Inadequate Maintenance & Security

Georgia Inadequate Maintenance Lawyers

Accidents Caused by Poor Maintenance of Bad Highway Design

Trucking companies are in business to make money. Sometimes this is accomplished by delaying truck maintenance, often in violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. When inadequate maintenance contributes to a trucking accident, injured people should receive full compensation for their bills and injuries.

At the Augusta law firm of Wall Ellison LLC, our attorneys investigate truck accidents to determine the cause. When inadequate maintenance caused the accident, we undertake to obtain all damages our injured clients are entitled to recover from the trucking company and their insurance company. Our lawyers have many years of experience with cases such as these and will fight to protect your rights.

If you have been injured as a result of a trucking accident, you should speak with an attorney who can advise you about your rights and your options. Contact Wall Ellison in Augusta, Georgia to schedule a free initial consultation.

From Blowouts to Brake Failure

When 18-wheeler maintenance is delayed or never performed, the results can be catastrophic. We handle accidents resulting from maintenance issues such as these:

  • Failure to change tires at prescribed intervals or use of retreaded tires
  • Failure to inspect brakes
  • Failure to clean reflective tape and replace burned bulbs
  • Failure to test load restraints
  • Failure to conduct pre-trip inspections to identify pending safety issues

When additional strain from overloading is placed upon already weakened or defective truck mechanisms such as brakes and steering, truck drivers may be unable to stop or they are unable to control the vehicle. Additionally, maintenance issues can be compounded if the truck is traveling on a defective roadway or highway under construction. For example, Interstate 95 has seemingly been under construction since it opened. Poor truck maintenance and defective roads create a deadly combination.

When maintenance is an issue, we investigate the records of the truck to determine if inadequate maintenance contributed to the accident. We may also look at the age of the tires, whether the driver performed required pre-trip checks and determine the condition of the highway where the accident occurred. An examination of the truck itself may also be used to identify defective parts.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck, contact our law firm to learn more about truck maintenance and its role in accidents. Call Wall Ellison in Augusta, Georgia for a free initial consultation.

Did Inadequate Security Result in Your Attack?

Many people who are injured in an attack or assault do not realize that they may have a right to compensation for their injuries. Although the State may hold the attacker criminally responsible, we can help you hold the property owner or proprietor responsible for failing to keep their property or business premises safe for their customers.

The personal injury attorneys at Wall Ellison in Augusta, Georgia have served injured clients in Richmond County and throughout Georgia for over 30 years. Since the firm's founding in 1978, we have been dedicated to helping people obtain full compensation for their injuries. Contact us to evaluate if you have a case for premises liability and to understand your rights.

There are certain areas where attackers congregate for purse snatching or gang activity. It is a property owner's responsibility to keep their property reasonably safe for people who have a right to be there, and this responsibility includes keeping the property safe from this type of activity. While property owners cannot all risks from crime, they can make the property unappealing for criminal activity. In certain areas, this means having security cameras visible, having spot lights or other necessary lighting, having security guards on duty to make rounds, and other security measures.

If a property owner or a proprietor of a business is negligent in providing adequate security and someone is injured or attacked on the property as a result, the property owner or proprietor can be held civilly liable for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages incurred by the individual who was attacked.

We also handle other types of premises liability cases, including cases involving slip and fall and other accidents on someone else's property.

If you have been injured due to inadequate or negligent security on someone else's property or commercial property, contact the law firm of Wall Ellison for a free consultation to discuss your case.
