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.

I was involved in a serious auto accident. Not that there is a good time to be in any accident, it just happened to be 2020. Tillman Law and support staff kept me in the loop as the court system was disarray with all the Covid issues. The staff was very professional and courteous. In a nutshell, they took care of me.

My husband was in a bad car accident a few years back, and he was stopped due to traffic. He was behind a fuel truck, and someone rear-ended him, going 60mph. The worst part was our 6 mo old was in our and the truck was totaled beyond repair and my husbands back injured severly he ended up with 2 broken vertebrae. Our child had ptsd any time getting into a vehicle after that. Tillman made this right even though we couldn't do much for our son other comfort him and make car rides more comfortable from there on out Tillman was able to get my husband the money he deserved after the other driver was extremely negligent and either not paying attention or on his phone or something unfortunately this was during covid and when the police came they didnt do a single thing to check for any of that. We can't say enough good things about Aaron Tillman he gave us our hope back and the ability to have back surgery to repair a lot of his back issues due to the car wreck. So if you have been in an accident definitely call Tillman Law they're amazing super professional, kind and empathetic beings who will work for the best possible outcome for your case and fight they won't just roll over and play dead they spent about 2.5 years on my husbands case never giving up. He was always super honest with my husband and always communicated everything. So again, thank you, Aaron Tillman, and thank you to your law firm for working so tirelessly. We appreciate it more than you know.

I can’t recommend Tillman Law enough. We were in a sticky situation from a car accident in December and my partner was out of work for over a month. Aaron told us we may not be able to get those lost wages, but he would definitely try to fight the insurance for them and even then we might not see the money for a long time. It’s only been 3 1/2 months since the accident and we just got our lost funds today. Tillman Law was quick, efficient, and made this entire situation much less painful. I appreciate everything they’ve done for us.
