Negligent Maintenance of Commercial Vehicles, Negligence in Hiring, Training or Supervising Commercial Vehicle Operators

Commercial vehicle operators and the companies that employ them have certain legal duties to help minimize the risk of injury to other motorists and pedestrians. Drivers must take reasonable care when operating a commercial vehicle. Trucking companies must perform routine maintenance of commercial vehicles and ensure that their drivers abide by driving hour regulations and take necessary breaks.
