Inadequate Truck Maintenance in Fort Worth
We Are Backed By 35+ Years of Experience
Because commercial trucks are so large and carry so much cargo, they require
a lot of things to go right in order for them to operate safely. This
means they must undergo regular inspections and frequent preventative
maintenance in order to continue to operate within an acceptable margin
of risk. However, maintenance can get expensive, and it’s not unheard
of for some trucking companies to try to save money and cut corners on
their maintenance. This puts other drivers on the road with their trucks
at risk of being injured should this maintenance cause a part to fail
and a devastating
trucking accident to occur.

What Is Negligent Maintenance?
Trucks require their maintenance to be kept up or else the unmaintained
parts could eventually fail, causing a serious accident. This is known
as negligent maintenance, and you can use this negligence to hold the
truck’s operator responsible for your injuries.
Some common sources of negligent maintenance on trucks include:
- Engine (oil changes, coolant, etc.)
- Safety equipment (lights, signals, etc.)
When maintenance in one of these regards is neglected or an inspection
missed, a truck’s risk for a serious accident rises dramatically.
For example, if a truck driver decides to skip his usual inspection and
fails to notice that one of his tires is low, the company that operates
the truck could be held responsible for failing to properly maintain it.
This means you could receive compensation for your injuries, including
medical treatment, lost income, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and more!
