Wausau Failure to Train Attorneys

When trucking companies hire drivers, they may seek both experienced drivers as well as drivers who have never been behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler. While inexperienced drivers may be hired at a lower cost to the company, the company must be able to provide training that fully prepares new drivers for the challenge of operating a large and potentially dangerous vehicle. If a trucking company fails in their responsibility to provide thorough training which creates safe and competent drivers, they may be liable for an accident caused by a poorly trained driver.

If you or someone you love was injured in a truck accident caused by a truck driver who was not adequately trained, it may be appropriate to pursue financial compensation by suing the trucking company.

Consequences of Failure to Train

Operating a large commercial vehicle requires a set of knowledge and skills that must be taught by experienced professionals. When a trucking company lacks adequate training for their drivers, the following deficits in knowledge and skill may be present:

  • Lack of understanding of the appropriate steps to take in an emergency
  • Lack of knowledge of how to deal with a truck malfunction
  • Lack of familiarity with laws governing the operation of the truck
  • Lack of familiarity with common safety practices among commercial vehicle drivers
  • Lack of basic knowledge such as how to check blind spots, how long it takes to stop, and how to properly handle turns in a large vehicle

Truck drivers without the skills and training to operate their machines pose a serious threat to the safety and well-being of other individuals sharing the road.
