How is a trucking company generally held responsible for one’s injuries?


A trucking company is responsible for the injuries that their driver caused under a theory of vicarious liability. They employ the driver and under the law, they are held as responsible for the injuries as the driver. The trucking company can also be under a theory of punitive damages if they knew that the driver was unfit to operate the vehicle and had prior notice that this was a bad driver who shouldn’t be on the road.
