Truck drivers of 18-wheeler vehicles have a duty to behave responsibly and safely, especially because they operate extremely large and dangerous equipment. However, sometimes even truck drivers are not responsible for accidents that occur on highways and other roadways. Rather, it may be the companies that employ them that are to blame for dangerous accidents. In many cases, trucking company negligence, like failing to properly maintain trucks, can lead to serious vehicle accidents, involving not only truck drivers, but other drivers on the road as well. In circumstances such as this, victims of trucking company negligence may actually be eligible to receive financial compensation in the event of such an accident.
