Massachusetts Trailer Malfunction Attorneys
Trucking companies are expected to follow certain protocols when hitching and loading the trailer compartments of their commercial trucks. When these protocols are ignored or not followed correctly, dangerous accidents can happen. Massachusetts trucking employees who improperly load trailers create opportunities for cargo to cause an accident by shifting or unevenly distributing weight. Additionally, manufacturers and owners who do not ensure that trailer gear such as hitches and brake lights are properly functioning may be liable for any damage caused as a result of the faulty product.
At the Massachusetts office of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our trucking negligence attorneys know how dangerous accidents involving commercial trucks can be. This is why we work to bring those who violate your rights to safety to justice for their negligent actions.
Federal and state agencies have imposed certain safety standards and practices on those involved in the trucking industry in an attempt to make roads safer for everyone on them. Unfortunately, there are truck manufacturers and companies that try to save time or money by skipping important steps in ensuring the quality and safety of their trucks. If you have been a victim of such companies, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the following:
- Pain and Suffering
- Lost Wages
- Medical and Rehabilitation Costs
By filing a personal injury claim, you can take the first step in holding those responsible parties accountable for their actions that led to your accident and injury.
