Improper Truck Maintenance

Improper Truck Maintenance

Vehicle owners are responsible for ensuring that their cars are in proper working order so that they do not unnecessarily endanger the other motorists and pedestrians whom they encounter. The annual inspections required by state law are intended to catch serious problems before they cause accidents, and for most drivers this is sufficient.

But commercial trucks are subjected to an incredible amount of wear and tear in the course of business use. They must be frequently and carefully inspected and repaired. The failure to properly maintain a truck can lead to serious crashes and severe injury.

As the victim of a truck accident caused by an unsafe commercial vehicle, you may be entitled to file a legal action seeking financial compensation above and beyond that which is available through an insurance settlement.

The Dangers of Negligent Maintenance

Some of the difficulties that may arise from an improperly maintained truck may include:

  • Brake failures
  • Tire blowouts
  • Burned out brake lights

There are many different systems and moving parts that must function properly for an automobile to be safe and the compromise of any one of these could potentially cause an accident. As part of a trucking company’s protocols, and a driver’s individual responsibility, there should be an ongoing effort to stay ahead of potential maintenance issues. The stakes are too high if problems are missed.
