Filing a Claim for Negligent Maintenance and Hiring
Truck accident cases are often complex, with many factors that must be considered. With numerous state and federal laws that can often intertwine or conflict, knowing who to file your truck accident claim against can be confusing. Our firm can utilize all necessary resources to determine whether negligent hiring or maintenance operations were the cause of your accident.
These are some of the factors we would take into consideration during the investigation:
- Were the tires defective or uneven?
- Was maintenance regularly completed on the truck?
- Were the maintenance logs completed and in accordance with state and federal regulations?
We can also look into the employer history of the driver who is allegedly at fault to determine whether the employee received proper training and had adequate experience.
