Truck Company Failure to Train
Operating a semi truck is not an easy task; doing so safely requires long training courses as well as monitored trips prior to allowing a driver to go out alone. Having trained and competent truck drivers on the road is of extreme importance. But while most trucking companies have solid training requirements in place for their employees, there are many that bypass training or provide inadequate training in an attempt to save time and money.
When a trucking company fails to properly train its truck drivers, it may contribute to the serious injury or death of innocent individuals. This is why the Cincinnati truck company inadequate training lawyers of Stepleton Dugan, LLC are committed to prosecuting negligent truck drivers for their actions that have led to injury.

Training Requirements for Truck Drivers
In order for a truck driver to legally be allowed to be on the road, he or she must:
- Have the proper driver’s license for truck drivers
- Have completed a number of hours of training
- Participated in on-the-job training with his or her company
Any job that involves doing something that can potentially be very dangerous to the employee and others should require a substantial amount of training.
