Truck accidents tend to be complex and proving the cause of an accident
is no simple task. In some instances, truck accidents are caused by manufacturing
errors, faulty parts, and defective systems within the truck. Unfortunately,
malfunctions within a truck will often result in collisions with other
vehicles and cause serious damage to the roadways, other vehicles, and
all motorists involved. Some common defects and malfunctions that can
cause serious accidents are brake failure, faulty lights, tire deterioration
and roadway blowouts, and broken or missing mirrors.
However, accidents that stem from defects or malfunctions are not always
random or inevitable. In fact, many truck defects are overlooked and allowed
to persist as a result of disorganization and irregular maintenance. Examples
of negligent oversights include: turning a blind eye to known defects
in vehicles, overloading the trucks, and creating structural weaknesses
that did not previously exist. If you have been involved in a truck accident
stemming from defects or mechanical failures, you may be able to pursue
compensation for damages from various “gatekeepers” who were
charged with ensuring that the truck in question was properly maintained,
functional, and safe to operate.
In the aftermath of a
truck accident, manufacturers can be held accountable in some cases. Manufacturers can
be held responsible for design flaws, manufacturing defects, and failure
to effectively communicate warnings and instructions to drivers and trucking
companies. If you have been harmed in a truck accident that occurred as
