There Is No Excuse for Truck Brake Failure on the Road
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has strict regulations relating to truck equipment and scheduled maintenance. Truck companies are required to keep their equipment in good repair and truck drivers are required to report safety problems and equipment failure.
At the first hint of a braking or stopping problem, trucks must be removed from the road for maintenance — not when the truck gets back into town, not during the next scheduled maintenance, not when the truck driver finds the time.
If you or a member of your family was injured in a truck accident because of truck brake failure, you are entitled to seek full and fair compensation for your medical treatment, lost earnings and pain and suffering. If you are not sure whether the truck driver or transportation company was negligent, you owe it to yourself to talk to an experienced truck accident lawyer.
