Improper Truck Maintenance

Truck Accident Attorneys in Raleigh, NC

Did you know that state and federal trucking regulations mandate the routine inspection and maintenance of commercial vehicles? These regulations are enforced to make sure that these large, heavy vehicles are functioning properly and do not present an unnecessary hazard on our roadways. Some truck owners, drivers, or trucking companies do not fully follow such regulations, however, and this places every motorist, pedestrian, and bicyclist at risk.

Edwards Kirby is committed to the quality representation of individuals and families across North Carolina who have had their lives turned upside down by trucking accidents. Our Raleigh truck accident attorneys understand the traumatic nature of collisions involving semi-trucks and 18-wheelers, and we also have a true understanding of trucking regulations as they affect truck maintenance, inspections, and repairs. We use this knowledge to determine exactly what caused a client’s accident, to prove fault, and to pursue fair financial compensation from the at-fault party or parties.

Failure to Maintain a Commercial Vehicle

Maintenance and inspection logs and a thorough inspection of all truck parts can reveal whether a semi-truck, flatbed, tanker, or other large truck was properly maintained prior to a collision. When our Raleigh truck accident lawyers take on a case of this kind, we know what to look for and how to prove fault.

Inadequate maintenance of any of the following truck parts can lead to a serious collision:

  • Tires
  • Couplings or hitches
  • Straps and tie downs
  • Engines
  • Hydraulics
  • Brakes
  • Side and rearview mirrors
  • Headlights, taillights, and brake lights

Truck accident cases are complex and typically involve going up against a company that has considerable resources and a team of attorneys to counteract personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits. Fortunately, we have resources of our own and over 175 years of collective legal experience to draw upon when we take on trucking accident lawsuits. We take every necessary step to identify inadequate maintenance or other types of negligence or wrongdoing.
