Inadequate Truck Maintenance

Getting into a serious accident with a semitruck is many drivers' worst nightmare. Any number of factors can contribute to a truck accident, including truck driver fatigue, substance abuse and distractions. A thorough investigation also often turns up mechanical issues with the truck.

Truck drivers and trucking companies are required by law to conduct basic maintenance and regular inspections on commercial vehicles. These requirements are designed to protect not only the safety of the truck driver, but also others on the road. Improper maintenance can lead to devastating accidents and injuries.

You Can Count On Me To Get To The Root Of The Accident

Were you or a loved one injured in a truck accident? It is critical to protect your rights at the outset. In the Williamson County area, contact me, personal injury lawyer Carl Knickerbocker. My practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of injury victims. My extensive experience in personal injury law gives me the legal knowledge and practical insight necessary for tackling complex truck accident cases.

As your advocate, I will invest the time and effort your case deserves. You can count on me to conduct a thorough investigation and gather valuable evidence on what may have contributed to the accident.

One of the first things I will look into is whether inadequate maintenance contributed to the accidents. Dangerous lapses commonly occur when the truck has:

  • Broken taillights, signal lights or headlights
  • Inadequate lighting on the front, sides or back of the truck
  • Brake failure due to defective or inadequate brakes
  • Defective or improperly filled tires
  • Inadequate or defective safety mechanism

Depending on the circumstances, multiple parties may be liable for the failure, including the truck driver, the trucking company and the manufacturer of the vehicle part or component. You can rely on me to pursue every party who is potentially responsible for the inadequate truck maintenance that led to the accident.
