Management and Third Party Negligence

Motor Carriers and Truck Management Companies Are Responsible for Driver Conduct

When a truck accident happens, it is second nature to try to determine what the truck driver may have done wrong. Yes, many truck accidents are the result of driver error. Often, though, the truck driver was put into a dangerous situation because of illegal company policies or management's violations of federal regulations.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates and oversees truck company management policies regarding concerns such as driver scheduling, vehicle maintenance, loads and driver licensing and training. When a driver makes a mistake or the truck has mechanical problems that cause an accident, often the first place to look is at company management.

Third-Party Liability

In nearly every truck accident case, there is a third party that may also share liability for compensation. These parties include:

  • Product-loading dock workers
  • Maintenance contractors
  • Truck equipment manufacturers
  • Road construction crews, highway designers

We Know How Devastating a Truck Accident Can Be to You and Your Family

At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, we have seen how victims and family members are affected by a serious injury or wrongful death in a truck accident. Too many times, victims think they will be able to get fair compensation from the truck company. The truth is, truck companies and their insurers fight aggressively to minimize their liability. It is not surprising to hear a client tell us that a trucking company blamed them for an accident. We know that most people do not want to have to hire a lawyer. But the truth is, full and fair compensation after a serious truck accident almost always amounts to more than what the trucking company is willing to pay.
