Trucking Company Negligence

Is the truck company responsible? Find out here.

Trucking companies are required to comply with federal and state government regulations. Specific standards have been set for the maintenance and operation of commercial trucks so that the chances of an accident are minimized. Although commercial trucking companies often complain these regulations limit their ability to make a profit. Since there is limited enforcement of these important regulations, it is imperative that trucking companies are held responsible by an Atlanta truck accident attorney for injuries they cause. Trucking companies are financially responsible for truck accidents that result in property damage, injury or death. This is true whether the accident was caused by an employee (truck driver) or by truck company negligence. To better explain how trucking companies are negligent, the following examples are listed below.
