How Can Trucking Companies Contribute to Accidents?

Posted on 12/26/2014Back

At GoldenbergLaw, our Minnesota truck accident lawyers are quite adept at identifying all liable parties after a wreck. Liability often rests hundreds of miles from the scene of the accident, and it requires a skilled, experienced attorney to look beyond the truck driver to find the responsible party.

That responsible party is often the trucking company. Driven by profit, these companies often cut corners and behave in negligent ways that contribute to accidents. This behavior is unacceptable.

Trucking companies can contribute to accidents by:

  • Setting unrealistic schedules that force truckers to operate their vehicles while severely fatigued
  • Not maintaining their vehicles properly
  • Not providing the proper training to drivers

Of course, these issues are rarely evident at the scene of the accident. Our truck accident lawyers are even willing to go beyond Minnesota’s borders to investigate an out-of-state trucking company if such effort is required.

If you’ve been hurt by a truck accident anywhere in Minnesota, let our lawyers discuss your options with you. Please contact GoldenbergLaw today for a free consultation.
