Automotive Brake Failure

Despite all the advances that have been made in motor vehicle safety features, perhaps the most important component remains the brake system. Proper brake function can be an urgent necessity when road conditions suddenly change or when another motorist takes an unexpected action. The instant when you recognize that your brakes are not working can be utterly terrifying, and the collisions that may result from defective or malfunctioning brakes tend to be quite severe.

If you have been injured in a crash that was precipitated by the failure of your brakes, then it may be possible to pursue financial compensation through a civil action against a negligent manufacturer or mechanic. This might offer you the best opportunity to secure the resources that you need to obtain necessary medical care. Contact the Charleston car accident lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.

CAUSES OF BRAKE MALFUNCTION

Possible causes of brake malfunction may include:

  • Use of deficient materials or parts
  • Improper installation of brake parts
  • Disconnected, severed, or leaking brake fluid lines
  • Irregular and highly concentrated heating patterns on brake discs
  • Leaking of oil onto the brake discs

In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, while you may have an appreciation of the fact that your crash was facilitated by a brake problem it may be unclear what specific flaw or flaws led to that dangerous event. A thorough investigation by a skilled and experienced attorney can help to ensure that you are able to determine which party bears responsibility for your accident.
