When is JB Hunt Transport Responsible for my Injuries?

Under personal injury law, JB Hunt will be responsible for your damages by showing that the company is either directly or vicariously liable for the injuries you have suffered. JB Hunt is directly responsible for your injuries when its actions caused the accident.

As a motor carrier, JB Hunt has special rules it must follow. These special rules are designed to reduce the number of truck accidents on our roadways and protect our communities from preventable harm. When a trucking company fails to follow these special rules, innocent people are hurt.

For example, trucking companies have a duty to train company drivers on emergency stopping guidelines. Under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, a truck driver that stops on the side of a roadway must place warning devices as soon as possible and in no event more than 10 minutes of stopping to alert passing motorists of the truck’s presence. Failure to place these warning devices increases the likelihood of rear-end collisions with the stopped truck.

If an accident with a stopped truck was caused because JB Hunt did not train its drivers on this rule or provide its drivers with the equipment to comply with this rule, a claim could be brought against JB Hunt to hold the company directly responsible for the crash. This is just one of many cases where JB Hunt can be held directly responsible for a truck wreck.

Alternatively, JB Hunt may be held vicariously liable for your damages. Under vicarious liability principles, JB Hunt may be held financially liable for the mistakes of a third party. This typically occurs when one of JB Hunt’s drivers causes an accident. Employers are responsible for the negligent conduct of their employees taken during the course and scope of their employment. For instance, if an on-duty JB Hunt employee runs a red light and crashes into another motorist, a claim for vicarious liability can be brought against JB Hunt for the negligent conduct of its driver.

What Damages Can I Recover from JB Hunt Following a Truck Crash?

Once it has been proven that JB Hunt is either directly or vicariously liable for the truck accident, you are entitled to recovery for all damages resulting from the crash. The Department of Transportation requires JB Hunt to maintain liability insurance to cover the cost of damages suffered in a truck accident. According to the SAFER website, JB Hunt has reported $2,500,000 in coverage. However, given the size of JB Hunt, this is likely only one of many insurance policies available to an injured motorist. Additionally, if JB Hunt does not have insurance to cover the full extent of damages, the corporation would be responsible for the difference.
