Could a trucking company be responsible for my accident?

Yes, depending on the circumstances. While a lot of truck accidents are caused by negligent or dangerous truck drivers, sometimes truck driving companies are the ones who are responsible for accidents.  Some of the ways that a trucking company could be considered negligent and, therefore, responsible for an accident include hiring negligently, failing to maintain its vehicles, and allowing or demanding hours of service violations.

Trucking companies have responsibilities to their own drivers and to others on the road that should not be violated.  If you have been involved in a truck accident because of trucking company negligence, get the information you need by filling out the contact form on this page.
