In the immediate aftermath of a car or truck accident, many people seem to focus on the question of whether there was a driving violation that can hold one driver responsible. Indeed, accident investigations will naturally look into questions of left turn errors, speeding and illegal lane changes as possible causes of a motor vehicle crash. A more detailed investigation may reveal that the true cause of an accident at an intersection or a rear-end accident was brake failure.
Ohio Product Liability Attorneys Investigate Brake Failure Accidents
A car accident caused by defective brakes may in fact become a product liability case. The liable party might be:

- A used-car business that sold the vehicle without thoroughly inspecting the brakes
- A mechanic who improperly installed brake pads
If you were seriously injured or if your loved one was killed in an accident involving a vehicle’s failure to stop in time, the possibility of brake failure should be part of a careful investigation.
