Automobile accidents in the United States are unfortunately the most common type of accidents. They are caused by a wide range of factors. Driver error is a well recorded reason for many car accidents, although faulty vehicle parts and poor road conditions contribute significantly as well.

If the brakes of an automobile are faulty, then there is a high chance that a crash could take place, especially if the driver has to brake suddenly. All sorts of serious injuries could take place if the vehicle smashes at speed into the rear of another vehicle or into an obstruction that has occurred on the road. Faulty brakes, poor or worn tires and steering are the three most common reasons for accidents, following driver error.

If you have had the misfortune to have been the victim of a car accident and you believe that the car’s brakes were faulty then you should hire the services of a knowledgeable car accident lawyer to help you file a claim for damages. It will need all the determination and skill of an experienced competent lawyer to gather together the information that will determine the cause of the car accident.

When accidents occur because of faulty brakes, the victims could be the occupants of the vehicle with the faulty brakes, or the driver and passenger of a second vehicle may sustain more serious injuries if they had the misfortune to collide with an automobile with faulty brakes.

What causes brake failure?

Who should take responsibility for the failure?

An accident investigator’s job is to find the person who is to blame for the car accident. All successful personal injury claims have to be able to prove conclusively that an individual or organization was to blame for any defect in the brakes and that such a defect resulted in the car accident. If poor maintenance of the brakes was found to be the cause, then the person responsible for the brake’s maintenance will be accountable for the accident and any resultant injuries.

If the brake maintenance had been done by the owner of the car and it was not done correctly, then that person must be held responsible.  If the maintenance was performed by a tradesman or mechanic, then that person will take the blame.

You Will Need an Experienced Car Accident Attorney

If you, or a family member has been hurt in a car accident and you believe the incident was due to faulty brakes, then don’t hesitate but contact a competent lawyer who will help to determine who was at fault and who has to pay compensation to you the injured victim. If negligence has taken place and injuries caused, then a fair compensation settlement for those individuals should be expected.
