Truck and car collisions as a result of a defective are complicated cases. If you have been hurt in a collision, or a loved one passed away in a defective vehicle accident, you may be entitled to damages from the vehicle’s company, the operator of the car or truck, the manufacturer of the truck parts, and the businesses and technicians that performed maintenance on the car or truck. Before you make a statement to an insurance company or accept a settlement for your claim, get the legal assistance you deserve so you can ensure you are getting the full amount that is owed to you in your defective automobile case.
Since commercial trucks are so much larger than most vehicles, accidents involving big rigs, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers are much more likely to cause severe injury or death than accidents involving only small cars. If a defective part in a truck causes a collision, the manufacturer of the part may be held responsible. If the trucking business knew that there was a defective and/or hazardous part on the truck and did nothing to fix or replace the flawed part, the trucking business can also be held responsible.
