Lack of Maintenance

Lack of Maintenance in Commercial Trucks

Fighting for the Fair Compensation of Clients throughout San Francisco

While plenty of commercial trucking accidents are caused because a driver failed to exercise reasonable caution and care, it is not always the case. When a trucking company focuses its priorities on profits rather than quality, their assets can begin to decline. This can take the form of a lack of maintenance that can have disastrous consequences on other drivers on the road. If you were injured because a truck was in disrepair, call the San Francisco truck accident lawyers at Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn. We can help you build a strong case to obtain the best possible outcome for your situation.

When Commercial Trucks Break Down

Due to the heavy strain put on semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles, they require more frequent maintenance to ensure they are as safe as possible when they are put on the road. While all trucks are required by federal law to undergo certain inspections and repairs, companies have been known to take shortcuts.

Failure to perform maintenance can result in:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Lack of tire traction
  • Missing or defective lighting, such as turn and brake signals
  • Ineffective brakes
  • Fluid leaks

When these kinds of accidents happen, the results can be catastrophic and lead to serious injury or death. If you were injured in an accident like this, it is crucial that you get the help you need to fight for compensation.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Trucking companies take out large insurance policies to ensure that any problems that occur will be covered. While they may be responsible for the damage they caused, their insurer is likely to fight tooth and nail to point the blame elsewhere—usually back at you. With thousands of cases handled and over $500 million recovered in damage awards, Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn knows how to help you obtain the best possible outcome for your case.

During your free consultation, our San Francisco truck accident lawyers will go over exactly what happened and give you a clear picture about what to expect with your case. We can consult with legal experts to best help you tell your side of the story and ensure you get the maximum compensation possible. Don’t fight the insurance companies on your own.
