Do I Need a Mechanical Defect Lawyer?

A serious injury can alter the course of someone’s life. Dealing with the physical pain, medical treatment, recovery process, and any new limitations that an injury may cause are often the primary focus of accident victims. Add to this list the stress of medical expenses, and it’s no wonder that securing legal representation can become an afterthought.

A good injury lawyer plays a crucial role in an accident victim’s recovery process. Having legal representation will take the burden of filing paperwork and preparing for court dates off your shoulders. Additionally, your lawyer will know how much compensation you are eligible for based on the specifics of your accident, and can help ensure that the responsible parties are held accountable.

Don’t try to take on the trucking company’s corporate lawyers on your own. People who represent themselves in their personal injury case may receive some money from the responsible party, but it will likely be far less than what they could receive with a lawyer’s help. When you are facing an expensive recovery process following an accident you didn’t cause, don’t take any chances when it comes to defending your rights — get the help of an experienced mechanical defect attorney.

Liability in Mechanical Defect Accidents

Accidents caused by mechanical defects can occur in a variety of ways, and may involve different liable parties. Some parties that may be liable for a mechanical defect accident include:

  • Trucking Companies: Truck companies have a responsibility to ensure their vehicles are properly maintained. If a trucking company is negligent and does not perform regular maintenance on their vehicles, an accident that occurs because of a defect could be their fault.
  • Truck Manufacturers: The companies that build trucks may be responsible if they built and delivered a defective truck. The defect could be introduced in several points during the production chain. If the design was defective, the designers may be liable; if the design was fine but the truck was manufactured incorrectly, someone in the manufacturing team may be responsible. Either way, you can likely pursue compensation from the maker of the truck.
  • Maintenance Workers: If the truck company hired another company or contractor to perform maintenance on their trucks, and the maintenance worker did not properly perform their duties, that worker or company may be responsible for your accident.

A lawyer can investigate the details of your accident to determine the exact cause and identify the responsible party. They can then help you pursue a successful claim for compensation.
