Massachusetts Truck Brake Malfunction Attorneys
Commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers pose a significant threat to other drivers because of their sheer size and weight. For this reason, truck drivers and commercial trucking companies are held to a high standard when it comes to safety. While not every individual will live up to these standards, even the most highly trained truck drivers will be unable to avoid an accident in the event of a mechanical malfunction. Of the numerous mechanical systems that work together to power trucks, the one system that is perhaps the most important when it comes to safety is the braking system. When a commercial truck’s brakes malfunction, a dangerous accident is much more likely to occur.
