Overview

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

A commercial trucking company is responsible for maintaining its fleet in safe operating condition. Truck drivers also have a duty to examine their trucks and freight before getting on the road. Trucks with substandard brakes, tires, headlights or unsecured freight pose substantial and unnecessary risks to other drivers on the road, and they frequently cause serious or fatal truck accidents that could have been avoided.
