Truck Maintenance Issues
For many years, the trucking accident personal injury lawyers at The Doan
Law Firm have provided our clients the maximum amount of compensation
due to trucking accidents caused by truck driver and trucking company
negligence regarding the vehicle’s maintenance.
Our firm has the experience in all types of wrongful death and personal
injury claims as they relate to passenger vehicle and trucking accident/trucking
company negligence regarding the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s
(FMSCA) truck maintenance regulations, including but not limited to:
- Truck tire blowouts;
- Tractor trailer decoupling;
- Load violations;
- Overloaded trailers;
- Truck brake failures;
- Inadequate or non-working reflectors and lights
If either you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident due
to truck maintenance issues, the trucking accident personal injury lawyers
at The Doan Law Firm will provide you with the compassion, experience
and resources you need to pursue your rightful compensation
Our firm provides a free no obligation initial consultation in order for
you not only to have your most pressing questions answered in a no pressure
situation, but also to discover the merits of your case as well as your
best path forward.
If you desire our services, we’ll take your case on a contingency
basis, meaning that you don’t pay any legal costs upfront or throughout
the duration of your case. Instead, we earn our fee only after obtaining
a successful outcome on your trucking claim, through a small percentage
of the settlement we win on your behalf.
In other words, if we fail to obtain a successful outcome on your trucking
claim, you’ll never owe us a dime.
Trucking Companies Are Responsible For Truck Maintenance
Performing regular maintenance on semi-trucks is a critical necessity when
they’re driving on the nation’s highways. Compliant companies
perform maintenance as a preventative measure and follow the procedures
for inspections to help prevent the occurrence of failures while the truck
is in operation. These procedures also help reduce the company’s
reliance on the truck driver, as the drivers themselves may know little
about the detection of deficiencies within their vehicle. In other words,
just because someone can drive a truck safely doesn’t mean they
know how to maintain a truck safely. Similarly, just because you know
how to operate your car doesn’t mean you know how to change your
alternator. Thus, the responsibility for truck maintenance is placed upon
the trucking companies.
When a semi-truck gets into an accident due to mechanical problems or unsafe
equipment, there are many different parties that can be held liable for
damages. Some, a combination of, or all of the following can be held liable
- Parts manufacturers;
- The owners;
- Maintenance subcontractors
If either you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident that’s
been caused due to a maintenance/mechanical issue of a semi-truck you’re
entitled to seek fair and full compensation for your:
- Lost earnings past and future;
- Medical treatment;
- Pain and suffering;
- Other damages relating to your trucking claim
The simple fact is that you may not be aware that the accident happened
due to a mechanical failure. That’s why it’s essential that
you speak with a trucking accident personal injury firm that’s experienced
in these types of claims and do so as soon as possible after the incident.
Time is of the essence.
There are many trucking companies that will attempt to cover their tracks by:
- Making alterations to their maintenance schedules;
- Destroying maintenance schedules;
- Otherwise covering their tracks to avoid our investigators;
Don’t allow the trucking companies to get away with this. Allow our
investigators and our experienced personal injury lawyers to do their
jobs in order to get you the compensation you and your family deserve.
