Iowa Mechanical Defects Lawyers
Trucks and 18-wheelers are powerful vehicles that must only be operated with the utmost care. However, no matter how carefully a truck driver may conduct his or her vehicle, mechanical malfunctions can quickly cause a loss of control and a dangerous, runaway vehicle. This can hurt both the truck driver and the other drivers nearby.
Semi trucks and 18-wheelers are heavy, bulky vehicles, and wrecks involving these trucks are often devastating. If you have been harmed as a result of a truck’s mechanical malfunction, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help you with your recovery.

Types of Dangerous Mechanical Defects
Mechanical defects occur when a truck manufacturer or mechanic improperly installs a part or system of the vehicle. This can include putting in the wrong part or forgetting an important part of the system altogether. Mistakes like these can cause the failure of many important vehicle systems, such as:
- Electrical, such as signal lights
- Power train/engine
A recent study on truck crashes found that mechanical defects often go unreported. This means that careless manufacturers and mechanics often go unpunished for their potentially deadly errors.
By holding a faulty manufacturer or auto repair company responsible for their mistakes, you can help prevent future errors and accidents. If you were injured due to a truck’s mechanical defect, you should fight back against this negligence.
