Defective Truck Maintenance Attorneys in Southwest Georgia
All vehicles require regular maintenance to function properly. Semitrucks require more maintenance, simply because of the wear and tear they encounter on a daily basis. However, maintenance is not only expensive, but time-consuming as well. In the trucking industry, as in all other industries, time and money are precious commodities. Some are happy to conserve them at the risk of putting others in danger.
When a truck maintenance failure leads to a trucking accident, the full-service law firm of Silvis, Ambrose, Lindquist & Coch, P.C., is here to help the victim. With decades of experience on our side, we will help you get the full and fair compensation you need.
Who Is Responsible: The Truck Driver or the Trucking Company?
Among the many duties truck drivers are required to perform, they must conduct an inspection of their vehicle every time they go out. Typically, truck inspections must be conducted on a regular basis. If the trucker fails to conduct that inspection or fails to get the maintenance to address problems revealed in the inspection, he or she should be held accountable for the harm caused if the maintenance problem leads to an accident.
Ultimately, trucking companies are responsible for their employees. Our lawyers take action against negligent truckers and negligent trucking companies in cases involving bad brakes, tire blowouts and other problems that could have been prevented with proper maintenance.
