Trailer Defects Cause Accidents on Texas Roadways

A very common sight in Texas is Gooseneck Trailers being pulled by pick-up trucks. Some manufacturers of Gooseneck Trailers have had their trailers recalled because of the risk of brake failures and the potential for very serious accidents and injuries. The trailer recall was announced in April 2012. The trailers involved in the recall had Dexter axle electric/hydraulic brake actuator pumps that may fail.

Accidents involving Gooseneck Trailers can be just as deadly as 18-wheeler accidents because of the weight being pulled. With the additional weight of the trailer and load it is possible that the mass and momentum of the truck will cause the driver to be unable to stop. Therefore, it is important that the trailer be equipped with functioning breaks.

It is important to investigate any accident involving a trailer to determine whether the trailer was overloaded and whether the brakes were working properly.
