Springfield Mechanical Defect Lawyers
When a commercial truck collides with a passenger automobile, the driver
and passengers in the passenger automobile usually suffer the greatest
harm. While many of these accidents occur because of driver negligence,
some of them occur because of mechanical defects within the commercial truck.
Depending upon the circumstances, it may be appropriate to hold either
the truck manufacturer or the trucking company accountable for the harm
that results from a crash associated with a mechanical defect. If you
or someone you love has been hurt in a collision with a commercial truck,
contact the Springfield truck accident lawyers at Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C.
When mechanical defects lead to trucking accidents, it is frequently the
case that one of the following might play a contributing role:
- Brake Malfunction
- Tire Defects
These failures are especially problematic for other motorists because they
effectively compromise a truck driver’s ability to control his or
her vehicle. Brake failure may make it impossible for a truck driver to
bring a vehicle to a stop or to slow sufficiently to avoid a collision;
tire defects can interfere with a truck’s ability to grip the road
surface and could conceivably cause a massive commercial vehicle to topple
over in the middle of traffic.
As the victim of a
caused by one or more mechanical defects affecting a commercial vehicle,
it is important that you understand your legal rights. Your medical bills,
vehicle repairs, and other damages may be compensable through a successful
legal action. Contact the Springfield personal injury attorneys of Strong-Garner-Bauer
