Des Moines Negligent Hiring Attorneys
When stepping onto a bus, passengers expect the bus to be functional, the driver to be safe and professional, and the ride to take a reasonable amount of time as stated on the itinerary. However, serious accidents can occur when the service company fails to adequately train an inexperienced driver, or negligently hires or retains the driver.
Failure to perform due diligence on a job applicant leads to the hiring of individuals who are unfit to perform that job. This is especially dangerous if the position this person was hired for requires care for third parties. In the event of injuries or damages, the hiring company could be liable for compensating victims.
