A truck is not safe unless it is in proper working order. Failure to inspect, repair and maintain a commercial truck can lead to accidents, injuries and deaths. The attorneys at the Daly & Campbell Law Firm represent clients who have been injured because a semi tractor trailer, or other large truck was not properly maintained.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSR) requires vehicle owners to perform regular inspections, repairs and maintenance. They must also retain records of these activities for one year, or for six months after the selling, or otherwise disposing of the truck. If truck owners fail to comply with these regulations, we will hold them accountable.
Like all businesses, the trucking industry is a numbers game. Trucking companies make more money when they spend less on truck maintenance and repair. It can be very tempting for truck owners to try to delay certain types of maintenance. For example, truck owners may try to squeeze more mileage out of brakes and tires. This type of penny pinching can be extremely costly to the victims of a truck accident.
Compensation for Clients, Safer Roads for All
Our law firm’s primary goal is to secure full compensation for our clients. We also seek to show owners of large commercial trucks that negligence is ultimately very costly. Large verdicts and settlements in truck accident claims can encourage trucking companies to comply with safety standards, and thereby make roads and highways safer for everyone.
If you were injured in a truck accident, we will determine whether inadequate truck maintenance cause or contributed to the accident. If so, we will seek fair compensation for the full extent of your losses.
