Improperly Trained Driver

Rebuilding Your Like After a Truck Accident Injury Caused by an Improperly Trained Driver

Operators of 18-wheelers, of commercial semi-trucks, must undergo proper and thorough training in order to be able to properly, and safely operate these highly complex motor vehicles. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration established specific regulations regarding the training a big rig driver must undertake. In addition, the agency also requires a prospective driver to pass a background check and a physical.

The sad reality is that time and again, on roadways across the United States, there are drivers behind the wheels of commercial trucks that are not properly trained. These semi operators have not satisfied the training requirements established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In addition, many more commercial truck drivers do not appropriately pass a required background check or do not meet the physical requirements to operate a big rig.

As a result, your very life is in danger when you get behind the wheel of your own car. If you have been injured as the result of a commercial truck accident caused by an improperly trained semi operator, you must understand your legal rights. You must take all necessary steps to protect your legal interests.

The first step in that process is meeting with a skilled, experienced, committed truck accident injury lawyer from The Doan Law Firm at (800) 349-0000. We stand ready to meet with you immediately to explain your rights and tell you what we can and will do to protect your interests.

Responsible Parties in an Improperly Trained Driver Truck Accident Injury Case

The Doan Law Firm will closely investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding your accident to ascertain all responsible parties. The driver will be responsible for an accident arising out of a lack of proper training, but that will not likely be the only party liable for your losses, damages, and injuries.

The owner of the truck, or the cartage company itself, will also be responsible. The owner of a big rig has a legal responsibility to ensure that the driver is trained appropriately and in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requirements.

The company that has product or material being carried in the truck may also be a party liable for your losses. Such an entity has a legal duty to ensure that it ships its merchandise with a reputable trucking company, including one that has qualified drivers.

Compensation in a Commercial Truck Accident Injury Case

An experienced commercial truck accident injury lawyer from our firm will fight to ensure you get the compensation you need in your case. Examples of the types of losses, damages, and injuries for which you are entitled to compensation can include:

  • lost wages
  • property damage

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
