Failure to Inspect Vehicles
Trucking companies are responsible for keeping company vehicles running safely. One of the critical ways companies keep their trucks running properly is by inspecting the vehicles regularly. When companies fail to inspect or properly maintain their vehicles, these massive 18-wheelers and commercial vehicles are far more prone to malfunction. The results of a New York truck accident can be devastating, resulting in serious injuries or, in the worst cases, wrongful death.
At Hach & Rose, LLP, our New York lawyers believe the failure to inspect vehicles is a serious offense and, when this negligence results in an injurious accident, the trucking company responsible should be held financially accountable. If you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident in New York, it’s possible that trucking company negligence is the true culprit. We are committed to representing victims against negligent trucking companies, and we may also fight for financial compensation on your behalf.
Dangers of Failing to Inspect Vehicles
When trucking companies in New York fail to inspect vehicles, seriously damaging accidents are far more likely to occur. Some consequences of the failure to inspect vehicles include:
- Defective parts
- Leaking fluids
- Worn brakes
- Low levels of fluids
These vehicle maintenance problems can cause serious car accidents on the road. If you have experienced a truck accident, the underlying cause may have been a negligent trucking company who failed to provide maintenance to its vehicles. A New York attorney can help you determine who was at fault for your accident and may guide you through the process of pursuing financial restitution.
