San Diego Poor Vehicle Maintenance Accident Attorney

How many times have you been driving down the roadway and have seen a vehicle that probably should not be in use due to poor maintenance? We see it all the time. Unfortunately, a poorly maintained vehicle can cause significant injuries.

In most cases, drivers of poorly maintained vehicles know they should not be on the road. Surprisingly, many of these vehicles are owned by companies. At the Simpson Law Group, we want to help if another person’s negligence causes you harm. When you need a San Diego poor vehicle maintenance accident attorney, contact us today.

The Reality Of Crashes

For the latest reporting year in California, there were over 278,000 injuries reported that occurred as a result of vehicle crashes. While we realize that not all of these crashes were due to the negligence of a driver, there were many cases in which a poorly maintained vehicle was to blame. In a way, this, too, is the fault of a driver.

Most people know when their personal vehicle poses a risk on the roadway. Some of the common problems are:

  • Old tires that need replacing
  • Brakes that need replacing
  • Known transmission issues
  • Loose vehicle parts that can fly off the vehicle
  • Burnt out lights (headlights, brake lights, blinkers)

If it is discovered that poor maintenance played a part in a vehicle crash, that vehicle’s owner and/or insurance company could be on the line for all of your expenses.

Commercial Vehicles And Maintenance

For companies that own vehicles, they have an added responsibility. Not only do they need to ensure the safety of their own employees, but they need to ensure their vehicles do not cause harm to others on the roadway.

There are millions of large trucks on the roadway:

  • Eighteen-wheelers (tractor-trailers)
  • Delivery trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • And more

Companies and agencies in charge of these larger vehicles need to take added precautions in the form of regular inspections and maintenance. Due to the size and weight of larger trucks, they can cause catastrophic damage when involved in a crash. This can include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain damage, and internal organ damage.

Moving On From Here

It is irresponsible for a person to drive a poorly maintained vehicle. This includes private vehicle owners as well as those who own commercial vehicles.
