The Dangers of a Cab-Over Engine Truck

At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP, we help people who have been injured due to defective cab-over-engine trucks.

Occupant Safety Compartment

In most vehicles, there is a crush or crumple zone outside of the occupant safety compartment that absorb crash energy as they crumple, thereby reducing the forces available to injure the vehicle occupants.

Cab-over-engine trucks designs sometimes do not include an occupant safety compartment or a crush zone. Thus, the only structure between an occupant's lower body and the injury-producing crash forces is some sheet metal.

Our lawyers have handled numerous auto product liability cases and are adept at identifying liability and valuing cases. We will work closely with you to determine the cause of your injury and who was at fault.
