At Volkema Thomas Miller & Scott, LPA, we are committed to helping people whose lives have been affected by truck company negligence. We have represented many people who were seriously injured or lost loved ones in dangerous trucking accidents.
There are many ways a trucking company's negligence can contribute to serious collisions, including:
- Hiring and employing drivers with questionable safety records
- Failing to properly train and discipline employees
- Failing to create, communicate and enforce safety policies
- Requiring drivers to work long hours that cause fatigue
- Creating circumstances that require drivers to use their phones or other distracting equipment while driving
- Failing to properly maintain trucks and equipment to prevent malfunctions
Even if a truck driver acts in violation of company policy — for example, by using a cellphone while driving or driving beyond allotted hours — the company is typically liable for any damages resulting from a crash. There may be an exception if the driver is not acting in the course of his or her employment at the time.
Trucking companies that operate in Ohio know us by name and reputation, which forces them to take our clients' cases seriously. They know that we have what it takes to secure the compensation our clients need after an accident.
