Truck Accidents Caused by Brake Malfunction
Even when trucking companies and their drivers do everything that they can to ensure their vehicles are operating correctly, there is little that either party can do to protect against a mechanical defect or malfunction of the brake system. That being said, liability for these accidents usually shifts to the company responsible for producing or designing the defective or malfunctioning system.
