Commercial truck drivers are held to much higher standards than the average motorist. Commercial drivers must adhere to federal trucking regulations, not just the general state laws. Sometimes, truck drivers are compensated if their shipments arrive on time or early. Unfortunately, this scheme can mean that truck drivers are more concerned with bonuses than safety.

- Municipal Liability
- Negligent Hiring
- Training Practices
- Manufacturer of defective auto parts
- Shipping company
- Truck Loader
