Mechanical Failure

No Fee Unless You Win. 

Helping Columbus Residents Recover From 18-Wheeler Accidents Caused By Mechanical Failure

Negligent maintenance of a tractor-trailer can have devastating consequences. An 80,000-pound vehicle with nonfunctioning lights, brakes, steering or other safety equipment puts other people at risk of serious injury or death.

DOT Rules On Truck Maintenance

Under Department of Transportation rules, trucking companies must inspect, maintain and repair all safety systems of commercial vehicles, including tires, brakes, lights, frames, wheels and the steering system. Trucking companies must also keep records for a period of time to show that maintenance was done.

Truck drivers are required to complete a vehicle inspection report each day before they take a truck on the road. Drivers must also keep logs of defects and repair any defects that would prevent safe operation of the vehicle.

Helping You Discover The Evidence That Caused The Accident

At Van Eman Law, LLC, we represent the victims of Ohio truck accidents caused by mechanical truck failure who are located in Columbus and surrounding communities. If you or a loved one has been injured by an improperly maintained tractor-trailer, we will spend the time and resources it takes to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Our lawyers will take necessary steps to preserve and review available evidence such as the trucking company maintenance logs and truck driver inspection logs. If we find that the trucking company failed to properly maintain the tractor-trailer or repair safety defects, we will use that information to hold the trucking company and driver accountable.
