When Brake Failure Leads to a Truck Accident

According to the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), commercial truck accidents happen most often on:

  • The 710 at the 60 in the East LA Interchange, which sees about 7.2 crashes every year; and
  • The 5 between the 710 and the 10 in the East LA Interchange, which sees about 6.6 accidents every year.

SCAG identified human error as the leading cause of these accidents. Still, faulty brakes remain an issue when human error is absent. In fact, brake failure has become such a widespread problem that the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) created a national Brake Safety Week to help tackle it.

Seeking Compensation for a Brake Failure Accident

Victims of brake failure accidents have the right to seek compensation for their losses, or damages, through a civil lawsuit. The victim’s legal team may hold a trucking company and/or its operators liable if the following factors caused injury or harm to people or property:

  • Failed to conduct regular inspections of its trucks’ brake systems;
  • Failed to train its employees on how to properly inspect truck brake systems; or
  • Failed to hire a capable mechanic to inspect the brake systems.
  • Brake system failure resulting in an accident or harm.

A truck parts manufacturer may also be held liable in the event that it sold defectively designed or manufactured brakes. These companies have a legal obligation to ensure their brakes are safe before they make it on the road, and they can be held accountable should they fail to fulfill this obligation.

If you are unsure who is liable for the brake failure accident that injured you, our Los Angeles trial lawyers can help. We have the skills needed to investigate cases involving any potentially liable party.
