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.

For example, should we believe that a defective product had a part in the accident that occurred, you can trust that we will exhaustively work to protect what is known as the "black box."

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.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • 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.”

  • Thank you again for all your help and dedication

    “Saar, I wanted to say thank you again for all your help and dedication. The settlement was a bonus. My main concern was my well-being. And I'm glad to say I am well. I do not have any back pain and I can enjoy watching and interacting with my daughter. One more time and on behalf of my family, thanks.”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”
