Poorly Maintained Trucks - Our Detroit Attorneys Will Hold the Negligent Companies Accountable
A commercial truck may travel well over 100,000 miles in a year. Our truck accident lawyers in Detroit know that these big rigs experience extreme wear and tear. Trucking companies are legally responsible for performing routine safety inspections, scheduled maintenance and addressing any known safety issues - and properly documenting problems. Our attorneys at Fraser & Souweidane know that when a trucking company fails to properly maintain its vehicles, truck accidents can happen. Injuries can be catastrophic and crash victims could be left with significant physical, emotional and financial losses. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a truck accident, call (866) 465-9095 for a free consultation. You may be entitled to compensation.
Accidents caused by poorly maintained trucks can happen anywhere and anytime, leaving drivers, motorcyclists, passengers and pedestrians in immediate danger. Safety equipment such as brakes can fail instantly, causing a serious rear-end accident or traffic pileup. Defective tires could blowout on a highway, causing a serious rollover accident that leaves the occupants of multiple passenger vehicles with catastrophic injuries. Trucks that are sent on the road with poor steering or other mechanical problems could cause catastrophic accidents.
Trucking companies are legally required to keep maintenance records. In many 18-wheeler crashes in the greater Detroit area, attorneys often determine that trucking companies failed to keep adequate maintenance records. In some cases, companies may even falsify their logs to cover up known maintenance problems.
