Failure to Properly Maintain a Semi-Truck

Representation in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx

Trucks cover thousands of miles on highways throughout the country each year. Because they traverse such long distances on such a frequent basis, it is essential that they receive regular and thorough maintenance to ensure that they remain in good, safe working order.

Failing to properly maintain a truck could have disastrous consequences and could place liability squarely on the shoulders of the person or entity in charge of maintaining the truck.

Common Truck Maintenance Failures

Truck parts see significant wear and tear due to constant use. Failing to inspect and repair the various parts of a truck can greatly increase the risk that something will go wrong with the truck while it is in motion, causing the driver to lose control and crash.

Maintenance-related truck accidents are commonly caused by:

  • Brake failure
  • Tire blowouts
  • Engine problems
  • Defective parts
  • Power steering failure

State and federal regulations require regular commercial truck inspections and proper documentation of maintenance and repairs before a truck is allowed to hit the road for a job.

When this maintenance is overlooked, or when shoddy repairs fail to adequately fix a problem, an unsafe truck may be allowed to endanger other motorists. Because of the immense size and weight of trucks, the unfortunate result is often catastrophic injury to surrounding drivers.
