North Miami Beach Braking Failure

While brake failure can occur with any vehicle, large commercial trucks have more problems associated with brakes than most other vehicles. Partly, this is because big rigs and tractor-trailers put more pressure on their brakes due to their large size and heavy cargo. In part, it is because commercial trucks use air brakes rather than the types of brakes that passenger vehicles use. In any case, when braking failure occurs in North Miami Beach or when truck drivers use incorrect braking techniques, tragedy and devastation are the common result.

  • Manufacturer defects
  • Incorrect maintenance of breaks
  • Incorrect braking technique
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Inadequate truck driver screening or training
