Unfortunately, it is our experience that the trucking industry spends a great deal of effort in maintaining profit margins because of all the increase’s in fuel, insurance and expenses. As a result, we have found that trucking companies have lowered their standards in hiring and retaining drivers. We have worked with the U.S. Agency responsible for supervision and enforcement of unfit drivers, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. We have successfully litigated and proven that trucking companies sometimes fail to determine a potential driver’s suitability for the job, including investigating that driver’s experience, previous training and past driving record. Companies are hiring the cheapest drivers in the quickest manner possible. As a result unsafe and unprofessional drivers are getting behind the wheel of an eighty thousand pound big rig. This is a danger to us all.
When we represent a truck accident victim, we carefully investigate the driver’s performance to determine if his or her actions caused the accident. We are very experienced in handling truck accidents. In every serious injury truck case we will determine if the driver should have been on the road in the first place. We will analyze whether the driver has a history of accidents, did he fail any prior drug tests, does he have a history of chemical dependency, criminal record history, falsified his records, or any medical conditions which would affect his ability or impair his ability to drive a big rig. We know of cases where truckers have literally doctor shopped to find a doctor who will overlook a serious health condition.
If any of these answers are yes, we will bring a separate claim against the trucking company for negligent hiring and retention of the truck driver. This will include a separate claim for additional damages for our clients.
The Transportation Department released statistics that 5,300 people died in crashes involving trucks or buses in 2006; and about 126,000 were injured. The leading causes of serious trucking accidents are drivers falling asleep, suffering heart attacks or seizures or otherwise being physically impaired.
