training for its employees, innocent people can suffer extremely serious or even fatal injuries. If you or a member of your family has been harmed by such negligence, call Jacksonville trucking company failure to train lawyer Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088.

Defining Failure to Train

Many trucking companies hire drivers with limited experience, or even those who have not yet earned their commercial driver’s licenses, with the promise to provide the training they need. This can be a good way to hire drivers who do not require the high salaries that more experienced professionals would expect. However, this system can only be successful if companies are willing and able to provide the complete safety training that driving a truck requires.

Training should include more than the basics required to pass the commercial driver’s license exam. All drivers need to know about the correct use of safety equipment, common hazards on the road, emergency response protocol, and relevant legal regulations. If this information is not sufficiently covered, trucking companies may share in the blame for a major truck accident.
