The Importance of Proper Maintenance

Commercial trucks transport heavy loads of cargo for thousands of miles. Because they travel so much, they need to be maintained regularly. Failure to perform routine maintenance could have devastating consequences.

Proper maintenance can help prevent:

  • Worn brakes
  • Corroded steering components
  • Inadequate tire tread
  • Low fluid levels
  • Broken parts

Worn brakes, lack of tire tread, and broken steering mechanisms could cause a serious accident. Due to the number of miles commercial trucks travel each month, they need to be maintained on a regular basis.

Who Is Responsible for Maintaining Commercial Trucks?

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), trucking companies and truck drivers are responsible to maintain commercial vehicles. In some cases, trucking companies will hire third-party maintenance crews to keep the commercial trucks in good working condition.

Truck drivers must inspect their vehicle before and after each trip. If they negligently fail to do so, they may be held responsible for an accident. By repairing, inspecting, and maintaining commercial trucks regularly, trucking companies and drivers can help prevent an accident.

A diligent investigation is necessary to determine the cause of a commercial truck crash. Our legal team will gather evidence, such as trucking company records, maintenance reports, witness statements, police reports, pictures or videos of the accident, and other documentation, to determine who is liable. From start to finish, our Greenville truck accident lawyers will help you file a claim and seek financial relief.
