As there are more and more trucking companies, some of the drivers are not trained as well as they should be.
Fort Smith, AR (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
In response to the increasing amount of trucking accidents, the Law Offices of Craig L. Cook and Associates has now begun to represent plaintiffs who may have been injured as the result of trucking company negligence, as of October 1.
According to the Federal Motor carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the number of trucking accidents has increased by 20% over the past 20 years. In 2002, there were 4,897 individuals who died, and 130,000 people were injured in automobile accidents involving large trucks.
Even though these large trucking accidents are only responsible for 3% of injury-causing automobile accidents, these types of incidents more often than not cause significantly more harm than the average accident because of trucks' sizes and weights.
"As there are more and more trucking companies, some of the drivers are not trained as well as they should be," explains Nikki L. Jordan, Advertising Coordinator for The Law Offices of Craig L. Cook and Associates.
"There are also more trucks on the road," Jordan adds. With less professional training and development, more trucking companies being founded, and more truckers on the road, there will naturally be more accidents. It's up to these trucking companies to properly and thoroughly vet, train, and develop their truck drivers. Doing any less is negligence on their part.
Now, the Law Offices of Craig L. Cook and Associates is going to put these negligent, trucking companies to task and hold them accountable for their poor decisions by offering to represent any and all of the people whom these trucking companies may have possibly hurt.
The Law Offices of Craig L. Cook and Associates comes prepared, ready to take on the negligence of these trucking companies with, as Jordan notes, "five outstanding attorneys [who] provide our Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma neighbors with exceptional, customized legal service."
