Common Causes of Georgia Large Truck Accidents: Negligent Truck Maintenance and Faulty Manufacturing

By Grant Law Office on May 5, 2011 - Comments off

Our previous post concerned large truck accidents caused by Georgia truck driver negligence; here, we will continue our topic of common Georgia large truck crash causes with: 1) Negligent Truck Maintenance; and 2) Faulty Manufacturing or Design.

Large trucks, especially long-haul trucks, can travel over 3,000 miles weekly. This can cause severe wear and tear on a commercial truck’s system and its parts. Brake failure, tire blowouts, and engine over-heating could potentially cause a severe Georgia large truck injury accident, which is why regular inspections and maintenance are necessary and required. If a trucking company or driver fails to perform timely inspections, maintenance, and repairs, the company and possibly the driver, can be held responsible in the event of an accident. Negligent truck maintenance potentially places hazardous vehicles on the road.

It is also possible for faulty truck manufacturing or defective design to cause a large truck crash. When a large truck’s brake system is faulty, the tires are defective, or the axles are improperly connected to the wheels, it can cause serious problems for long-distance travel. If the truck manufacturer does not repair problems found with its trucks, or if a truck company does not repair problems it knows are there, they may be liable for the resulting accidents and injuries.
