Kankakee Failure to Train / Inadequate Training Lawyer
Trucking accidents are often devastating, especially for the occupants of any smaller vehicles involved in the collisions. To protect their drivers as well as others on the road, trucking companies have an obligation to provide their employees with the training necessary to the competent and safe operation of commercial trucks. When they fail to do so, these negligent employers can be held liable for any damages that result.
If you have suffered an injury in a truck accident caused by an untrained or under-trained driver, you are likely entitled to compensation from the company who put him or her on the road.

Hazards of Insufficient Training
Handling and operating a semi truck or 18-wheeler is no simple matter, and untrained drivers put themselves and everyone sharing the road with them at risk of catastrophic accidents. A lack of training can lead to errors such as the following:
- Improperly secured trailers
- Errors in gauging braking distances
- A lack of understanding of the vehicle’s blind spots
- Poorly loaded cargo
- Unsafe driving in inclement weather
Any of these mishaps can lead to a serious accident and major injuries to innocent drivers on the road.
