The Importance of Regular Service Checks
While many people are concerned about the way their driving affects their safety on the road, few realize the importance of proper car maintenance in automotive safety. A vehicle that hasn’t been properly maintained is far more likely to suffer engine failure, blown tires, transmission problems, and other serious issues on the road, increasing the likelihood of a serious accident. Having your car checked and serviced on a regular basis can help reduce this risk.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of a mechanic or service technician, you may be able to sue for financial compensation.

Servicing Your Vehicle
Modern cars are so much more reliable and technologically advanced today that we often forget that our cars have mechanical parts under constant stress. Engines, transmissions, wheels, axles, and even your windshield wipers are being used for thousands of miles worth of wear. If something large fails, you could be in serious danger.
Here are some tips on how often you should have certain checks run on your car if you want it to stay running as long as possible:
- Change your oil every 3,000 miles
- Have your wheels aligned and balanced every 12,000 miles
- Rotate your tires every 6,000-10,000 miles
- Get a tune-up every 3-5 years
If you follow these tips, your car will almost certainly run better longer, and you are much less likely to get in a serious accident.
