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:
While federal regulations regulate the maintenance and operation of semi trucks, trucking companies cut corners to increase profits.

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.
The struggles and losses you may sustain if you are involved in a Boston truck accident can be severe. Again, trucks are large vehicles with the potential to cause significant harm. If you are involved in a truck collision, your injuries may require very costly medical treatment that you are not prepared to pay for. There is also a high probability that your injuries will impact your ability to work and earn a living. In addition to your economic losses, you could also struggle with pain and other such non-economic consequences of a major motor vehicle accident.
You deserve to be compensated properly for such losses if your accident happened because a trucking company was negligent. You can seek the compensation to which you may be entitled by filing an insurance claim or filing a lawsuit if the trucking company’s insurer will not offer a proper settlement.
It is very important to have representation from a qualified Boston trucking accident attorney when seeking the compensation for which you may be eligible. This is particularly true in instances when a truck accident resulted from improper maintenance.
Whenever preparing a case against a trucking company, one of the most important first steps involves conducting a thorough investigation into the accident. This is key to gathering evidence showing that a trucking accident was genuinely caused by negligence.
Some instances of negligence are relatively easy to prove. For example, if there is video evidence or other such hard evidence indicating a trucker was driving unsafely at the time of an accident, it typically won’t be very difficult for a lawyer to show that a victim deserves compensation.
That’s not always the case when faulty truck maintenance causes accidents. A lawyer who specializes in these types of cases will have the experience and resources necessary to thoroughly gather evidence showing an accident occurred because a trucking company did not adhere to applicable maintenance policies and regulations. Along with helping you present this evidence, they will also negotiate aggressively on your behalf, improving your chances of arriving at a fair settlement or being awarded damages in court.
We work on a contingency fee basis on all personal injury cases, including those involving faulty truck maintenance. This means that you pay nothing if we don’t win compensation for you and that all attorney time is at no charge, including your initial consultation.
We are available for day, evening, and weekend appointments.
