A common cause of trucking accidents is faulty maintenance. Both the driver and truck company are required to perform routine maintenance in order to check for faulty parts, and potential hazards. Failure to do so can result in serious, and sometimes fatal, trucking accidents.
At the law offices of Dollar, Burns & Becker, L.C., we have the knowledge and the experience to hold drivers and truck companies accountable for their negligence. We also pursue claims against manufacturers if a defective product led to the accident.

Problems Caused by Poor Maintenance
Some truck companies will opt to take a risk and forego standard maintenance on their fleet. They fail to consider that poor maintenance does not just add wear and tear to the tractor-trailer; it can potentially affect the health and lives of people on the road. Poorly maintained trucks can lead to brake failure, detached trailers, tire blowouts, steering problems and other safety hazards.
As experienced Missouri trial attorneys, we know what evidence to look for in order to identify the cause of the truck accident and file a successful claim against the party at fault. Part of our investigation includes reviewing maintenance logs and other evidence we can use to place liability on the trucker or trucking company. These logs can tell us if proper maintenance was performed, and on a regular basis. We may learn that the truck company adhered to all safety precautions, in which case a manufacturer of a defective part may be at fault.
