Equipment failure.

Faulty parts and equipment can range from poorly-made tires to malfunctioning brakes and wiring systems. The makers of these defective truck parts could be liable for injury costs if they played a role in the crash.


Road work can cause changes in grading, narrowed lanes, gravel spills, improperly-placed barrels, and other problems that can force truckers too close to passenger cars or cause them to lose control of the rig.

Road conditions.

A poorly-designed road can force trucks around tight corners, down steep hills, or onto narrow shoulders to avoid a crash. Dirt roads or highways covered in potholes are even more dangerous when covered by ice or snow that the local municipality failed to remove in a timely manner.
