Today's tractor-trailer trucks are highly sophisticated vehicles that require extensive preventative maintenance. Companies are required to keep precise records to show that the maintenance has been completed.
If you or a family member is involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler or other commercial vehicle, unsafe equipment or a mechanical failure may be at fault. The company itself, as well as maintenance subcontractors and parts manufacturers, may all be held liable.
Victims in these cases are entitled to full compensation for medical treatment, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. If a family member was killed in the accident, you may have a wrongful death lawsuit.
Of course, you would not know if the truck was unsafe, and the trucking company is unlikely to reveal that information. Only an accident investigation specialist can determine as much. That is why it is important to contact the experienced North Carolina truck accident lawyers at Comerford & Britt, LLP, as soon as possible following a truck accident.
