Mechanical Defects and Truck Accidents

Trucking companies are responsible for performing regular, careful inspections and maintenance on their semi trucks and 18-wheelers in order to help prevent accidents caused by mechanical defects. Unfortunately, some trucking companies choose to cut costs by avoiding necessary automotive care, increasing the risk of dangerous breakdowns on the road. However, if these preventable mechanical defects lead to truck accidents in Dallas, victims can take legal action against the negligent trucking company at fault with the help of the knowledgeable attorneys from the Law Offices of Mark T.
