Faulty Maintenance Can Cause Serious Accidents
State and federal laws require trucking companies to maintain their trucks regularly. When they fail to meet these obligations, dangerous trucks take to the road and can cause serious accidents.

Who Is Responsible?
Faulty truck maintenance can be the result of negligent trucking companies or the drivers themselves. Both parties are responsible for maintaining the trucks and ensuring that they are safe for use. Unfortunately, they sometimes cut corners and put a truck on the road without performing an adequate inspection. This type of negligence can lead to:
- Faulty brakes
- Tire blowouts
- Transmission failure
- Steering failure
- Inadequate lighting/reflectors
- Inadequate underride protection
Eighteen-wheelers and other large trucks are difficult to drive when they are in perfect operating condition. When they are not properly maintained, drivers can have difficulty braking, turning and making the split-second decisions that are often necessary for safe travel. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling truck accident injury cases and are dedicated to helping you obtain the financial resources you need to make it through this difficult time.
