If a poorly designed or manufactured part on a commercial truck was responsible for your accident, we can help prove negligence and fight for fair compensation.
Manufacturers of truck components have a legal responsibility to design and produce safe products. If a truck part has a manufacturing or design defect, the manufacturer may be held legally accountable without the injured party having to prove a specific act of negligence or wrongdoing. The defect and fact it caused injury is enough to hold them accountable.
If a manufacturer recalled any of these parts after discovering defects, and the trucking company did nothing to replace the truck part, the trucking company may also ultimately be held responsible for any injuries that were sustained.
The manufacturer may be liable under a practice area known as product liability.
Bad brakes can be the cause of any accident, but the size of a big rig alone is cause for extra concern. It also takes a truck longer to stop than it does a commercial vehicle; often, when accidents are reconstructed, the stopping distance is proven to be longer for commercial trucks. It is for this reason that the brakes are extremely important to maintaining the safety of the vehicle.
Even if a truck is not causing the accident, bad brakes can make it worse.
The truck driver, however, is likely not to blame when it comes to faulty brakes. Truck maintenance workers are responsible for ensuring that the brakes are in good working condition before the truck drives anywhere. If your accident was caused by a truck with faulty brakes then you may be able to file a claim against the truck maintenance worker.
Brakes are one of the most critical components on a big rig—and when they stop working, the results can be disastrous. If you were injured in an accident involving brake failure, we can help.Learn More
