As some of the largest vehicles on the road, big rigs can cause a lot of damage in the event of a truck accident. There are many different causes of truck accidents, including distracted driving, tired driving, and dangerous roads. Another cause is failure to maintain the vehicle, where an 18-wheeler malfunctions on the road because of poor mechanical maintenance. Accidents such as these could be easily prevented, but they happen nonetheless, and victims have every right to fight for compensation. In you battle for the financial recompense you both need and deserve, a Coral Gables personal injury lawyer from our firm can stand by your side and guide you through the process.
Should a big rig be driven without proper maintenance, any number of problems could occur. Some are more detailed, involving things such as electrical wiring or engine trouble. However, some of the most common problems could be easily avoided. For example, when a commercial truck blows a tire, the driver could lose control and swerve off the road or jackknife. Brake failure is common, as well, and is a main cause of "runaway trucks." These maintenance failures often cause accidents involving other vehicles, and since such accidents may have been avoided through proper inspection and preventative care, personal injury victims should speak with a Miami personal injury attorney to find out what legal options are available to them.
