Defective Truck Equipment Claims in AZ
Many people assume that if a truck accident occurs, it is the fault of either driver. This, however, is not always the case. In fact, some truck accidents are the fault of neither party involved and could not have been avoided by their actions. When a truck has defective equipment, it can be almost impossible for an accident to be avoided and can usually be attributed to the manufacturer who placed the defective equipment on the market.
Some of the most common defective equipment malfunctions include:
- Tires that have a separating tread
- Brakes that give out at certain speeds or grades
- Steering wheels that lock up
If you have recently been injured in a truck accident that was caused by malfunctioning equipment such as this or if you have lost a loved one to a wrongful death caused by a situation such as this, it is vastly important that immediate steps are taken to secure the legal representation of a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible.
Black Box & Truck Accident Claims
By working with a knowledgeable lawyer, you will be able to take the necessary steps towards building a case and helping to protect your rights. An experienced attorney will know of such things as the existence of an Electronic Control Module – also referred to as the "black box." This is a device that is placed on a truck that records all data as the truck is in motion. This includes the speed at which the truck was travelling, the amount of time that the vehicle was driver, the average RPM and the performance of airbags.
All of this data can be invaluable in building a case, however, it is far too easy for the box to be tampered with or neglected and for the data to be lost forever. To ensure that this evidence is preserved so that it can be used in your case, it is extremely important that you do not hesitate to contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so that they can seek a protective order to get this data preserved.
