Truck Drivers are at risk every time they step into a truck because the cab of the truck they are driving can easily be crushed in a rollover. While manufacturers have long know of this problem, little has been done about it. The fix is cheap and inexpensive, yet the manufacturer’s refuse to admit responsibility despite government data and lawsuits which have highlighted the problem.
If someone you know was injured or killed in a cab crush, whether multiple vehicles were involved or just a single vehicle accident, you should immediately act to preserve the tractor. Without the cab there is little a lawyer can do to bring a case. Trucking company insurance companies know this, frequently destroying the tractor after a wreck. This is why it is critical to send a spoliation letter to preserve evidence. Please see my earlier post for an example.
