What Are Examples of Poor Truck Maintenance That Can Lead to Injury?

In 2020, there were nearly 1,900 accidents in Oregon involving trucks. They resulted in 1,088 injuries and 48 deaths. Trucks that travel on Oregon roads can be dangerous enough when they’re regularly maintained and in good working order—a fully loaded semi-truck can weigh in at a whopping 80,000 pounds.  

But when a truck is poorly maintained, they’re even more dangerous. Federal regulations require systematic and regular inspection of trucks. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. 

The following are some of the things that can go wrong when trucks aren’t maintained:

  • Air brake system failure that prevents the truck from stopping
  • Defective suspension system that can result in the loss of control over the truck
  • Worn tire treads that might result in a tire blowout
  • Malfunction of the steering system
  • Worn windshield wipers that impair the driver’s ability to see

As you can see, trucks are complicated machines, and their safe operation depends on regular and thorough maintenance of all critical parts and systems. When a truck driver or owner fails to keep their trucks in good working order, the results can be catastrophic to innocent drivers.

At Tillmann Law Personal Injury Lawyers, we have the experience and know-how to determine if a poorly-maintained truck was the cause of your accident. If we do, we will negotiate with the insurance company for every penny to which you’re entitled. If the insurance company refuses to do the right thing, we’ll take your case to trial.  

If I’ve Been Injured by a Poorly Maintained Truck, What Kinds of Damages Can I Recover? 

It’s important to understand the types of damages to which you may be. Under Oregon law, you could be entitled to both “economic” and “non-economic” damages.

Economic damages are verifiable financial losses you incur as a result of the accident. They include your past, present, and future medical bills, rehabilitation costs, loss of income, impairment of your earning capacity, property damage, and other financial losses. 

But you may have other injuries that are more difficult to label with a monetary value. These are called non-economic damages, which compensate you for injuries such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. 

It’s important to have an attorney who can identify and get you compensation for all your injuries. Tillmann Law Personal Injury Lawyers will work hard to make sure you get compensation not only for your injuries that can be easily seen, but also for those that aren’t so obvious.
