Rhinelander Failure to Train Attorneys

Trucking companies provide a very useful service to many companies and the U.S. economy by transporting goods and services across the country and employing Americans as truck drivers. However, because trucks and 18-wheelers are much more difficult to operate than standard commercial vehicles, drivers must undergo more extensive training in order to be able to properly operate these vehicles. Thus, when a trucking company fails to train their drivers adequately, a driver may be much more at risk of making a serious error and causing an accident as a result.

If you have been injured in a trucking accident because of an insufficiently trained truck driver, you may be able to hold the trucking company liable for your medical expenses.

Types of Training Negligence

Trucks require a specific skill set to operate due to their size and maneuverability, skills which should be provided by trucking companies to ensure their drivers are capable of practicing safe driving behavior. A few ways in which companies might fail to train their drivers are:

  • Not providing the training or means to record their hours of service
  • Failure to instruct them on freeway driving versus city street driving
  • Failure to teach them how to unlatch and secure the trailer
  • Failure to ensure they know how to turn and otherwise maneuver the truck

When companies do not adequately train their drivers, the drivers are much more likely to make errors that could result in severe injuries and costly accidents for other innocent drivers.
