Defective Brakes

A car’s braking system is undeniably one of the most important safety features installed in an automobile, even though it may not be regarded as such. When they work correctly, the brakes serve to bring the car to a safe and complete stop or to decelerate when events or the course of the road necessitate a slowdown. Unfortunately, brake malfunction is a common and dangerous occurrence. Brake malfunctions may be caused by a number of reasons, but if the accident was caused by defective or poorly manufactured brakes, you may be able to pursue legal action.

Causes of Brake Malfunction

Oftentimes, brake malfunctions occur due to a third party’s negligence, carelessness, or inattentiveness in acknowledging a problem with the brakes. These third parties can include car designers, maintenance workers, inspection workers, or manufacturers. Common causes of brake malfunction include:

  • Damage to brake pads and discs
  • Leaking brake fluid or oil
  • Use of poor quality parts
  • Hydraulic lines being improperly installed or maintained

If a party involved in the construction or maintenance of a car fails to identify problems with the brakes and an accident occurs at a later date, that party may be found to be legally liable for the accident. A knowledgeable attorney can help to ensure that your case is properly and thoroughly investigated.
