Truck Accidents Caused by Defective Brakes
Brakes are one of the most important safety features on a tractor-trailer, and with 18 wheels and 18 sets of brakes, there are many opportunities for something to go wrong.
When something fails, it can mean catastrophe for other motorists.
Brakes are so critical for truck safety that federal regulations require truck drivers to inspect their brakes each time before they head out on the road.
Time and cost restraints, however, sometimes cause trucking companies and truckers to cut corners with maintenance and repairs.
