Poor Vehicle Maintenance

Poor Vehicle Maintenance Leads to Many Florida Truck Accidents

Anyone who owns and cares for a vehicle knows that continual maintenance is crucial for keeping it safe and on the road. While this is simple, common knowledge, it seems that many trucking companies fail to realize the wisdom in it, and instead put dangerous and unmaintained vehicles on the road.

Continual maintenance and preventative care is the safest and cheapest way to keep a vehicle on the road. However, it can seem burdensome or expensive in the short run. Two main factors prevent many trucking companies from properly maintaining their vehicles:

  • The cost of maintenance
  • The cost of having trucks off the road

While this short-sighted behavior can be traced to logic, that does not mean it is not irresponsible. In fact, poorly maintained vehicles put all of those around them at risk, causing many Florida truck accidents each year.

Due to the weight and force these big rigs bring to collisions, Florida truck wrecks are usually very dangerous (or even fatal) for those involved. Poorly maintained trucks may cause the following injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Death
