Truck Accidents Caused by Mechanical Defects

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 experienced Springfield truck accident lawyers at Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C.

Common Mechanical Defects

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.
