Louisville Negligent Hiring Lawyers

Commercial trucking companies are responsible for hiring truck drivers who are not only safe behind the wheel, but drivers who can also be trusted to not act recklessly and put other people’s lives in danger. Unfortunately, a number of trucking companies negligently hire truck drivers without performing thorough background checks, knowingly sending dangerous individuals out on the roads.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident with a commercial truck because of the driver’s reckless actions, you may be able to take legal action by filing a civil lawsuit against the trucking company for negligent hiring. Let a Louisville negligent hiring lawyer at the Sampson Law Firm evaluate your case by contacting us at 502-584-5050.

Preventing Negligent Hiring

When trucking companies quickly hire a driver without conducting a proper background check, they may be hiring drivers who can threaten the lives of thousands of people on the road. You may be able to take legal action against a trucking company if they hired a driver without performing any of the following:

  • Drug tests
  • Physical examination
  • Driving record test
  • Criminal background checks

The above tests should always be administered by employers before hiring a driver and if they aren’t, you should consider taking legal action in order to hold them liable.
