What if a trucking company didn’t perform required maintenance on a truck?

Every vehicle will have to undergo maintenance at some point, and this maintenance is extremely important for preserving the safety of a vehicle.  This is especially true for large, 18-wheeler trucks that tend to travel for longer periods of time and see more use than most other vehicles.  Without regular maintenance, these vehicles can become dangerous and destructive.  It is the responsibility of a trucking company to make sure that its trucks get the regular maintenance they need. Thus, if a company fails to ensure trucks receive this maintenance, it might be held legally and financially accountable for any accident or injuries that are caused by an accident.
