Mack Trucks is recalling certain model trucks produced from 2002-2005. The front axle beam on the affected trucks may develop fatigue cracks. These cracks could result in a complete failure of the front axle.
Texas Drivers recently involved in an accident involving a Mack Truck should investigate whether a failure of the front axle may have contributed to or caused the collision.
Any auto accident with a Heavy Duty Truck can have devastating results. Even the weight of an unloaded truck can be several times the weight of a passenger car or pick-up truck. Wrecks involving 18-wheelers, heavy duty transportation trucks, or any specialized cargo carrier, are more complicated and involve a deep understanding of the Federal Regulations which are administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) much more than an ordinary auto accident. Our firm has particular knowledge and experience with these types of cases, and if you or a family member has suffered as a result of the negligence of a trucking company or its driver, we can help.
