The Importance of Careful Training & Hiring

The safe operation of a large commercial truck is not something that can be completed by a novice. Every driver must start his or her career somewhere, but that does not mean that it is acceptable for trucking companies to put someone behind the wheel without ensuring all training courses have been completed. Only when it can be said with confidence that the truck driver is ready to control such a massive vehicle on his or her own should he or she be put on active duty. With this in mind, someone should not be hired if there are reasons to believe he or she cannot responsibly handle a commercial vehicle.

Indications that someone should not be a truck driver include:

  • Notable past of violence or aggression
  • DUI arrests on criminal record
  • Multiple traffic citations on driving history
  • Mental illness or other debilitating condition

Let us put our investigative skills to good use by directing our efforts towards determining if the parent company should have not hired the trucker in the first place.

After my accident I was in so much pain and so confused that I didn't know where to go, so I contacted the Injury Law Center. Joe would sit and he would listen and talk to me and hear what I was saying and what was really going on with me. He explained everything. It really made a difference and gave me a peace of mind. I knew that he knew me well enough to take care of my best interests. He heard the story behind everything and made sure that the insurance company had to take action. Deb Brosnan

If someone I cared for was going to be going through something like this I would definitely recommend Injury Law Center as your first point of reference. My case went on for a very long time, over a year, and we were on very good terms the entire time. Attorney Russo came to visit me several times in the hospital and brought me things to do in rehab. They were very supportive the entire time. Injury Law Center was able to exceed my expectations and I am able to live comfortably without having to work. Valerie

I had a car accident that affected my business and my ability to deal with insurance companies was very difficult. Joe stayed the course and we were offered very fair compensation.I think it was because of Joe and the hard work of the team. It was a very long trial but it turned out to be in our favor which we were very happy about. Mat Morello
