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.

This small piece of equipment is mandatorily installed in all trucks and continuously records data regarding the truck. If preserved, it could provide invaluable information regarding the conditions of the truck leading up to the accident. This could involve the speed at which the truck was driving, the condition of the truck immediately after the accident and how much of the brake was applied during the accident itself.

  • Saar Swartzon was very hardworking and courteous.

    “Saar Swartzon was very hardworking and courteous. The physical therapist he recommended was beyond excellent, and he coordinated all my visits and appointments. If I ever need a personal injury attorney, he will definitely be my man”

    Arash B.

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”
