Truck Maintenance Is the Responsibility of the Truck Company
Not every truck accident is the result of driver negligence. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates truck companies in all areas relating to scheduled preventive maintenance and repairs.
Truck maintenance is critical to highway safety. The FMCSA regulations read: Worn, failed or incorrectly adjusted components can cause or contribute to accidents. Preventive maintenance and periodic inspection procedures help to prevent failures from occurring while the vehicle is being operated. Such procedures also reduce reliance on the driver, who may have limited skill and knowledge for detecting vehicle deficiencies.
If a truck gets into an accident because of unsafe equipment or a mechanical problem, the owners, maintenance subcontractors and parts manufacturers may all be held liable for damages.
If you or a member of your family was injured in a truck accident caused by truck mechanical failure, you are entitled to seek full and fair compensation for your injuries, medical treatment, lost earnings and pain and suffering.
You may not be aware of the truck's mechanical failure; that's why it is important to talk to an experienced truck accident personal injury law firm as soon as possible. Time is important. Truck companies cover their tracks by destroying and altering maintenance schedules and records. Do not give them time.
