The Weight Of Trucks Leave Little Room For Error

Because of the size and mass of 18-wheelers, even the slightest breakdown in truck maintenance can have disastrous effects. Inadequate maintenance in large commercial trucks can lead to:

  • Defective brakes
  • Defective steering systems
  • Inadequate underride protection
  • Transmission failure
  • Tire blowouts

While federal regulations regulate the maintenance and operation of semi trucks, trucking companies cut corners to increase profits. This is a dangerous practice that risks the lives of truck drivers and everyone else on the road. All too often, faulty truck maintenance leads to serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and even wrongful death.

Our attorneys are well versed in the regulations regarding truck maintenance and will work to help you pursue maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered.
