Detroit Failure to Inspect Vehicles Lawyers
Long-haul commercial trucks are very large and potentially dangerous vehicles that can cause devastating accidents unless they are properly inspected and maintained on a regular basis. Many of these trucks travel for hundreds of miles a day, so it is vital to ensure the vehicle’s upkeep in order to reduce the likelihood of an accident occurring. Unfortunately, in order to save time and money, many trucking companies often overlook or ignore vehicle inspections in favor of meeting their strict deadlines.

Dangers of Failure to Inspect
Commercial trucks are among the largest and most frequently encountered vehicles on our roads, so it is important that they get routinely inspected just like regular vehicles. Typically, they should be inspected more often because of the considerable strain that they are subjected to in the course of business. If an inspection is not carried out properly or even performed in the first place, some of the following dangers may go unnoticed:
- Non-functioning lights and signals
- Tire balding
- Tread separation
- Low fluid levels
- Transmission failure
- Brake pad deterioration
When a trucking company fails to comply with inspection laws, they are putting their drivers and other innocent bystanders at tremendous risk. When trucking companies are responsible for an accident that could have been prevented if the vehicle had been properly inspected, they may be required to pay financial compensation to any victims of the accident.
