Equipment maintenance is a real important aspect of investigating a truck wreck. If you or a loved one have been involved in a wreck with a truck, it’s very important to secure all the documents with respect to the safety equipment on that truck and how well it’s been maintained. Trucking companies knows that brakes wear out, steering parts wear out, the systems that provide the hydraulic pressure or the air pressure to the various safety components, including the brakes, all of those are subject to wear, all of those have to be maintained. We try and get those records just as soon as possible after a truck wreck for the purpose that they may establish that this was an accident just waiting to happen. If you’ve got a vehicle that weighs tens of thousands of pounds going at high speed on a public highway in heavy traffic, it’s got to be able to function properly when it comes time to stop.
