Texas Truck Accident Lawyers Fighting for You
When there is an accident involving semi-trucks, big rigs or 18-wheelers, there are usually very serious consequences. The sheer size of these trucks cause incredibly serious damage and injuries. A very common cause for a trucking accident is brake failure. In order to ensure that these trucks are safe to operate on the road, they need to undergo regular maintenance and proper inspections, including checking that the brakes are working properly.
If a truck driver or trucking company does not provide a truck with proper inspection, repair or maintenance, the brakes can and often will fail. Stopping a large truck is already challenging because of its size, but it becomes almost impossible for a truck to stop if the brakes are faulty. This can cause a catastrophic accident in which the victims can sustain serious injuries.
