Truck Defect Accidents in North Carolina

Edwards Kirby has a long history of advocating for consumers’ rights, including product liability lawsuits involving defective truck parts. Large trucks, including big rigs, flatbeds, tractor-trailers, and other commercial vehicles, can cause catastrophic damage if they are involved in any type of traffic accident. When these accidents are caused by defective or dangerous parts, our attorneys know how to hold at-fault manufacturers, distributors, or dealers accountable. We seek justice for the injured and for the families of those who have lost their lives due to truck defects.

If you were involved in an accident with a large truck, it will be important to analyze every aspect of the collision to determine its cause. When you work with a Raleigh truck accident attorney at Edwards Kirby, you can rest assured that we will use our resources to the fullest extent to investigate your accident. If we discover that the truck malfunctioned because of a defective part, we will work to hold the manufacturer or other at-fault party accountable.

Defective Truck Parts

Every single part of a semi-truck or 18-wheeler must be manufactured and maintained properly if it is to function as it should. A single defect in the design or manufacturing process of a truck part could lead to a catastrophic traffic accident if the truck operator cannot properly maneuver the vehicle.

Our team handles personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits involving such truck defects as:

  • Brake light or headlight malfunction
  • Braking component defects
  • Power steering failure
  • Tire blowouts and other tire defects
  • Hydraulic system defects
  • Strap and tie down defects, affecting the truck’s cargo
  • Engine failure or malfunction
  • Coupling or hitch defects
