Are trucking companies liable for trucking company accidents?

Trucking companies are generally liable for accidents caused by their drivers, but attorneys who have experience in pursuing cases against trucking companies understand that to really get the best result in a case involves proving that the trucking company did something negligent that caused or contributed to the driver error that ultimately resulted in the accident.

Trucking companies are obligated to make sure that only drivers who are properly qualified and trained are ever on the road, and trucking companies have an obligation to monitor their drivers once they are on the road to make sure that they are complying with all of the federal and state laws that are applicable. There are various ways that we can track drivers to make sure that they are properly logging their hours of service and not exceeding their hours of service.
