Inadequate truck maintenance and accidents

From fatigue to intoxication, large truck crashes happen for all sorts of reasons. Some factors, however, may not always receive as much attention even though they are a serious concern when it comes to traffic accidents. For example, inadequate truck maintenance is a major problem and has been linked to many fatal accidents over the years. In Pennsylvania, and states across the country, some trucking companies fail to inspect and maintain their trucks properly, and those responsible for a crash that causes the loss of life or debilitating injuries should be held accountable for innocent people whose lives have been turned upside down.

Inadequate truck maintenance takes many forms and can lead to all sorts of problems on the road. For example, a truck driver's brakes may fail while they are behind the wheel, endangering the safety of those riding in other vehicles and truck drivers as well. Many other examples of inadequate truck maintenance can be extremely dangerous on the roadway, such as deficient windshield wipers, tires that need to be replaced, problems with rearview mirrors and so on.

Some trucking companies may push off maintenance in an attempt to cut costs, while others may be facing financial problems or procrastinating. Either way, inadequate truck maintenance is unacceptable and with such massive vehicles, this remains a serious threat to the safety of everyone on the road. Those who have been hurt or have lost someone they love in an accident caused by inadequate truck maintenance should examine their legal options.
