Cowpens, SC - Semi-Truck Pileup Crash on I-85 Causes Injuries

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), there were 106,821 accidents involving commercial transportation vehicles in the United States in 2018. Nearly 4,500 of the crashes were fatal ones. Any form of irresponsible, reckless, or careless driving may have catastrophic and disastrous repercussions due to the size and weight of these vehicles.

Instead of a careless driver, faulty truck components may cause accidents. These could include issues with the tires, brakes, lighting, improper maintenance, etc. Pre-trip inspections gone wrong might be to fault. These flaws may sometimes give rise to a case of action against the producer, distributor, or maintenance facility that fixed the vehicle.
