Large, 18-wheel vehicles provide very important services to the United States public, transporting goods and products all over the country on a daily basis. As such, these vehicles spend a long time on our roads, which can be seriously problematic when a truck’s brakes are defective or malfunction after time passes. A vehicle’s brakes allow a driver to maintain control over his or her vehicle, and without properly functioning brakes, an 18-wheeler can become extremely destructive.
If you or someone you know has been hit by a truck because the truck’s brakes malfunctioned or were defective, you might be able to get financial assistance through a personal injury claim, holding the responsible party financially liable.
