Brake Failure

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:

  • The manufacturer of the vehicle that had issued recall notices regarding brakes
  • 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. Clark, Perdue & List Co, LPA, offers help and advice to car accident victims and their families. From law offices in Columbus, Ohio, brake failure car accident attorneys can evaluate your case and make recommendations as to how to pursue maximum available compensation after a motor vehicle accident.
