Inadequate Truck Driver Training Accidents
Help when trucking companies fail to train drivers
Before going on the road, truck drivers must meet certain federal truck safety standards. They must receive training that ensures drivers meet minimum safety requirements that protect themselves and others. When companies fail to provide the training, inadequately trained drivers pose a risk to everyone around them.

Thorough investigations after serious truck wrecks
Fatal truck accidents are all too common. According to the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics, there were more than 5,000 fatal trucking accidents in 2006. The number of accidents that could have been avoided with proper training is unclear, but every company has an obligation to adequately train its drivers to safely operate trucks.
When we represent you after a truck accident, our team of lawyers, investigators, accident reconstructionists and other professionals will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine whether the driver was adequately trained or whether the accident had other causes. In addition to being inadequately trained, the other driver may have been distracted or fatigued and may have failed to log the full extent of the hours driven.
