semi2iStock_000006722398SmallOn December 22, 2010, Robert Barr was driving north on Texas Highway 6 when the commercial tractor-trailer in front of him attempted to make a right-hand turn. The trucker turned incorrectly, causing his truck to take up two lanes of traffic and causing Barr to slam into the back of the big rig. Barr died in the accident, which investigators discovered took place because of the truck driver’s poor maneuvering skills. Later, the trucking company itself was found at fault for the accident because they hired an inexperienced driver for the job.

Dangerous truck company hiring practices

Unfortunately, the story above is far too common in Texas and across the United States: trucking companies are negligent when hiring drivers, and those drivers in turn cause serious and sometimes deadly accidents that should have never happened in the first place. Some trucking companies fail to run background checks on their drivers. Some hire drivers with a history of drunk driving or other driving infractions. Some even hire drivers without a valid commercial driver’s license. In other cases, trucking companies may hire a driver with a dangerous medical condition that could cause him or her to lose consciousness behind the wheel.
