Commercial Truck Maintenance and Auto Accidents

Frequent and consistent maintenance of trucking equipment is essential for the safety of all drivers on the road. A trucker’s miles quickly add up, and the wear and tear on an eighteen-wheeler is significantly greater than the average motor vehicle. Something as seemingly minor as a defective windshield wiper or broken side view mirror can mean the difference between a truck driver stopping safely or causing a catastrophic pile up.

Negligent truck maintenance is a problem that the trucking industry must be held accountable for. If you are involved in an accident with a large truck, you need a team of experienced attorneys to uncover maintenance records and find out where the driver or trucking company went wrong.

Routine Truck Maintenance Requirements

The Department of Transportation requires trucking companies to perform frequent maintenance on their equipment. Commercial truck drivers are personally responsible for pre-trip inspections and walk-around inspections every time they pull off the road. Routine maintenance is intended to prevent the following types of malfunction:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Tire tread separation or bald tires
  • Insecure, shifting, or falling cargo loads
  • Excessive cargo weight
  • Worn brakes
  • Broken rearview and side view mirrors
  • Broken hydraulic hoses
  • Broken windshield wipers
  • Insecure trailer hitch, or hitch slippage
  • Burned out headlights, taillights or turn signals
  • Broken defroster
  • Broken mud flaps
  • Illegally or improperly transported hazardous materials

Proving Negligence in a Truck Maintenance Accident

A thorough examination is required to determine fault in a trucking accident caused maintenance failures. Liability in negligent truck maintenance accidents can be difficult to assign. A truck driver may be at fault for not meeting regulations and having the semi serviced on time. Or the owner of the truck, owner of the trailer, or trucking company may have ignored their responsibilities to save time and costs. Whatever the source of the maintenance failure, there is no excuse for putting others’ lives on the line. Accident victims can win damages by uncovering neglected repairs, falsified inspection reports, maintenance violations, and failure to comply with trucking regulations.
