Phoenix Negligent Hiring And Supervision Attorneys
Trucking liability includes holding companies accountable for their responsibilities to place capable and safe drivers behind the wheels of their vehicles. These drivers must be properly trained and undergo thorough background checks to ensure that they are not a risk to other drivers and pedestrians on the road.
Unfortunately, drivers who are poorly trained and under-qualified, and who have a history of driving violations are responsible for hundreds of preventable accidents across the United States each year.
The Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team represents injured victims and their families who have suffered from devastating truck accidents in Arizona and throughout the Southwest. Trucking companies, brokers, supervisors and drivers may be held accountable for negligence.

Detail-Oriented, Results-Driven Attorneys
Our Phoenix-based negligent hiring and supervision lawyers perform comprehensive investigations for all truck accident cases we handle. In each investigation, we uncover details about the truck driver’s criminal history, driving infractions and violations, previous accidents, history of drug and alcohol use, previous employment violations, and other past problems that could create danger on the road — all things trucking companies are required to check before hiring any employee who will be driving any of their rigs.
Trucking companies can be held accountable for negligence in hiring and supervision, including for continuing to employ a driver who repeatedly causes problems, has been involved in accidents where negligence is involved or has issues with maintaining accurate driving logs. This is often referred to as “negligent retention.”
Trucking companies must also accurately track the routes and loads each driver is taking on. They must ensure that each driver is properly trained for each task required of him or her on the road and when loading and securing cargo.
In addition to the driver’s responsibility to maintain his or her commercial driver’s license (CDL), he or she must have various endorsements to be allowed to operate certain trucks or pack, load and move certain loads. Without the proper training, the driver creates a grave risk to others on the highway.
