Failure to Maintain a Safe Vehicle

If you have been injured in a trucking related accident it may be difficult to determine who is at fault, the driver or the trucking company. To determine who is at fault one must first discover the cause of the accident. In many cases a failure to properly maintain the vehicle, or negligent maintenance, is the cause. Having the skill and experience of a truck accident lawyer from our firm to investigate and determine the cause of the accident can make a profound difference in the favorable outcome of your case.

Trucker Maintenance Requirements

A trucking company and/or the driver have certain requirements that they by law must meet to maintain a safe vehicle. Some of these maintenance requirements are:

  • Properly maintained brakes and tires
  • Properly installed and working lights, including brake lights, turning indicators, back up lights and reflectors.
  • Properly maintained windshield wipers

When investigating the cause of an accident, a knowledgeable attorney knows that there are several types of records and evidence that should be examined and analyzed. These would include the driver's vehicle inspection log, daily vehicle condition report as well as any and all maintenance records. Once a determination has been made concerning the cause of the accident, the decision as to who needs to be held liable may become apparent.
