Trucking and transportation companies are legally obligated to make sure their drivers are thoroughly trained professionals in the safe operation of today’s modern and complicated 18-wheeler commercial trucks. Serious safety problems arise when trucking companies choose profits before safety and fail to hire and properly train professional truck drivers.
Among other things, transportation companies are required to make sure drivers are thoroughly trained in the rules of the road (The federal Department of Transportation and state rules and regulations). They must supervise drivers and make sure that driver time logs are accurate. Trucking companies also must conduct detailed background checks to identify drivers with problem safety and employment records.
Improper truck driver training is a serious problem that can have deadly consequences. The legal team at The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson has decades of experience investigating serious truck crashes and holding trucking companies accountable for improperly training drivers.
