St. Louis Defective Truck Equipment Lawyer

Defective truck equipment is a common cause of truck collision accidents. Sometimes, the trucking company or its driver is responsible for a defect that leads 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 exactly who is responsible. That is why it is so important to have a skilled truck collision 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 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 is compromised.
