Truck Brake Failure
Brake Failure Can Cause Accidents
If a truck’s brake fails, the result can be devastating. A speeding truck with failed brakes will mow down anything and everything that comes in contact with it. Trucking companies must comply with strict regulatory guidelines regarding trucking equipment maintenance, including brake maintenance. But brake failures still occur. Trucking companies in an attempt to minimize expenses and maximize profits fail to provide regular maintenance. Brake failure can also happen if the driver fails to perform required pre-trip checks.
Only a detailed investigation will identify brake failure as the cause of a truck accident. Sometimes, the brake failure may have resulted from a defective part. In such cases, the manufacturer of the brake and the defective part and all others involved the chain of commerce can be made to pay compensation to the victim. Our lawyers have the expertise and skills required to get the victims of truck accidents the compensation they deserve.
