Trucks must be properly and frequently maintained for safe, optimal performance.
If you were injured in an accident with a large truck that was due to improperly maintained brakes or tires, you may seek compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost income, medical expenses and property damage. Attorney Paul VanDerwerken offers a free case evaluation to review your legal options.
Tire blowouts occur for several reasons:
The driver must always be aware of the condition of the lights on his or her truck. There are many types of lights:
Lights are obviously of great importance because visibility reduces accidents and lets other motorists become aware of the large truck’s location and size. For those instances when truck lights are not working or when they burn out, trucks should carry replacement lights and the tools that are needed to install them.
If an accident occurs due to faulty brakes, tires or lights on commercial trucks, the harmed party has the right to seek compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, property damage and more. Negligence exists when the truck driver or maintenance crew does not properly maintain the truck, resulting in crashes, injuries and/or property damage.
