Does poor maintenance lead to truck accidents?

| Mar 11, 2021 | Uncategorized |

An incalculable number of trucks travel through the state of California without any problems. However, incidents of trucks involved in accidents do raise alarms. Truck collisions may lead to severe pileups capable of injuring many people. When distracted, fatigued, or drunk driving causes a truck to crash into a small car or pedestrian, the chances of a fatality may be enormous. Most people realize how dangerous truck accidents might be, but they might not be familiar with the risks associated with poor or negligent maintenance. When a trucking company doesn’t maintain a vehicle well, the company could find itself financially responsible for the resulting harm to other road users.

Poor maintenance and neglect

Many reasons could be behind the decision to neglect routine truck maintenance and repair. The consequences of such decisions could be fatal. Imagine if the wheels and tires on a tractor-trailer suffered from extreme neglect. Tires may suffer a blowout, or a wheel could come loose. Fragments from the wheel might hit pedestrians or occupants of other vehicles.

When a responsible party doesn’t address mechanical problems, claims of negligence may follow an injury. Sometimes, improper care might cause an accident.

Performance-related issues with the truck

Failure to stay on top of maintenance could lead to an accident when parts fail. If a truck can’t stop due to bad brakes, questions arise why the brakes did not undergo repairs. Brakes, wheels, tires, wiper blades, and other parts all require care.

Other issues may arise, including mishaps with poorly secured cargo. Were the components necessary to connect things in a state of disrepair? Once again, someone may ask why a truck reached a state of neglect.

Truck accidents that are caused by negligence can take many forms, and inadequate maintenance may sometimes be a cause. Persons who have been harmed by improperly-maintained trucks may want to meet with an attorney to discuss their legal options.
