Attorneys for Truck Equipment Failure or Poor Maintenance Accident Victims in Lombard, Bloomingdale, and Naperville

Many truck accidents on Illinois roadways occur due to equipment failure. Commercial truckers are under a lot of pressure to make prompt deliveries. This can often lead to poor maintenance procedures and other careless shortcuts that endanger other motorists and pedestrians. When truck equipment failure and/or poor maintenance leads to an accident involving serious injuries, it can be difficult to prove the exact cause. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney who has specific experience with these types of cases.

Common Types of Truck Equipment Failure

Poor maintenance can lead to numerous forms of truck equipment failure. Some of the most common include:

  • Brake failure;
  • Tire blowouts;
  • Trailer dislodgement;
  • Defective steering equipment;
  • Faulty windshield wipers;
  • Burned out headlights or tail lights;
  • Mirrors that are broken or missing; and
  • Numerous faulty interior engine parts.

Commercial trucks must be in compliance with multiple federal and state laws and safety regulations before being driven. Thorough inspections and regular maintenance should be performed to keep the truck in safe operating condition. When a truck equipment failure accident occurs, there could be several at-fault parties, including the driver, the trucking company, a company hired to perform maintenance, and the vehicle or part manufacturer. Investigations of the accident scene, maintenance records, and other important information must be performed to determine which parties are responsible.
