Austin Unsafe Trucks Attorneys

Did Poor Maintenance Lead to a Truck Accident?

The trucking company is responsible for the safe operating condition of its fleet. Truck drivers are also responsible for inspecting their truck and freight before getting on the highway.

At Lorenz & Lorenz, L.L.P., we know that sloppy maintenance and patched-up trucks put other motorists at grave risk. We have handled many preventable accidents that can be traced back to mechanical failures and safety violations that made those trucks unsafe.

Contact us immediately if your loved one was injured in a crash involving an 18-wheeler or other large truck. Our experienced accident attorneys investigate cases in Austin and surrounding counties of central Texas.

Unsafe Trucks

Ted Lorenz and his team, which includes an on-staff investigator, work to prove the lack of maintenance, neglected safety checks or other accountability in our pursuit of compensation for truck wreck victims. We look at every possible cause:

  • Bald tires or blown tires
  • Worn or failed brakes
  • Mechanical problems in the steering or power train
  • Missing headlights, trailer lights or reflective tape
  • Loose tarps, broken latches or unsecured freight

A truck that can't stop or can't steer causes horrible injuries when it hits a car. A truck without proper running lights and reflective decals is a recipe for intersection accidents. We have handled every type of injury from these unsafe truck accidents, from permanent injuries to soft tissue damage.

To maximize damages, our lawyers work to establish liability of the transportation company and any third parties that serviced the rig or owned the cab or trailer.
