Problems With Truck Maintenance Lead to Crashes

Problems With Truck Maintenance Lead to Crashes

Accidents involving tractor-trailers are a very real risk for all motorists traveling the roadways. These crashes are especially dangerous due to the large size of these vehicles. Often, the other vehicles involved in the crash face significant property damage, and the drivers and their passengers may suffer catastrophic injuries—even some that may lead to death. Unfortunately, despite federal laws that dictate how these trucks should be maintained, improper maintenance is a frequent factor in these accidents.

Six Examples of Improper Maintenance on Large Trucks

What is an example of improper maintenance on a large truck? The following are six ways that a truck may be improperly maintained, leading to an accident causing injuries and property damage:

  1. The brakes on the truck fail
  2. The tires on the truck shred
  3. Blind spot mirrors are not properly installed
  4. The taillights on the truck are broken
  5. The truck is missing proper reflective tape
  6. The fifth wheel couplings are defective

When a truck is not properly maintained, the trucking company and the vehicle’s operator may potentially be held liable for injuries and property damage that occur as a result of any subsequent crash. Victims involved in the accident may incur expensive medical bills, lost income due to an inability to return to work, and significant pain and suffering. These victims may be entitled to compensation for their losses.
