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.
