Truck drivers, like all other drivers, have civil responsibilities to other drivers on the road to operate their vehicles safely. However, truck driving companies also owe their employees certain duties, including the properly maintenance of their vehicles. Without proper maintenance, large trucks can begin to deteriorate or malfunction, which can not only put a driver at risk for an accident, but also anyone on the road that is near him or her if an accident occurs.
Trucking company negligence is a common problem in the U.S. that causes far too many unsuspecting drivers to suffer unduly. If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident because a trucking company disregarded its responsibility to maintain its vehicles, you could be due financial compensation.

Over time, large trucks might see normal wear and tear, like tread separation, tire weaknesses, broken windows or mirrors, and other problems, and if these issues are not addressed, vehicles can become very unsafe. Some of the dangers of an improperly maintained vehicle include:
These dangerous situations could easily cause injury to someone who does not suspect that an oncoming or nearby truck is unsafe.
