The Dangers of Brake Defects
Individuals who purchase a vehicle typically do so with the expectation that their new vehicle will function properly and that they will be safe behind the wheel. If the manufacturer uses faulty or defective materials in the construction of the vehicle, drivers and passengers alike may suffer serious injuries in an accident.
One of the most important systems in any vehicle is the brake system, which allows drivers to control their speed and bring the vehicle to a stop. Defective brake parts or design can cause devastating accidents that may result in serious injuries or even death. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident caused by defective brake parts, design, or installation, contact the Waukesha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 today.
Drivers, passengers, and other people on the road may be injured in a serious accident if a vehicle’s brakes do not function properly. Defects may include:
- Faulty design of the brake system
- Cheap or damaged components
- Improper installation of brake systems or specific parts
- Electrical wiring or detection-system failure
It is the responsibility of vehicle manufacturers to use parts that are free from damage or potentially dangerous defects. In addition, it is essential for manufacturers to thoroughly test their vehicles for potential defects before releasing them for consumer purchase.
