California truck accidents can be more serious than other car accidents, since trucks are much bigger and in many cases carry heavy loads. These factors often lead to significant impacts. One of the main causes of truck accidents has to do with defective brakes and brake failure.

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in a truck accident, you are probably wondering what caused the crash. It can be difficult to determine who was at fault, which is why you should talk with a lawyer experienced in these types of cases.

Let’s take a look at who may be to blame:
  • The driver’s negligence could have played a role in the failure of the braking system on the truck.
  • The company that loaded the truck may be responsible. They could have overloaded the truck, making it difficult for the driver to slow down or stop in time.
  • In some cases, it is the party in charge of the maintenance of the brakes. Often, the maintenance duties fall on the owner-operator.
  • It may be proven that the brakes were defective. This means that the manufacturer of the brakes may be liable for the truck accident.
