Truck defect accidents often result in serious injuries. Take action
Truck defects and malfunctions can start off as seemingly small problems: a loose bolt, a worn tire. But given the massive size of such vehicles (a fully loaded tractor-trailer truck can weigh nearly 80,000 pounds) and the speeds trucks travel on busy highways such as I-65 and the Henry Watterson Expressway, truck defects and malfunctions can often produce significant accidents with serious injuries, including fatalities.
So many different mechanical things can go wrong on a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler. Each part of the truck must be properly designed, built, installed, and maintained in order for the vehicle to be as safe as possible. The failure of a manufacturer to do its part to provide a working vehicle is inexcusable.
Tire defects and brake malfunction are among the most common consequences of manufacturer negligence. But serious injuries to you and other innocent drivers top the list of what can happen when truck manufacturers fail to build a vehicle in a safe, responsible manner.
