Truck Company Employers Are Liable for the Actions of Their Employees
A truck company employer has to use due care in hiring, training and supervising their drivers. If one of their drivers is negligent or reckless, then the employer or trucking company will also be held liable for that negligence. When an independent contractor of a trucking company is involved, we still may be able to hold the company liable if the contractor was engaged in some act that was so potentially dangerous that the employer should not be free from punishment.
Our firm will represent you in your claim against the truck driver as well as against the truck company. Truck driving companies will often pursue settlement to avoid a long court battle. If the settlement offer is not in your interests, we will advocate aggressively for you in litigation.
