Racine Failure to Maintain Vehicles Lawyers

Trucks endure wear and tear due to the long distances they travel and the frequent use they are put through. They require frequent maintenance not only to keep them running, but also functioning safely. When trucking companies fail to ensure that every part of a given vehicle is in good working order through proper maintenance, the truck runs the risk of malfunctioning and causing a wreck, which could injure other drivers on the road.

If you were injured because of a defective truck, you may be able to hold the trucking company accountable for their negligent maintenance and liable for your physical and emotional trauma.

Types of Negligent Maintenance

When trucks are not well maintained, they are likely to break down unexpectedly, which could lead to collisions and injuries that would have otherwise been avoidable. A few examples of careless maintenance and the hazards it could lead to include:

  • Leaving worn tires on the wheel, which could lead to blowouts
  • Not replacing old brake pads, which could lead to a brake failure and inability to stop the truck
  • Letting engine fluid levels drop, risking overheating and other hazards

When trucking companies practice negligent maintenance, other drivers are put at risk of injuries for which the company should be held accountable.
