The brakes of any vehicle are essential safety features that provide necessary driving functions, such as slowing down and stopping. On a large, 18-wheeler truck, brakes can be even more important, as an accident caused by defective truck brakes has an increased chance of causing more damage than a smaller vehicle if a driver loses control. Unfortunately, some of these accidents are caused by the negligence of another party, such as a trucking company or brake manufacturer.
