Cartage or Trucking Company Owner Negligence
Protect Your Rights After a Commercial Truck Accident Caused by Negligence Owner
A commercial truck owner, or cartage or trucking company, owes other motorists on public roadways a duty of care. The duty of care means that a truck owner must take certain steps to ensure that a semi is operated on a roadway in a reasonable safe condition. A truck accident injury lawyer from The Doan Law Firm can brief you on what is meant by a truck company's duty of care and how it relates to your case. You can reach out to The Doan Law Firm right now by calling (800) 349-0000.
In order to satisfy this important duty of case, a truck owner or trucking company must undertake a variety of actions. These include:
- proper truck maintenance
- comprehensive training of driver
- proper supervision of driver
- thorough truck inspections
- compliance with regulations
- proper work schedule for driver
A sad reality is that oftentimes the owner of a commercial truck, or a trucking company, falls short on its duty of care. When that occurs, this conduct can contribute to the underlying cause of a truck accident.
