If the cause of the accident was due to brake failure, the likelihood of receiving a settlement is increased due to the fact that braking systems are highly regulated. Braking systems on trucks in particular, are governed by special federal regulations to ensure that they have a specific amount of braking power. If you were involved in an accident with a car whose brakes fall below these standards, you can base a claim on the premise that the design or the manufacturing of the brakes was inferior. This type of case would be better categorized under product liability instead of the personal injury category. You also have grounds for legal action if the trucking company did not do the necessary maintenance required for braking systems. In order to minimize brake replacement costs, there are some truck drivers who will purposely disconnect the front brakes. This may appear to be a foolish thing to do but many truckers prefer using the transmission or the trailer brakes to reduce speed. Doing something so negligent as to disconnect a braking system just to save some money could elevate a case from a basic personal injury negligence claim to a major international tort. If you find yourself the victim of such an act, your recourse would be to bring both the trucking company as well as the truck driver to court.
