Improper Truck Maintenance

Our Ohio Truck Accident Lawyers Will Determine whether an Accident was Caused by Improper Truck Maintenace

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.

For more than 38 years, our team has been helping those injured in accidents, and we are ready to help you.

With our comprehensive knowledge, experience and unrelenting advocacy, we are prepared to undertake trucking accident cases that have resulted from:

  • Brake failure
  • Tire failure
    • Improper retreads or poor tire inspection
  • Defective or missing mirrors
  • Defective or missing lights or reflectors
  • Malfunctioning brakes and safety systems
  • Failure to maintain steering and electronic systems
  • Defective belts and hoses
  • Improperly maintained Parking brakes
  • Broken coupling devices
  • Inadequate emergency equipment

We will rigorously investigate to determine what caused the crash and build a rock-solid case to obtain the compensation you deserve. Trucking insurance companies seek to protect their interests immediately following an accident. Someone needs to protect yours. We will provide that protection to you and your family.
