Why is Poor Truck Maintenance Dangerous?

Poor truck maintenance can lead to a catastrophic truck accident. When a trucking company fails to follow regulations and safety standards set by the FMCSA, the truck might be unsafe to operate. Failing to inspect, maintain, and repair commercial trucks, accessories, and parts can lead to system failures when the truck is on the road.

Examples of how poor truck maintenance can cause truck accidents include:

    • Damaged, dimming, and burnt-out reflectors and lights decrease the truck driver’s ability to see other vehicles and objects at night. It also makes it more difficult for other drivers to see a tractor and trailer at night.
    • Failing to maintain a truck’s brakes could lead to total brake failure. A runaway truck can cause massive damage, especially on a crowded interstate.
    • A fully loaded commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds. Failing to maintain the truck’s suspension system could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.
    • Commercial truck tires are designed for heavy loads and extreme conditions. A tire blowout can cause the truck to crash. Tire debris is also a hazard that could cause another driver to wreck.
  • Poorly maintained truck fuel systems can result in explosions and fires from leaks.
  • Damaged and worn windshield wipers reduce a truck driver’s visibility, possibly leading to a truck crash.

Identifying what factors led to the truck accident helps determine who is liable for damages. Trucking companies, truck drivers, manufacturers, repair shops, and maintenance facilities could be liable for a poorly maintained truck accident claim.

What Damages Could I Receive for a Truck Accident Caused by Poor Maintenance?

The damages you could receive for a truck accident case depend on the facts of the case. However, most accident victims can recover reimbursement for their economic damages, including future financial losses. They can also receive compensation for non-economic damages, including pain and suffering.

Examples of damages in a poorly maintained truck accident case include:

  • Physical pain and discomfort
  • Medical bills and rehabilitation costs
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish
  • Loss of income and benefits
  • Reductions in future earning capacity
  • Permanent impairments and disabilities
  • Loss of enjoyment of and quality of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Commercial truck accidents cause catastrophic injuries. Victims may suffer from traumatic brain injury, paralysis, amputations, internal organ damage, and severe disfigurement. The cost of treating catastrophic injuries is substantial.

Additionally, a person may experience life-altering conditions. The conditions may result in devastating losses and impairments. Victims deserve to be compensated for their pain, including ongoing suffering.

What Is the Deadline for Filing a Claim for a Truck Accident Caused by Poor Maintenance?

The Texas statute of limitations for most truck accident cases is two years after the truck crash. However, there could be exceptions to that deadline. Therefore, if you were injured in a truck accident, it is best to seek legal advice immediately after the accident.
