Charlotte Truck Accident Attorneys - Truck Maintenance Cases
North Carolina Highway Truck Collision Lawyers
Federal regulations require that trucking companies and their drivers provide continued and proper maintenance and inspections on big rigs. When they neglect to do so, and this neglect causes a truck crash, they can be held liable for any injuries or wrongful death resulting from the accident.
Put a Skilled Lawyer on Your Side
Trucking companies and their representatives will immediately start investigating the situation following an accident. They will try to claim that the truck crash was not their responsibility, and may even try to place blame on the driver of the car.
Charles G. Monnett III & Associates is an experienced Charlotte, North Carolina, law firm committed to representing people injured in semi-truck crashes. We understand how to investigate whether the lack of maintenance contributed to the trucking accident. We can help uncover the truth, and assist in collecting proper and just compensation on your behalf.
Some of the truck crash cases we handle involve:
- Missing or inadequate reflective tape
- Broken or burned out headlights and taillights
- Defective couplings
- Brake failure
- Improper wheel alignment
- Cargo overload
- Trailer-hitch failure
- Shredded tires
Sadly, many of these failures and defects could be prevented with simple checks and routine maintenance. Running behind schedule, or bonuses for faster delivery, are no excuses for careless and potentially dangerous actions. At Charles G. Monnett III & Associates, we will fight to make sure truck companies and drivers are held responsible for their actions.
