Dangers of Defective Truck Equipment

Truck Accident Victim Litigation in Orange County

When a 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.
