While many of the trucking accident cases we handle at The Gilbert Law Group involve the negligence of the trucking company and its driver, we also represent victims who were injured in a trucking accident because of a flaw in the design or manufacture of the truck.
The truck safety defect cases we often see involve defective parts, such as:
Defective designs in large trucks increase the risk for collisions causing serious injuries and fatalities out on the American roadway. Tens of thousands of people are injured in trucking accidents each year, and over 5,000 people are killed.
When you or your loved one is suffering the debilitating injuries that 18-wheeler accidents can cause, you need a knowledgeable and experienced truck accident attorney on your side. You need an auto product liability lawyer who can analyze the safety systems in the truck to make a difference in getting the results you deserve in your legal case.
At The Gilbert Law Group, in the course of investigating and litigating your case, we often uncover design flaws and fixes that will save lives when corrected.
In one of our recent cases, we were able to demonstrate how dangerous the fuel tank design was. We also helped design a guard for the fuel tanks that would have prevented the rupture and fireball. Our sophisticated computer modeling showed that our guard design would have protected the tank from rupturing in the accident. We are not aware of any law firm in the United States able to do this design work. It is our contribution to the safety of American consumers driving next to these big rigs on the highway.
Based in Denver, our nationally recognized auto product liability attorneys and team can represent injury victims nationwide.
