Detroit Trucking Employer Negligence Lawyers
Trucking companies have a responsibility to their drivers and to the public to run safe trucking operations. They must abide by a variety of employment and operations laws that regulate everything from hiring practices to driver training so that their fleets pose a minimal risk to other motorists.
Sometimes, however, truck employers fail to abide by these important standards, increasing the likelihood of an accident. If you or someone you know has been hurt in a truck accident, contact the Detroit trucking employer negligence lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. today at (866) 644-6587.
Acts of Negligence
When an employer violates important laws or guidelines or otherwise puts others in danger by failing to address a preventable, hazardous condition, the employer is said to have acted negligently. There are many types of negligent actions that a trucking company may commit, such as:
- Hours of Service Violations
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train / Inadequate Training
- Failure to Inspect Vehicles
Under the law, a person or company that is guilty of negligence may be held liable for any accidents or injuries that result. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a truck accident that was caused by trucking company negligence, you have the right to initiate a lawsuit to recover compensation for your accident-related costs.
