Memphis Trucking Mechanical Defect and Malfunction Attorneys

Large commercial trucks can pose a serious threat to others on the road when their mechanical parts and systems are not manufactured and/or maintained properly. While there are a number of strict regulations imposed on the trucking industry, many trucking companies will attempt to increase their profit margins by neglecting key steps in the process of ensuring the safety and proper function of their vehicles.

The Memphis attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers want you to know that help is available to you in dealing with the aftermath of a trucking collision. We can assist you in identifying the responsible party and creating a legal strategy intended to hold them financially accountable for their negligence.

Common Mechanical Defects

As is the case with any vehicle, wear and tear on mechanical parts can affect their function, and vehicle owners have a duty to get their cars checked in order to prevent mechanical failure. Large commercial trucks depend on even more complex systems in order to function properly, and should therefore be checked regularly. Some of the most common parts that malfunction are:

  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Trailer
  • Steering System
  • Underride Protection

As a driver, you do your part to ensure the safety of everyone else on the road; you have every right to expect the same thing of other drivers on the road. Don’t let negligent trucking companies get away with putting you and your passengers in danger.
