Louisville Failure to Train Lawyers

At any moment of any day, millions of commercial trucks or 18-wheelers drive across the nation, delivering products and goods to suppliers. Before hitting the road, drivers are supposed to receive proper training to ensure they know the basics of operating these sometimes difficult or complicated machines and can drive for hours at a time without putting innocent lives at risk. Operating these large trucks is very different from driving a passenger vehicle and without training, drivers may be putting their lives and the lives of other motorists at risk.

With large blind spots and a different braking system, truck drivers need adequate training before hitting the road. Unfortunately, many truck companies fail to provide sufficient training in order to save time and money. If you or someone you know has been injured in a truck accident by a driver who didn’t receive proper training, contact a Louisville personal injury attorney of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050 and take the first step toward building your case.

Why is Truck Driver Training Important?

Training isn’t just a suggestion or luxury offered to some drivers and not others. It is a requirement. Without proper training, drivers may not know how to safely operate a vehicle and, therefore, could make the following mistakes:

  • Not fully understanding the complexities of the truck’s mechanical system
  • Failing to brake properly
  • Inability to turn correctly
  • No experience driving with large blind spots or “no zones”
  • Stalling the vehicle because he or she doesn’t know how to operate the transmission

Operating a commercial truck is nothing like driving a normal vehicle. Drivers need training and practice driving these vehicles before they get on the road to keep motorists safe.
