Truck Employer Negligence in Northern California

In a Truck Accident in Chico, Sacramento, Redding, or Roseville? We Can Help!

Truck accidents may be caused by any number of problems, but one of the most common reasons is truck employer negligence. If an employer fails to exercise caution when loading the trucks, training employees, or ensuring all trucking codes are followed, he or she should be held responsible for the damage caused by such an error in judgment.

At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, our lawyers handle trucking accidents in both state and federal court, and we are available throughout Northern California. We understand how traumatizing and painful truck accidents can be, and we are dedicated to ensuring you receive compassionate legal help while you recover from your injuries.

Proving Employer Negligence

In a personal injury case, one of the first things your lawyer will do is consider who the negligent party is. The negligent party is the person or company responsible for the accident, and thus the damages and injuries caused in that accident. In a truck accident, sometimes the truck employer can be held liable because of some negligence on their part. Sometimes an employer may knowingly act in a careless way which causes potential hazards in the truck or truck driver, or in other instances the responsibility for the crash may be a combination of driver and employer negligence.

Common examples of truck employer negligence include:

  • Negligent hiring practices, such as hiring unlicensed or unqualified drivers
  • Inadequate or improper driver training
  • Insufficient truck inspection
  • Failure to properly and safely load vehicles
  • Disregard of trucking rules and regulations

Seek Compensation for Your Damages

After an accident, you likely have medical bills for any injuries sustained, in addition to the cost of the physical damages to your vehicle and belongings, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. You have a right to seek justice and compensation from the negligent party, whether they acted knowingly or not. If you were injured in a truck accident by no fault of your own, contact our employer negligence lawyers to discuss your legal options and the possible source of liability.
