Improper driver training
Trucking Company Negligence: Driver Training
Trucking companies are required by federal law to make sure that their drivers are trained and meet specific standards. If a driver has not completed the required training or is otherwise unfit for the job, a lawyer may be able to hold the company liable for the damages and injuries caused by its driver.

Investigating the Accident to Strengthen Your Case
Our lawyers request training records and testing records. We interview people who can attest to the type of training provided by the truck company. We investigate the driving record of the trucker to see whether there have been similar accidents in the past. We determine whether the driver completed the training course designed for the particular truck involved in the accident or for a truck with a different load capacity. We use the information obtained through our investigation to build a strong case for our injured client.
