Lack Of Maintenance is One Cause of Trucking Accidents
There are all sorts of reasons for trucking accidents in Cameron County and, perhaps surprisingly, lack of maintenance is one. Trucks need regular maintenance in order to be safe and secure on the roads and if the truck company fails to carry out regular maintenance – even if it is only missing one routine service – all sorts of things can be wrong. Brakes may fail, lights may not be working correctly, there may be engine problems, trailer hitches could break – the list goes on. If something like this happens then the trucking company and/or the owner of the truck will be liable.
There is also the possibility of drivers continuing to drive when they should be taking a break. If this happens it is easy for the driver to become over-tired. He could also be under the influence of drink or drugs which of course can play a major part in an accident.
It is even possible for the local authority or city to be liable if roads are not correctly signed or there are potholes which contributed to the accident.
