What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Trucking Company Negligent Hiring

Many people say that every field has people who should not be working within it. In some cases, however, this mistake is more dangerous than in others. A truck driver who lacks the training or skill to perform his or her job well is a major threat to everyone on the road. Accordingly, trucking companies that fail to properly screen job applicants can be held responsible for resulting injuries.

If your life has been affected by a traffic accident caused by a trucking company’s negligent hiring practices, you could have grounds for a legal claim. Jacksonville trucking company negligent hiring attorney Don Guthrie will fight to win the full amount of compensation you deserve. Call our offices today at 904-296-1088.

Examples of Trucking Company Negligent Hiring

Most cases of negligent hiring fall into one of two categories: either a company has failed to take proper precautions when hiring truckers, or they have knowingly hired unqualified drivers. You may be eligible for compensation if you have been injured by a trucker who was hired despite:

  • Previous traffic violations on his or her records
  • Prior convictions for drunk driving or other crimes
  • Termination from a previous trucking job for poor performance
  • Lack of a commercial driver’s license
  • Failed drug tests, or lack of any drug test

There is no justification for freight companies that endanger people’s lives by hiring dangerously unqualified drivers. Our committed Jacksonville negligent trucker hiring lawyers are proud to help victims of such negligence pursue the justice they deserve.
