Danville Failure to Inspect Vehicles Attorney
Like all vehicles, commercial trucks need to be regularly inspected and maintained in order to function safely and efficiently. In fact, they should be inspected more often than personal vehicles given that they are operated nearly every day at high speeds and maximum capacity. The average 18-wheeler or semi truck is driven over 100,000 miles in one year; by comparison, the average personal vehicle is driven 10,000 – 15,000. Thus, the owners and operators of trucking companies should understand and respect the need for frequent vehicle inspections and maintenance.
If a truck owner or trucking company fails to inspect the vehicles regularly, dangerous and sometimes deadly accidents can occur. The Danville failure to inspect vehicles attorneys at Spiros Law, P.C., believe that negligent trucking companies should be held legally accountable for any damages that their trucks cause due to inadequate maintenance.
