Goldblatt Singer Knows Defective Truck Equipment Injury Cases
Defective truck equipment is a common cause of truck accidents. Sometimes, the truck driver is responsible for a defect that led to an accident. Other times, the truck manufacturer or truck part manufacturer can be held accountable. In these situations, it can be difficult to discover where the responsibility lies. That is why it is so important to have a skilled injury attorney. We can obtain the truck driver’s log or the truck’s “black box” to investigate the driver’s actions. We can also investigate whether any defects were discovered during required safety inspections at truck scales scattered across U.S. interstates.
Some of the most common truck defects that lead to accidents are:
- Tire Blowouts - When tire tread is worn down, they must be rotated or replaced. If not, tires can blow out on the road and cause serious accidents.
- Defective Cargo Restraints - Improperly restrained or shifting cargo could throw off the entire balance of the truck. Cargo straps and other restraints must be carefully monitored to detect wear and tear.
- Broken Lights - Commercial trucks are required to be equipped with headlights, tail lights and lights along the side. When even one of these lights is broken, safety during travel is compromised.
