Injured? Hire a Las Vegas Truck Accident Attorney
One of the many duties that truck drivers and trucking companies have under federal law is to regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles. From replacing worn windshield wipers to inspecting trailer hitches, trucking companies are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to ensure their vehicles are in prime working order to protect against dangerous malfunctions while on the roadways. Unfortunately, pressures on truck drivers to reach their destination as quickly as possible can sometimes cause drivers to skip mandatory inspections, oftentimes to deadly results.

Poor Maintenance Endangers Lives
Since controlling an 80,000 pound commercial truck can be difficult even under normal conditions, any sort of mechanical failure can be a recipe for disaster. If a truck’s headlights fail, the driver may be blind to nearby traffic. If a tire blows out, the driver could lose control of their vehicle and strike other motorists. In the event that a preventable malfunction should result in a collision, trucking companies and truck drivers can be held liable for any damages that should result. Depending on the circumstances, injured parties may have grounds to pursue compensation for their lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs.
Our attorneys can help you pursue compensation for injuries caused by:
- Faulty brakes
- Worn windshield wipers
- Exploding tires
- Burnt-out headlights and taillights
- Defective trailer hitches
- Malfunctioning onboard electronics
