Holding Three Way Logistics Liable for a Trucking Crash
Like all motor carriers, Three Way Logistics must adhere to all state and federal rules and regulations applicable to the trucking industry. This includes all rules promulgated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration found in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Under these special rules applicable to motor carriers, Three Way Logistics is responsible for hiring safe drivers, training its drivers in safe driving practices, and keeping its fleet of trucks in a safe operating condition. If these rules are not followed, and an accident occurs, Three Way Logistics may be held directly responsible for the injuries and harm caused in the wreck. Additionally, even if these rules were followed, Three Way Logistics may be vicariously liable under common law or statutory theory of vicarious liability if the truck wreck was caused by the wrongful conduct of one of its drivers.
