Oklahoma Failure to Maintain Vehicles Lawyers

Like every vehicle on the road, large trucks must be properly maintained in order to perform safely. But unlike passenger vehicles, 18-wheelers and other large trucks often travel thousands of miles at a time, putting even more wear and tear on essential components. If a truck is not properly maintained, devastating accidents can occur as a result.

Sadly, accidents involving large trucks are often fatal. The sheer size of these vehicles makes them capable of creating significant damage and injury in the event of an accident. If a truck is not well-maintained, that risk is heightened. If your accident with a large truck was influenced by improper maintenance, you deserve a chance at justice.
