If you live in California or anywhere in the U.S., you’ve probably heard countless radio ads from trucking companies looking to hire new drivers. There are currently more than 3.5 million truck drivers employed in the U.S. trucking industry. And while that may seem like a lot, the number of truck drivers in our nation is dramatically less than the current demand.
But someone has got to carry all those numerous tons of cargo from one state to another, right?
That’s why trucking companies end up hiring truck drivers with limited driving experience, putting millions of lives of car drivers, bicycle and motorcycle riders and pedestrians in danger every day. In fact, a recent study found that truck drivers with less than five years of experience are 41% more likely to cause a truck accident.
Is there anything you can do to punish a trucking company for hiring truck drivers with limited experience, especially if you were involved in a truck accident with one such unexperienced truck driver?
Unfortunately, there are no federal or state laws in California that would make it illegal to hire unexperienced truck drivers even despite the rather disturbing statistics of truck accidents involving unexperienced truck drivers. However, dealing with an unexperienced truck driver usually makes it easier to win a truck accident claim and obtain the maximum compensation for your damages and injuries.
