Cedar Rapids Employer Negligence / Liability Attorney
The first step in preventing dangerous truck accidents from happening is to make sure that the hiring, training, and employment practices of trucking companies are complete and thorough.
It is nearly impossible for any truck driver to do his or her job properly without sufficient preparation. If an unprepared truck driver causes an accident, responsibility for that accident lies with the trucking company that failed to provide an employee with the tools and training necessary to perform a job safely.
Unfortunately, the irresponsible and outright lazy actions of these trucking companies often go unnoticed or unpunished, which provides no incentive for trucking companies to behave in a more responsible manner. To help bring a case against reckless trucking companies, contact the Cedar Rapids trucking company negligence lawyers at Leehey Olson Law, P.C. today.
