Mechanical Defect and Malfunction Truck Claims
Significantly outsized compared to the vehicles around them, large commercial trucks pose an inherent threat to others on the road. However, when they are regularly maintained and operated by experienced drivers, the likelihood of these trucks becoming involved in an accident can be substantially mitigated. Unfortunately, there is often little that truck drivers or mechanics can do to protect against a mechanical defect or malfunction to prevent an accident. In these circumstances, it is often the manufacturer of the part that failed that may be held liable for any resulting damages.
