Improper Truck Maintenance
Missouri Truck Accidents Caused By Improper Maintenance
St. Louis and Kansas City Truck Safety Lawyers
Semi trucks and other commercial vehicles need to be properly and frequently maintained in order to keep them safe. The failure to maintain these vehicles can often result in truck accidents, many of which have serious and fatal consequences for others on the road. It is the responsibility of the trucking company, the maintenance contractor, the driver or all three to properly maintain semi trucks, and the failure to do so may be considered negligence.
At Brown & Crouppen, our Missouri truck accident attorneys provide experienced representation for people who have been injured in 18-wheeler accidents. We know how to recognize and understand inadequate or negligent maintenance procedures. Our firm can also obtain all federal and state records, as well as company documents and records that trucking companies and drivers are required to maintain.
Did you know? The cab, trailer, hydraulic brakes, air brakes and tires on semi trucks must all be inspected on a regular basis in order to ensure that they are working properly.
