Quality control issues associated with commercial trucks are important: The commercial vehicle is highly regulated within the manufacturing industry as well as its scheduled maintenance. For example, there are specific Federal laws applicable to the truck’s air brake system. Should a defect occur, within the truck or with respect to any of the commercial truck’s components and that defect is found to have caused the accident, then the person driving the passenger automobile has a claim against the commercial truck’s manufacturer. He or she may also have a claim against the supplier and the company which takes care of repairs and scheduled maintenance on the commercial truck. There is a specific set of laws that make such claims possible. The underlying legal theory is referred to as “Product Liability.”
The preceding detail is one of the many details, taken under consideration and relative to a case involving a passenger vehicle and a commercial truck.
