What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Failure to Inspect Trucks

Commercial trucks undergo a significant amount of wear and tear on the road. As a result, they must be inspected at regular intervals for any damage that may be accumulating. When truck drivers or the companies that employ them fail to thoroughly inspect and repair their vehicles, faulty trucks can cause disastrous motor vehicle accidents.

If you or a member of your family has been harmed by a negligently maintained semi truck, you could have grounds for a legal claim against the party responsible. The Jacksonville truck accident lawyers of the Law Offices of Donald Guthrie will fight to make sure your legal rights are protected. Call our offices today at 904-296-1088.

Consequences of Poor Truck Maintenance

Inspecting and repairing trucks is not only an important safety step; freight companies and drivers are required to do so under federal law. When they neglect their professional and legal responsibilities, the consequences can include:

  • Brake failures due to worn or damaged braking systems
  • Engine failures due to lack of engine fluids or other preventable problems
  • Poorly secured cargo that can shift or fall off the vehicle
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake light or headlight failures

When errors like these are caused by a failure to inspect and repair commercial trucks, drivers or the companies they work for can be held legally responsible. Our Jacksonville negligent truck inspection lawyers will work diligently to construct and pursue your legal case.
