What are common problems with trucking companies after an accident?
Trucking companies can be uncooperative after an accident, especially if they did something wrong or the truck driver broke any state or federal laws. Some of the most common violations by trucking companies include:
- False records - Some trucking companies change their records after an accident in an attempt to hide illegal behavior. This includes falsifying records indicating how often the truck driver took federally mandated breaks.
- Unlicensed drivers - Sometimes, some truck drivers operate tractor-trailers without a valid CDL license or an expired license. Trucking companies often try to hide this information after an accident.
- Overloaded trucks - Strict federal guidelines exist mandating exactly how much a commercial truck can weigh. Some trucking companies push truck drivers to exceed those limits in an effort to maximize profits.
- Unsecured loads - Trucks operating with unsecured loads pose a serious accident risk. Untied cargo may fall off a truck that is traveling at full speed on a highway, causing another driver to strike the item or swerve and possibly collide with another vehicle. Unsecured load accidents often involve trucks that carry lumber or construction supplies or trucks hauling debris.
- Inexperienced drivers - There's nothing illegal about hiring an inexperienced driver, but many trucking companies don't want other people to know that the driver who caused an accident had little or no experience before the accident.
- Poorly maintained trucks - Trucking companies are required to maintain their vehicles and keep them in safe, running condition. When trucking companies fail to do so and the trucks are involved in an accident, some companies try to hide such information.
