Mechanical Problems & Injuries Associated With Atlanta Truck Crashes

The fleets of trucking companies often experience mechanical problems associated with aging trucks and have to make decisions to repair the vehicles, replace the trucks, or take them out of service. When the trucker or company ignores the mechanical problems and the age of a truck and continues to allow the truck to haul goods throughout Georgia and across state lines, there could be serious consequences. 

An aging truck can break down and cause the trucker a delay in getting the goods to their destinations on time. More importantly, innocent motorists traveling the roads with aging trucks could suffer injuries if involved in an Atlanta truck crash caused by mechanical problems.

As trucks age, tires also age. Tires need to be replaced with wear and tear; however, if tight budgets and a lack of maintenance cause a truck to be on the road with highly worn or bald tires, tire blowout accidents can occur due to an aging truck.

Aging trucks and tires can cause Georgia trucking accidents. However, it may be difficult for you to determine what the cause of the crash was. After being injured in a truck wreck, it is essential that you talk with an attorney with commercial trucking experience. A skilled accident attorney will know how to investigate the crash – looking for critical information to help prove your case.
