Dangers of Defective Truck Equipment
Truck Accident Victim Litigation in Orange County
truck accident occurs, it is the natural instinct of most people to point the blame on
one of the drivers involved. In some cases, this is a completely valid reaction.
Some of the common causes of devastating truck accidents include:
- Tired drivers
- Drivers who are distracted
- Improper training
This, however, is not always the answer.
Injured in an accident caused by defective equipment?
In some accidents, the party to blame might not have been directly involved
in the accident. For example, what occurs when an accident is caused by
defective equipment? While we assume all trucks are built to the highest
of standards, this is not always the reality. Should a product on the
truck be defective, it can be a ticking time bomb - and when it goes off,
you can be the one who suffers.
It is not unheard of for automobiles to have defective parts. The news
has spent a considerable amount of time over the years covering large
factory recalls of products that range from braking units to steering
wheels. It is therefore no surprise that trucks can be prone to something
of this nature as well. The problem, however, is that while
defective products can cause accidents in a large truck in the same manner that they can
in a car, the accidents involving trucks are often much more complex and
can cause exponentially more serious injuries to those who are involved.
