Commercial trucks such as big rigs, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers are extremely large and complex vehicles. Like other motor vehicles, trucks require routine maintenance, inspection and care to ensure that all parts are in safe and working order.
With millions of trucks on the road, truck accidents happen on a daily basis. Although majority of commercial truck drivers are safe drivers who adhere to the rules of the road, there are times wherein it is the equipment or truck mechanisms that do not work properly.
If a critical piece of equipment or system on a truck fails to function properly, the results can be dangerous. The situation can be especially catastrophic if the truck is traveling down a road at a high speed.
A trucking company and their drivers must be responsible for properly maintaining their trucks brake systems, suspension, steering and tires. Without proper truck maintenance, these parts may fail. Some companies keep large fleets of trucks in constant service rotation, which can make it difficult to properly maintain them in good working order. All trucking companies, however, are required to only let safe vehicles out on the road.
Sometimes, truck components or parts may have been defectively designed, manufactured or even installed. In such instances, the product manufacturer may also be held responsible for these accidents because of their defective product. Regardless of whether an accident was caused by a defective design or poor maintenance, however, the failure of truck equipment or systems may result in devastating consequences.
Trucking accidents can be a complicated matter to deal with on your own. If you were badly injured in a truck accident caused by equipment failure, it would be best to speak with an experienced attorney who can properly assess your case. An attorney from Grossman Law Firm should be able to gather the necessary documents and evidence to support your claim.
