What’s the problem?
Big rig tractor trailers travel tens of thousands of miles each year in this country. As a result, these 18 wheelers require frequent inspection, maintenance, and repair. Without adequate maintenance and repair, a big rig may not be able to avoid slamming into the vehicle in front of it, a wheel end may disengage from an axle, or an approaching car may not see the truck’s tail or side lights until it’s too late.
Trucking companies maintain maintenance and repair records on their big rigs, and a review of these records may reveal that required inspection or maintenance work was not done in accordance with accepted practice within the trucking industry. The attorneys at Schmidt & Clark, LLP know how to discover whether a negligent failure to properly inspect, maintain, or repair a truck may have contributed to cause tractor trailer accidents and injuries.
Failure on the part of a trucking company and / or its driver to preform required and necessary maintenance of its trucking equipment can cause serious injury and even death to other motorists on highways and roads. The truck accident attorneys at Schmidt & Clark, LLP know the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Regulations governing commercial truck inspection, repair, and maintenance. Our truck accident attorneys have extensive experience gathering and interpreting trucking company records and documents that may reveal negligence in the proper inspection, maintenance, and repair of trucks and associated equipment.
