Cleveland Truck Accident Attorneys
Ohio Semi-truck Accident Law Firm
Under federal regulations, trucking companies are required to perform regularly scheduled maintenance on all operating systems in their cabs, engines and trailers. Certain components are required to be replaced after a certain number of highway miles or hours of operations. If a truck is in an accident caused by equipment failure or improperly maintained equipment, the truck company may be in violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations. The company may be held liable for compensatory and punitive damages paid to victims injured in the crash, or to family members in the event of a fatality.
