Defective Part

Retain a Truck Accident Injury Lawyer from the Doan Law Firm

Commercial 18-wheeler trucks are highly complex pieces of equipment. They are comprised of hundreds of parts, a combination of components that must be in prime condition in order for a big rig to function properly and safely. If a semi labors under a defective part, not only may the truck malfunction, the condition can cause an accident.

A defective part can be introduced into a semi in a number of different ways. It can be part of the original assembly process. A defective part can be added into a semi-truck as a replacement. A part can become defective through wear and tear and a failure of the owner or operator to perform proper inspections.

If you have learned, or fear, that a defective part in a semi-truck may have caused or contributed to an accident that involved you, a truck accident lawyer from The Doan Law Firm stands ready to assist you. Our nationwide law firm can be contacted right now by calling (800) 349-0000.

Responsible Parties in a Defective Part Truck Accident Injury Case

One key task for your truck accident injury attorney is ascertaining all of the parties responsible for causing or contributing to the accident. The starting point is likely to be the manufacturer of the part. In addition, any entity involved in the distribution of the part as well as the party that added the part to the vehicle will also be potential responsible parties. This could include the initial manufacturer of the semi-truck, depending on when the part was added.

Depending on the facts and circumstances at hand, the owner of the truck, or trucking company, may be a party deemed responsible for your injuries. The driver may also be held accountable. This can happen in one of two ways.

First, there are a considerable percentage of owners that also serve as operators of their trucks. Second, if the driver did not respond to a problem associated with a defective part in a reasonable manner, he or she might be included in the list of parties responsible for your injuries.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
