When employers entrust the use of dangerous equipment to an employee’s use, the employer has a legal duty to ensure the equipment will be used properly and safely. The employer also assumes legal responsibility and liability in the event that an accident and injuries occur.
Employers’ duties often include the proper training and supervision of employees. If you have been injured in a truck accident, it’s possible the accident was caused by the trucking company’s failure to comply with Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) regulations and to properly screen, monitor, train and supervise employers.
Many truck accidents are in fact preventable occurrences that could have been avoided had the transportation company properly trained and supervised truck driver employees. For an investigation of your truck accident, call Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., at 866-689-1248.
