Towing is a popular, yet risky, activity that may put other motorists on our streets and highways at risk. Towing mechanisms can malfunction. Sudden swerving necessitated by other cars making illegal lane changes can cause a towed trailer to jackknife and pose danger to other cars, trucks and motorcycles. A car or truck pulling a trailer or boat cannot stop or turn as adeptly as a vehicle that is not pulling anything.
Your towing-related accident and injury may have happened when you were in a vehicle towing a trailer or boat or when you were behind or beside such a vehicle. The towing vehicle may have been pulling a horse trailer, a sailboat, a motorboat, a flatbed trailer loaded with riding lawn mowers, or a trailer for hauling furniture or other heavy items, or may be an RV pulling a car. The towed part may have come loose or the vehicle and trailer may have flipped during a tire blowout. The contents of the trailer may have spilled onto the highway.
These are but a few scenarios that frequently occur when one vehicle pulls a load of any kind. It is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer review the facts of your case and, if possible, determine whose negligence caused the accident. Was it a driver, an equipment manufacturer or installer, a government entity responsible for road maintenance or someone else?
