Truck Drivers Who are Not Qualified
Semi tractor-trailers are obviously much larger and heavier than any other vehicles on the road. When an improperly trained or careless truck driver gets behind the wheel, it can result in serious injuries or even death of others on the road.
At the Arizona law firm of Beale, Micheaels, Slack & Shughart, our attorneys demand training and driving records in order to hold trucking companies responsible for putting unqualified drivers on the highway. We get compensation for truck crash victims.

Why Are Unqualified Truck Drivers on the Road?
While most industries seek the best employees they can find – people they can count on to do a good job, the trucking industry is a little different as there aren’t enough employees to go around.
The trucking industry is one the largest employers in the United States. But turnover is high and so they have to always look for new drivers. There is a lot of competition among trucking companies for experienced drivers. Some companies will say that they have to hire inexperienced drivers as they have no other choice. But when the inexperience of a truck driver causes an accident with serious injuries, the employer must be held responsible.
While we understand the difficulties trucking companies sometimes have finding experienced employees, this cannot be used as an excuse for accidents that cause serious injuries and wrongful death of innocent victims on the roadway.
Truck drivers in charge of operating a huge semi tractor-trailer must have certain documented training, and must have a record of driving in a safe manner. When they do not and an accident ensues, the lawyers at Beale, Micheaels, Slack & Shughart will hold their employers accountable.
