Mechanical Defect

Truck Accidents Caused by Mechanical Defects

Over 40 Years' Experience

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.

Have Questions?

We Have Answers!
  • How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Missouri?
    Every state has a time limit for how long you have to file a personal injury claim called the statute of limitations. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is five years from the date the injury occurred or could have been reasonably discovered. If you fail to file your personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires then the defendant will most certainly file a motion to dismiss the case.
  • What does a personal injury lawyer do?

    Personal injury lawyers are legal experts dedicated to helping those who have been injured in an accident navigate the complex issues on their road to recovery. They specialize in tort law, protecting the rights of victims and ensuring they receive compensation for their suffering.

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.
