It is important that all vehicles on the road are properly maintained. This is even more important with large commercial vehicles that are carrying significant loads. Improper truck maintenance can be extremely dangerous and can cause catastrophic accidents.
Trucking companies are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations to properly maintain their vehicles. When trucks are improperly maintained and an accident results, the company should be held accountable, and those injured should be fairly compensated.
