Illinois Trucking Accident Attorney

Truck Defects and Equipment Failure in Orland Park

Trucking companies are out to make money, just like any other business. Unfortunately, the lust for money sometimes leads to cutting corners in the interest of making a profit. When it comes to semi-tractor trailers, cutting corners puts others in serious danger. Trucking companies will try to save money by not replacing brakes and tires at regularly-scheduled intervals. When this is done, it is much more likely that the truck will experience a brake failure or tire blowout which can endanger the lives of other motorists on the road.

Truck accidents are not always caused by such serious incidents like brake failures and tire blowouts. Simple things like burned out bulbs which the trucking company fails to replace or low levels of steering or brake fluid can also cause accidents which lead to serious injury or death.

Whether the equipment on a truck was properly installed, maintained and replaced is an important issue to investigate in any trucking accident. Trucking companies are required to keep maintenance records on their big rigs to prove that they were maintained in accordance with the law. As with any records, these can be altered by the trucking companies to hide cost-cutting practices. As an experienced truck accident attorney, I know how to obtain these records from the trucking companies as quickly as possible. I also know how to obtain the information contained in those records from sources other than the trucking company itself so that any alterations of the records can be discovered.
