Detroit Negligent Hiring Lawyers
Transportation companies have an obligation to engage in safe and professional practices. Part of that obligation involves hiring competent and capable truck and bus drivers who are appropriate for the job. Unfortunately, oftentimes companies will rush the hiring process in order to get more drivers on the road and increase productivity without regard for the consequences of such a hiring. When inexperienced or incompetent truck and bus drivers are on the roads, the likelihood of accidents occurring is greatly increased.

During the hiring process, it is critical for employers to thoroughly evaluate each potential candidate to ensure they are appropriate for the job. Unfortunately, however, many employers overlook or rush important aspects of evaluation, putting incompetent drivers behind the wheel. The failure to examine or perform the following can have dangerous repercussions:
- Driving records
- History of driving under the influence
- Background checks
- Medical records
- Chemical dependency history
The past behavior and actions of a truck or bus driver provides invaluable information regarding his or her potential to commit future errors. When employers fail to thoroughly evaluate their applicants, they are putting their drivers and the public at great risk.
