Depending on the filesystem you use there may or may not be a chkdsk-alike...

Depending on the filesystem you use there may or may not be a chkdsk-alike called fsck.. for instance fsck.ext4 is the chkdsk equivalent for ext4 file systems.
You shouldn't need fsck for modern filesystems anyway since they have journaling functions and should be able to recover from crashes.
If you DO chose to run fsck, be aware that you can easily unintentionally trash your filesystem
