货运公司疏忽委托

当卡车公司忽略屏幕,雇用,列车和/或监督商用机动车(CMV)的驾驶员时,该公司可能会对驾驶员的疏忽或其他可行行为引起的卡车事故伤害和死亡。这种直接责任通常基础的法律理论被称为疏忽委托。以简单的术语来说,疏忽委托是了解或疏忽的允许操作物品(如卡车或其他机动车辆)或从未认定的人(例如商业货车的活动)(例如商业货车的活动)。无能为力安全地使用物品或安全地参与活动。

疏忽委托的法律是基于侵权行为的重述(二)第308条,如下规定:

“如果演员知道或合理地知道这样的人打算或可能使用这件事或者可能会使用这件事或者可能会使用这件事或者可能会使用这件事或者可能会使用这件事或者可能会使用这件事或者可能会使用这件事或者可能会使用这项活动他自己在活动中以这种方式为他人创造了不合理的伤害风险。“

重述提供了几个例子来说明过失委托原则的正确应用,所有这些都涉及许可给一个不称职或没有经验的司机使用许可人拥有的汽车。这些例子包括一位车主允许一位据他所知从未开过车的14岁少年开他的车;允许车主认识的人醉酒驾驶自己的车;允许车主认识的有酒后驾车史的人驾驶他的车;并允许车主知道的人被吊销执照驾驶他的车。在每一种情况下,导致其他人受伤的事故发生时,借款人驾驶汽车。

In each of these examples, the owner of the car, who had control over the other person’s use of the car and who could have denied that person permission to use it, allowed the person to use it while knowing of circumstances that would make it likely that the person’s use of the car would endanger the safety of others. In other words, the owner negligently entrusted the use of his car to someone he knew or should have known was likely to operate it in an unsafe manner and negligently entrusted the incompetent driver with the activity of driving.

同样的,货运公司过失允许不合格或不称职的司机使用公司或旗下卡车,让这样一个司机驾驶一辆卡车被另一个可能拥有被认为有责任为公司的疏忽造成的损伤和死亡的委托与卡车司机的活动本身或驾驶一辆卡车。当卡车运输公司在筛选、雇用、培训和/或监督驾驶活动在公司控制下的卡车司机和/或驾驶由公司拥有或在公司控制下的商业机动车时,通常被发现从事了疏忽委托。因此,即使一个货运公司不拥有或控制卡车由一个员工,可以找到货运公司责任,疏忽下委托理论,对公司的疏忽造成的受伤和死亡授予许可一个雇员驾驶一辆卡车被另一个拥有或控制。此外,即使拥有卡车运输公司也参与了卡车司机的疏忽造成的事故也不雇佣司机,不过该公司可能被认为有责任为过失委托如果公司发现有司机的活动的控制事故发生。

Negligent entrustment can be demonstrated in such cases through evidence of a driver’s poor driving record, past accidents, history of safety violations, alcohol and drug use, and evidence that a trucking company failed to use proper care to acquire such records before hiring or dispatching a driver or that the company hired or dispatched a driver despite having acquired such records. Negligent entrustment can also be established in cases in which drivers have been adequately screened and hired but improperly trained and/or supervised. This can be shown through evidence of a company’s failure to follow FMCSR related to driver training, failure to institute yearly driver tests, failure to monitor driver performance, violations, and accidents, and failure to revoke driving privileges of drivers who violate regulations or are otherwise demonstrated to be incompetent.
