5 Truck Tire Separation Caused Crash with Severe Injuries to Motorist – $650,000 Jury Verdict
Most trucking wrecks are caused by inattentive or reckless truckers but sometimes an equipment failure can cause a crash. A trucking company or manufacturer can be held liable. In a case that went to trial, a MACK truck with worn tires experienced a “sudden” tread separation and crashed into our client’s car. The woman’s leg was broken in two places. Not only did the injury require the insertion of a metal rod, plate, and screws, but she was unable to return to work.
