Potential types of truck defects
Trucks are complex vehicles, with numerous parts and mechanics. When any one of them fails to work properly, the resulting injuries can prove devastating for the victim and the family. The attorneys of HLM have the knowledge and skill to handle cases involving numerous types of defects, including:
- Faulty brakes. The weight and size of a truck requires adequate time and distance to make a safe stop. Faulty brakes hinder the driver from stopping the truck with enough time and distance to prevent accidents.
- Faulty rear guards. Trucks are equipped with rear guards to prevent other vehicles from being pinned underneath the truck in the event of a rear collision. When these mechanisms fail to perform correctly, a vehicle that rear-ends the truck may become crushed underneath its weight. This type of accident can severely injure the driver of the other vehicle.
- Faulty steering. The weight of a truck makes safe maneuvering a challenge for the driver. For this reason, a properly working steering mechanism is extremely important. A failed system can cause the operator to lose control of the vehicle.
- Defective couplings. Couplings attach the semi-trailer to the tractor or towing truck. These fittings are important to ensure that the towed unit stays secure. If the couplings fail and the trailer separates, an accident can result. The significant weight of the tractor and its cargo can cause significant injury.
