Cincinnati Truck Brake Malfunction Attorneys

Because of their size, large trucks can be more dangerous than regular vehicles on the highway in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, 18-wheelers cause thousands of car accidents and injuries every year in the United States. Many of these accidents are caused by some kind of mechanical malfunction, such as brake failure. When a truck’s brakes fail, all drivers on the road share the danger of serious injury.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident because of an 18-wheeler’s brake malfunction, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help pay for the costs associated with your injury. Contact the experienced Cincinnati truck brake malfunction attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, by calling 513-321-7733 today to see how we can help you.

Dangers of Brake Malfunction

A truck’s brakes are a driver’s first defense against losing control of the vehicle, so when those brakes fail, this defense disappears and the likelihood of an accident increases significantly. Moreover, because a driver may be unable to slow the vehicle, the severity of any accidents that do occur is likely to increase as well. Some of the dangers posed by a truck’s brake failure include:

  • Inability to come to a complete stop
  • Inability to slow to avoid a crash or other obstacle ahead
  • Loss of control around a turn
  • Attainment of dangerous speeds when traveling on a steep grade

The chances of an injury resulting from an accident with an 18-wheeler are very high, since trucks are so large and heavy, and it is important to be aware of these dangers when sharing the road with truck drivers.
