Manufacturing Negligence and Truck Accidents
Truck drivers trust that their vehicles’ parts will last over long distance trips. However, these parts can fail while a truck is still on the road. As a result, truck drivers may lose control over their massive vehicles. This loss of control can cause a collision with another motorist, leading to serious injuries for both parties.
Parties Responsible for Truck Defects
These accidents, caused by the mechanical malfunction of a part instead of driver error, can be prevented. The parties responsible for manufacturing and installing these parts should do everything they can to make sure they are properly made and installed in vehicles. Failure to do so can endanger the lives of many people on the road. The following parties may be to blame in these accidents:
- Workers who fabricated the truck’s parts
- Workers who installed the parts originally in the truck
- Mechanics who replaced or repaired the truck’s parts
If you have been injured in a collision caused by a malfunctioning truck, you may be eligible for compensation. To discuss your claim with a legal advisor, contact the Green Bay truck accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
