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