Proving Liability in Truck Accident Cases

If you have been injured in an accident involving defective truck equipment, you may have a case of liability against both the trucking company and the company that made the defective part.

Under Department of Transportation rules, trucking companies are required to perform regular maintenance to ensure that safety equipment such as tires, brakes, lights and other equipment are in working order. Truck drivers are required to perform pre-trip inspections of safety equipment, as well as walk-around inspections each time the vehicle is parked.

When an accident occurs, it's important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to collect and preserve evidence of negligence such as failed brakes and blown tires. Otherwise, the evidence you need to prove negligence may drive out of the state.
