Taking Action after Truck Accidents that are Caused by Brake Defect

Even if trucking companies routinely perform comprehensive rounds of maintenance on their vehicles, there is little that they can do to prevent accidents that are caused by malfunctioning or otherwise defective braking systems in their trucks. Keeping that in mind, it is usually the company responsible for designing or manufacturing the failed brake system that bears liability for the truck accidents they cause.

Claiming Compensation for an Accident Caused by Tire Defect

Once you have reason to believe that the truck that hit you only did so as the result of a defective or malfunctioning brake system—or if your accident was made worse by the brake system—you should reach out to an attorney. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to pursue compensation to cover the costs of your recovery, including but not limited to the following:

  • The costs of your medical and rehabilitative care
  • The amount of income you have to go without during recovery
  • The emotional anguish you have experienced

Though the prospect of taking on large companies in these cases can seem overwhelming, our legal team will be there to help you work through each and every aspect of the claims process.
