How can a truck part cause harm?

There are plenty of large trucks on the roadways of Missouri. When we talk about large trucks, we mean commercial vehicles such as:

  • Eighteen wheelers
  • Delivery trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • And more

Drivers of these vehicles almost always have to have a commercial driver’s license and specific training from a company. When these trucks are involved in a crash, there are often serious injuries. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were approximately 148,000 injuries and 4,761 fatalities due to large truck crash in the US during the latest reporting year.

Many of these incidents were caused by a defective part on a large truck. Due to the size and weight of these vehicles, a single defective part can lead to the driver losing control of the truck.

Some of the parts that are most often defective include:

  • The brakes – failure or misalignment of the brakes are a common cause of truck accidents. The brakes could have been faulty from the manufacturer, installed incorrectly, or not properly and regularly inspected. Brake systems also include an array of hoses and lines.
  • Tire problems – tires must be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure they are treated and inflated properly. Tires can affect the handling and stability of the truck.
  • Hydraulic issues – malfunctions of any hydraulic system in a truck can lead to the driver losing control of the vehicle.
  • Steering problems – defective steering can be the result of a bad ball joint or any part of the steering column.

These are just some examples of parts that can affect truck safety. In these cases, it can be difficult to determine who is liable – the part manufacturer, the truck company, a maintenance crew, etc.
