Homestead Braking Ability

Commercial truck drivers rely on their air brakes in order to stop in time at traffic lights and signals and in order to stop in time to avoid a car accident. Unfortunately, the size and force of trucks often put extra pressure on brakes and brake issues are a common cause of truck accidents across the country.

How Brakes Lead to Truck Accidents

There are many reasons why brake issues cause truck accidents:

  • Overweight trucks can put extra pressure on breaks, causing them to overheat and fail
  • Manufacturing defects and incorrect maintenance of trucks can cause brakes to fail
  • Truck drivers require extra training in order to operate brakes correctly, and if there is inadequate training or screening of truck drivers this can lead to incorrect braking

No matter what has caused a truck accident, if your accident seems to have occurred because the truck driver did not brake correctly, it is important to get answers. Consult with a personal injury attorney in Homestead as well as your insurance company. You may find that you have a legal claim that helps you pay for your injuries, lost wages, and other expenses. If you have had to take time away from work and you are facing mounting medical bills because of your injuries, you should at least find out whether you have a legal claim. It can help protect you against financial distress and potentially even bankruptcy.

Injuries Common in Truck Accidents

  • Head injuries
  • Burns
  • Disfigurement
