Proper Inspection Records and Truck Maintenance Records
Trucking companies are required to keep inspection records to show compliance with federal regulations regarding vehicle maintenance. After a trucking accident that leaves other drivers or passengers seriously injured, these inspection records can be helpful in proving that a failure to maintain the truck or trailer may have contributed to or caused the accident.

Looking at Inspection Records Following a Trucking Accident
After a truck accident, our firm conducts a close investigation of the records involved in the accident. This includes driver's logs, onboard computers and "black box" information, as well as truck maintenance and inspection records. These records will show whether proper maintenance was performed on tires, brakes, air brakes, trailers, lights and other parts of the truck.
