Equipment Failure, Defective Tires, Trucking Inspection

Trucking maintenance is absolutely essential to safety. When a trucking company or maintenance service fails to perform truck inspections and maintenance on a regular basis, the truck and all other vehicles on the road with that truck could be at risk.

Truck Accident Lawyers

The personal injury attorneys at Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis know the importance of trucking maintenance. We review the maintenance logs for the truck and make sure that the logs are accurate and complete when we investigate a truck accident.

  • When a truck’s brakes fail or tires blow out, the problem could be the result of negligent maintenance. Were the brakes checked and serviced appropriately? Were retread tires put on the front axle? Had the tires been checked for defects or wear?
  • Regular maintenance — oil changes, tire replacement, system and equipment checks, and light replacements are necessary to assure that the truck is safe.
  • Did all reported problems with the truck receive proper attention? Or did the trucking company knowingly allow an unsafe truck on the road?

Deadlines are no excuse for negligent maintenance.

Trucking companies too often choose meeting a deadline or saving money over careful maintenance. That choice can lead to serious injuries or wrongful death. Contact us for a consultation. There is no charge for a case evaluation. We represent clients in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, and the surrounding region.
