Kankakee Failure to Inspect Vehicles Lawyer
Requirements for vehicle inspections are common to anyone who owns a car, and they are required to have their vehicles inspected annually in order to ensure that they are in roadworthy condition. Commercial semi-trucks are on the road far more often than conventional vehicles, and are subjected to incredible stresses while in operation due to their size, weight, and distance traveled, necessitating the need for inspections and repairs more frequently than is necessary for other vehicles.
Unfortunately, trucking companies are not always willing to commit the resources necessary to perform these inspections, and their drivers and others on the roadway face an increased risk of accidents as a consequence. If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of a trucking company, an experienced Kankakee failure to inspect vehicles attorney can help you to pursue financial compensation through legal action.

Requirements for Inspection
There are many critical systems on a semi-truck that are subjected to far more use and stress than the components of a typical passenger car or truck, and the deterioration of these functions is inevitable. For this reason, the following systems are regularly inspected for safety:
- Headlights and warning lights
- Parts designed to wear such as brakes and tires
- Turning indicators
- Cargo hitch attachments
- Engine systems
When a trucking company fails to regularly inspect these systems, maintenance problems can quickly become critical issues that lead to a dangerous accident.
If you have suffered an injury in a trucking accident that could have been prevented had the trucking company fulfilled their inspection obligations, you are likely entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.
