What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Truck Accident Attorney

Mechanical Defects/Malfunctions in Trucks

Truck accidents are one of the most dangerous things that can happen to a person, whether he is driving a smaller car that collides with a truck, or is in the truck himself. Any competent truck manufacturer should be aware of this, and should know how important it is to design and build reliable trucks with effective safety features.

Unfortunately mistakes still occur from time to time. At the offices of Jacksonville truck mechanical defect lawyer Don Guthrie, we are familiar with several potential causes of serious truck accidents, including:

Determining Responsibility

It is not always easy to get to the bottom of an accident and determine which party is truly to blame for what happened. The people who designed the trucks may have committed a grave oversight that made the vehicle dangerous. Perhaps the design is well done, but an error occurred when the vehicle was being assembled. Maybe the truck was built well, but the truck driver’s employers failed to adequately maintain a safe working environment for their employees.

One thing is certain: no one will volunteer to take responsibility. Every involved party will likely have an insurance company looking to place the blame somewhere else. If you have been injured in a truck accident caused by mechanical error, you need to make sure someone is fighting for you.
