San Diego Failure to Inspect Vehicles Lawyers
Because they are often on the road for hours at a time, 18-wheelers and commercial trucks typically accumulate wear and tear much more quickly than passenger vehicles. As such, trucking companies are required to routinely inspect their trucks to check for damage or wear that could increase the risk of an accident and make any necessary repairs. When truck drivers or companies fail to inspect their vehicles as required or make the needed repairs and cause an innocent motorist to be injured in an accident as a result, they may be held financially accountable.
