Defective Truck Equipment Can Have Legal Consequences
Semi truck defects come in many forms, including:
- Defective tires and tire blowouts
- Defective brakes
- Defective coupling devices
Defects like these can lead to serious truck accidents. If there is something wrong with the coupling device that connects the trailer, the trailer could come loose and collide with oncoming traffic. A brake defect could lead to rear-end collisions. Defective tires could cause a semi truck to topple over and hit any vehicles in its path.

Was It A Defect Or Improper Maintenance?
