Failure To Maintain

Failure to Maintain

Counsel from a Galveston Truck Accident Attorney

Thousands of truck accidents happen every year in Texas, often resulting in serious injuries or even death. These accidents may be caused by a variety of reasons, from speeding, lack of sleep, or improper vehicle maintenance. When an issue like failing to maintain a vehicle is the root of the accident, it can be frustrating and confusing. Why would a company skip over such an important and safety-minded step? Shouldn't truck drivers be held to stricter standards? Who will pay for you medical bills and other related costs?

Truck Maintenance Regulations

In order to protect a truck driver and other vehicles on the road, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has put regulations in place that dictate how frequent maintenance and inspection should occur and what type of parts must be regularly maintained.

According to FMCSA regulations, the following must be inspected:

  • Tires
  • Steering
  • All lights, signals, and reflectors
  • Vehicle breaks, including service brakes, trailer connections, etc.
  • Windshield wipers
  • Mirrors and horn

Unfortunately, many companies and truck drivers overlook this regulation in order to stay on the road and maximum efficiency. This can lead to devastating accidents and injuries, especially for those in smaller passenger vehicles. If a vehicle that was not properly maintained causes an accident, it can be proven that either the company or truck driver was negligent in their actions. You may be able to obtain damages for medical costs, lost wages, emotional and physical suffering, and more.
