Dayton Freight Lines is a nationwide trucking company based out of Dayton, Ohio. The company operates more than 2,000 tractors pulling over 5,000 trailers. The company’s operations span over 70 service centers. Like all trucking companies, Dayton Freight Lines must take reasonable steps to ensure its drivers operate company trucks safely. Unfortunately, safe operating principles are not always adhered to, and company drivers have been involved in numerous truck crashes over the last several years, resulting in multiple injuries and fatalities.

If you or a family member were injured or killed in a truck accident with a Dayton Freight Lines truck or driver, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you have suffered. Like all wrongdoers, Dayton Freight is responsible for injuries and death caused by its actions and, in some instances, the actions of its drivers.

When Can Dayton Freight Lines be Held Liable for a Truck Accident I Was Injured in?

Injured motorists can recover legal damages when they are injured by a wrongdoer’s conduct. Corporations act through their employees. If an employee of a corporation injures someone, the corporation may be held liable for the damages resulting from the employee’s negligent conduct. Dayton Freight Lines may be responsible for the injuries and damages you suffered when the injury-causing crash resulted from Dayton Freight Line’s negligence or the negligence of a company driver.

In truck accident cases, the trucking company is often found negligent when the company fails to follow the rules applicable to commercial trucking companies. These rules are found in state law and in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These rules are designed to protect innocent motorists from the increased risks of harm posed by large commercial trucks. When a company does not follow these rules and chooses not to train its drivers to follow these rules, serious accidents occur. A trucking company can be held directly responsible for the injuries and damages suffered in such an accident.

Additionally, a trucking company that does all it can to follow and train its drivers on the safety rules applicable to commercial trucking companies can still be held vicariously liable for injuries and damages caused by one of its driver’s negligent mistakes. For instance, if one of Dayton Freight’s drivers causes an accident while distracted on a cell phone, Dayton Freight may be responsible for the damages suffered by the motorist injured by the employee’s mistake. This is known as vicarious liability.

Our trained truck accident attorneys have investigated hundreds of truck accidents across the nation and have helped countless clients recover fair compensation under the law.

Does Dayton Freight Lines Have to Pay for the Damages I Suffered in a Truck Crash?

If Dayton Freight Lines is found directly or vicariously liable for the accident you were injured in, then the company is responsible for compensating you for the damages you have suffered. Our trained truck accident lawyers will help you identify and prove all damages suffered in the wreck. This is a skill that requires training and experience. Our clients receive maximum compensation under the law because we take the time to truly understand how their injuries impacted their lives.

Like all motor carriers, Dayton Freight Lines is required to carry commercial liability insurance to cover your damages. According to the SAFER website, Dayton Freight Lines maintains $750,000 in liability insurance on file. This is likely only one of many insurance policies the company maintains to protect itself in the event it is found liable for an accident that has resulted in serious injuries or death.

Over the last twenty-four months, trucks and drivers operating under Dayton Fright Lines authority were involved in 128 truck crashes, resulting in four fatalities and 33 injuries. While liability for these crashes is not provided, many of these accidents undoubtedly resulted in lawsuits brought on behalf of injured motorists. As such, Dayton Freight Lines is highly experienced in truck accident litigation and works hard to escape liability and minimize the recovery of motorists injured in wrecks involving company drivers.
