We have obtained compensation for victims injured in accidents caused by a wide range of mechanical failure
Today’s automobiles are made up of thousands of parts. When a single part goes bad, the results can be troubling. When vital parts or systems fail, the results are often catastrophic, especially when the failure occurs while the vehicle is in motion.
Our firm has successfully represented clients who have been injured in accidents caused by a wide range of mechanical failure, including:
- Brake failure: Failure to change brakes when necessary or to maintain the proper amount of brake fluid may cause a vehicle to be unable to stop in the proper amount of time. Even a minor delay in braking time may play a role in an accident; the longer it takes for a vehicle to reduce speed or come to a full stop, the more chance there is of a collision. Late-model vehicles have safeguards in place to eliminate braking issues, but older cars are susceptible to brake failure without the correct maintenance.
- Tire blowout or balding: As with any other part of a vehicle, tires must be maintained and replaced as needed. Failure to replace balding tires or to maintain the proper tire pressure may lead to blowouts or reduced stopping ability. Under inflation and worn out tires are the most common causes of accidents involving a tire issue.
- Steering issues: Late model vehicle offer a number of features designed to improve a driver’s steering ability, including power steering. Failure to properly maintain a power steering pump, steering linkage or any other part of the steering column may negatively impact the driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle.
- Suspension deficiencies: The suspension system in your vehicle is designed to keep your wheels in contact with the roadway in any environment. Failure to maintain a vehicle’s suspension system, including replacing faulty shocks, may impair the vehicle’s ability to maintain safe contact with the roadway. When a vehicle loses traction or adequate contact with the road, the chances of an accident occurring increases greatly.
