Runaway Truck Crash

The old saying that what goes up must come down describes a painful reality for big truck drivers. When they drive their big rigs up a hill, eventually they will have to drive it back down. The problem is, big trucks can carry up to 80,000 pounds, causing gravity to make the trip down the hill a great deal faster. In some cases, a truck's brakes fail and they must seek the help of a runaway truck ramp. But what happens when there is no ramp? In many cases, the truck must literally run into something to stop, causing a runaway truck crash. If that "something" is cars with people in them, the cost is far too high. However, the liability for such a runaway truck crash can rest, at least in part, with the manufacturer. If you are the victim of a runaway truck crash, be sure to call a truck accident lawyer to help you determine if you are entitled to compensation.
