With large, 18-wheeler trucks, it’s critical that all working parts function properly, otherwise there is a risk of not only the truck driver getting hurt, but also any other driver on the road. Sadly, accidents are caused regularly by parts defects, such as problems with a truck’s braking system. Brake defects can lead to serious truck accidents very quickly, as a driver most often will lose control of the vehicle and not be able to stop like he or she would if the truck did not have a brake problem. However, while the effects of a dangerous truck accident can be devastating, sometimes victims can obtain financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
