Faulty Truck Maintenance
In any truck accident case, it is important to conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether or not faulty truck maintenance played a role in the accident. The trucking company will use their own investigators who will often rule out maintenance issues, but it is critical to have an unbiased opinion. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) places strict regulations of the maintenance of commercial trucks. Violations of FMCSA rules include:
- Faulty brakes
- Defective steering
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate underride protection
Our lawyers are well versed in the federal regulations governing truck maintenance and know how to find the facts in these cases. If we determine negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company was the result of your accident, we will help you pursue maximum compensation for your medical bills, wage loss and other hardships.
