Truck Tire Defects
Though truck drivers are required to undergo training and to maintain specialized licensing, there is no amount of preparation that can teach them how to prevent an accident caused by a truck defect or malfunction. Tire defects are among the most common causes of such accidents; they have the capacity to render an 18-wheeler uncontrollable in an instant, endangering the safety of all who are near.
If you have been involved in a truck accident that may have been caused by a truck tire defect, then you may be entitled to file a legal action against the responsible parties. The damages incurred can easily exceed insurance policy maximums, so this may be your best option. Contact the Cedar Rapids truck accident lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424.
A successful lawsuit can gain you financial compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Automobile repairs
- Lost wages
- Physical Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
Auto insurance policies are supposed to protect you financially in the event of an accident. Sadly, it is important to remember that they are created by a profit-driven company whose aim is to secure their own bottom line. As a result, the policy limits may be too low to meet all your needs, or you may receive a settlement offer that is not fully to your advantage.
