When Trucks Aren't Properly Maintained
Semi-trucks take a beating during their lifetime. They see a lot of miles and suffer the wear that comes with heavy daily use. They need to be maintained properly in order to operate safely. When they aren't taken care of, they can cause serious trucking accidents.
At the Arizona law firm of Beale, Micheaels & Slack, our lawyers hold trucking companies accountable for accidents caused by poorly maintained vehicles. We know which steps to take to get you the compensation you need.

How Can We Tell If a Truck Accident
Was Caused by Negligent Maintenance?
Our attorneys are not new to trucking accident cases. Not only have we handled many of them, we also work with investigators and accident reconstruction experts who are extremely experienced in this area.
With these resources on our side, it doesn't take us long to determine when negligent maintenance is at the heart of a trucking accident case. In fact, sometimes it becomes obvious right away: We ask the trucking company for their maintenance records and they can't provide them.
When a trucking accident happens, there is an initial inspection by the Department of Transportation. Sometimes, this can reveal maintenance issues. Even if it doesn't, our experts will dig deep to make certain that nothing is missed as we strive to build a strong case.
Trucking Companies Should Not Cut Corners
Maintenance issues can come in many forms, including broken running lights, missing reflector tape, worn out tires and other problems.
Many times, we discover that maintenance was not simply missed by accident. It was missed in order to keep a truck on the road longer or to delay the cost of repairs. When trucking companies cut corners and it leads to an accident, we will hold them accountable.
