Although any auto defect can be dangerous, they can be particularly hazardous when they affect a semi truck or 18-wheeler. When a truck part is defective or malfunctions, it can lead to a catastrophic accident that may affect multiple drivers and their passengers. As such, it is essential that truck drivers and trucking companies perform regular maintenance and inspections on all vehicle parts, but sometimes, a truck defect can go undetected until it results in an accident.
