Trucking companies and transportation firms are required to make sure truck drivers are properly supervised. This is a safety precaution based on the incredible damage that can be caused by 40-ton tractor-trailers and semi-trucks. Even the slightest driver error can result in serious injuries and death.
Proper supervision of truck drivers can help identify unsafe drivers and reinforce safe driving habits. Transportation companies are obligated to monitor drivers’ performance and take safeguards to make sure driver logs are not falsified. Truck drivers face strict limits on the number of hours they can spend behind the wheel each day.
Trucking companies that fail to properly supervise drivers can be held liable for motor vehicle accidents. The legal team at The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson has experience representing victims of commercial truck accidents involving improper training and supervision of truck drivers.
