Steering Failure Can Be Lack of Maintenance
Truckers are required to perform inspections and the owner operator or trucking company that owns the truck has to ensure that it is mechanically sound. In addition, hauling overly heavy loads for too long a period of time may cause damage to the steering. When steering fails due to lack of maintenance or other forms of negligence, the driver and perhaps the trucking company may be liable for damages caused by an accident.
Steering Failure Due to Manufacturer Defect
Mechanical failures by the manufacturer can be present in any part of a vehicle, including the steering. The defect may be present in the design, materials used or during the manufacturing process.
