Types of Employer Negligence
Employer negligence is a broad term meant to encompass the various negligent
actions that an employer may commit. In the realm of commercial trucking,
this negligence may include:
- Hours of Service Violations
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train/Inadequate Training
- Failure to Inspect
Aside from being potentially hazardous to the truck driver, these forms
of negligence may be harmful to other drivers on the road, as well. A
truck driver who does not receive the correct training, scheduling, or

on the road.
Victims of trucking accidents may be entitled to financial compensation
if they can prove that employer negligence occurred. It is important to
