As the holidays near and many people begin their travels, vehicle maintenance becomes a critical step for all drivers. Ensuring your vehicle is safe should be one of the highest items on your priority list before going on a long trip.

One part of the vehicle that you must maintain properly is your brakes. Your brakes are vital in stopping your car before a collision occurs. However, far too often, manufacturers equip their cars with defective brakes that can cause more harm than good.

How Defective Brakes Cause Damage

Whenever brakes are not working correctly, they can present numerous dangers. Worn brakes are one problem, but drivers can typically tell when they need to replace them. The brakes give off a squealing or grinding sound, and it’s time for a replacement. Defective brakes, however, may look perfectly fine and then suddenly stop working.

Defective brakes can break completely and slip from their position on the rotor. Whenever this happens, the brake can fail to stop the car from moving forward. When the driver needs to stop, such as in heavy holiday traffic, brake failure can prove disastrous.

Liability for Defective Brakes

When defective brakes are the cause of a collision, the manufacturer of the part will hold liability. The manufacturer must test and ensure the brakes are adequate for installation in a car. When they bypass safety for profit, manufacturers can cause severe harm.

In the world of car accident law, manufacturer negligence can result in the injured party filing a third-party liability claim. This type of claim allows injured individuals to go after manufacturers for their oversights and pursue compensation.

Our team at the Daspit Law Firm is aware of how cases work when manufacturers put faulty brakes on their vehicles. We work hard to hold them accountable for their actions and seek the compensation our clients deserve.
