Why is Braking Ability an Issue in Trucking Accidents in Hollywood?

Commercial truck drivers are especially trained to handle the air brakes on large commercial vehicles. These larger trucks brake much differently than traditional cars. Truck drivers must have the ability to brake correctly and to allow the larger truck enough time to brake safely. There are many reasons why a truck driver may not brake correctly:

  • Lack of training and experience
  • Brake failure
  • Underestimating the time required to brake a large truck
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
Who Is Liable In A Truck Accident Involving Brake Problems?

Depending on the specifics of your traffic accident, there may be many people responsible:

  • The motor carrier
  • The truck driver
  • The person or party who is responsible for maintaining the vehicle
  • The brake manufacturer or truck manufacturer

Finding all liable parties is important. If there's more than one liable party involved in your accident, you want to hold all possible parties accountable. Having multiple liable parties can increase the chances that you get fair compensation that will help you pay for more of your medical bills, lost income, and other expenses. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to find out exactly what happened in a truck accident. If you have been injured, it is important to work with an attorney. Personal injury attorneys in Hollywood and other communities work with local expert witnesses, accident reconstruction experts, private investigators, and other professionals who can help you get to the bottom what happened in an accident.
