More Than Big Rigs Are Involved In Truck Accidents

When most people think of truck accidents, they likely imagine a tractor-trailer causing a massive amount of damage to a smaller car or truck. There isn't necessarily anything wrong with this assumption as events like this happen every day. These collisions often cause one or more participants to lose their lives. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's Analysis Division, 4,889 buses and large trucks were involved in fatal crashes in 2017. It should not come as a surprise that the number was a 9-percent increase from 2016.

Many people are lucky enough to live through the incidents though. However, they are usually left with substantial damages such as spinal injuries, broken or fractured bones, traumatic brain injuries, and more. In other words, the individuals tend to have a long road to recovery ahead of them. Although big rigs are the first thing that pops into a person's mind upon hearing about a truck accident, different types of trucks can cause the same issues.

There are various kinds of large machines on our roadways that can do the same amount of damage. Just take a moment to think about it, there are dump trucks, cement mixers, agricultural vehicles, pump trucks, and many others. These units are bigger and heavier than traditional cars. Hence, it is easy to see why getting into an accident with one of them can be so dangerous.

The attorneys even go as far as to try and prove the victim was to blame for the collision.

Know About The NHTSA Campaign Number 19V152000

On some occasions, more than one party may be responsible for the accident. For instance, if a piece is defective and malfunctions, the truck or part manufacturer could be held liable for the damages. So, know about this issue just in case you are involved in an accident with one of these vehicles. Terex Advance Mixer, Inc is getting ready to recall about 98, 2018-2019 Front Discharge Concrete Mixer Trucks. The mixers came with Meritor EX225 disc brake calipers.

Meanwhile, the drive pins may have cracked during the assembly process. What does that mean exactly? Well, if the pins fracture fully, the truck will pull hard to one side while braking, which can cause the driver to lose control. Thus, the risk of crash increases. The organization is still working on the remedy, and there is not a notification schedule as of yet. If you believe one of these units led to your crash and injuries, contact our office to get to the bottom of the situation.
