As with passenger vehicles, trucks must have working headlights. Sometimes defects occur and parts are recalled. Not fixing the defect places the burden of liability on the trucker or trucking company if an accident occurs.

Headlight Defects Cause Dangerous Situations
Imagine heading down the highway without being able to see an 80,000 truck heading your way in the opposite lane. Imagine further passing another vehicle on the same highway. The head-on accident that ensues can be horrific. The fault lies with the trucker’s lack of headlights.
If this was due to a defect that was not part of a product recall or warning, you may have a viable lawsuit against both the trucker and the manufacturer. If it was due to a lack of response by the trucker or the trucking company to a recall, both the trucker and the trucking company have liability.
Who Is Responsible for Defective Headlights?
The manufacturer or the designer may be held liable. Sometimes defects are known but the manufacturer fails to disclose it. If this happens, the manufacturer is liable.
