Causes Of Runaway Trailer Injury Accidents

It is crucial to exert a great level of caution when attaching a trailer to a commercial vehicle. If not properly fastened using adequate safety equipment, the results can be tragic. Proper lighting connections are also critical for traffic safety, and the tires and wheel bearings on the trailer must be periodically inspected, maintained and replaced to ensure safety for motorists sharing the road with tractor-trailers.

Runaway Trucks

In some instances, mechanical defects such as brake failure can result in a runaway truck situation, particularly on downhill stretches of highway. These situations often result in collisions with other vehicles, as well as in rollovers that spill debris or otherwise result in accidents.
