Massachusetts Faulty Inspection Attorneys
When trucking companies and their drivers fail to properly inspect their vehicles, there is an increased risk for these vehicles to become involved in a dangerous accident. Due to the sheer size of 18-wheelers and other large commercial trucks, any collisions they are involved in have the potential to be devastating. Although the truck driver may perform his driving responsibilities safely, a faulty inspection can lead to failures in the vehicle that hinder the driver’s ability to prevent an accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident in Massachusetts that you believe was caused by the trucking company, our Massachusetts trucking accident lawyers at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP may be able to help you investigate the circumstances of the accident and potentially recover a financial settlement.
Mechanical Failures Caused by Faulty Inspections
By conducting thorough inspections of every system and part in 18-wheelers, drivers and trucking companies can make sure that none of these parts will malfunction and cause a dangerous wreck. When these parties perform faulty inspections on their vehicles, the following systems are in danger of failure:
- Braking system
- Steering system
- Safety systems
- Underride protection systems
- Trailer hitch system
The proper maintenance of these vehicles is vital to the safety of both the truck driver and every other driver with which they share the road.
