I had two accidents while working for the same company in one year.
I have been trucking for two years and my first accident was at a customers terminal,it happened while i was backing up to the dock and ended up backing up to a small pick up that was the terminal managers car.
It made a basketball size dent on his right fender. I was not given a notice that my company would doc me for my next check of $1200 for the deductible. They say the damage was over $3000.
Second accident also was at a terminal and i must have not engaged brakes properly . Truck rolled while i was separating my doubles. I was not in truck to stop the truck and it rolled into an empty trailer. No damage to trailer only to my company truck.
Total damage they said was $11,000 and was fired without final paycheck of $600 . I was told that for insurance reasons they had to let me go.
Is this the final end to my trucking career?
