Investigating Semi-Truck Maintenance
Truck drivers, truck owners, truck leasing companies, and others have a duty to make sure that their vehicles (big rigs, bucket trucks, or commercial trucks of any kind) are properly maintained and in safe working condition prior to placing the truck on the road. Failure to complete maintenance logs and routinely inspect the truck can result in an unsafe vehicle traveling at high speeds and causing a serious trucking accident.
When investigating the cause of your accident, our attorneys look at the following factors:
- Did the tractor-trailer have reflective tape visible to other drivers at night?
- Did the semi-truck have adequate lighting enabling other drivers to see the truck and allowing the driver to see other vehicles?
- Did under-inflated or defective tires result in a tire blowout?
- Did poor vehicle maintenance result in faulty brakes, worn tires, or defective hydraulics and cause an accident?
As experienced truck accident lawyers, we have the experience and resources to thoroughly investigate and analyze serious accidents. We take on the burden of meticulously investigating, preparing, and presenting your case so that you can focus on more important things in your life, including healing.
